Best Tracks of 2016 (So Far…)

Life is a collection of experiences, which are made more memorable with a terrific soundtrack. Not every experience has a track to score the moment, but how often does a great moment have a corresponding track that helps create the experience and sear it into your memory for life? Whatever the experience or whatever the track, both become forever intertwined. Many of the 2016 tracks listed below have already seared their way into my memory, and I encourage you to enjoy these tracks and make them completely your own. One bit of advice, turning the bass up and rolling the windows down while cranking Beck’s banger WOW is a memorable way to cruise any city.

Tracks that Just Missed the Cut:
ALL I EVER WONDER, St. Paul & The Broken Bones / DO IT, TRY IT, M83
EARTH TO HEAVEN, Esperanza Spalding / DANA KATHERINE SCULLY, Tacocat

LAZARUS, David Bowie / I HAVE BEEN TO THE MOUNTAIN, Kevin Morby
BRING MY BABY BACK, Dr. Dog / QUIET AMERICANS, Shearwater
