Name that song: Your 2016 in music
Just as a picture speaks a thousand words, your “recently played” playlist says a lot about what you’ve been through. What tracks defined your year?

MANILA, Philippines — What does your Spotify playlist say about you?

Just as a picture speaks a thousand words, your “recently played” playlist says a lot about what you’ve been through. Is your song for the week “Starboy” by the Weeknd, perhaps implying lots of feel-good late nights dancing at a club? Or is your song of the week “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M., hinting at a number of long, bleary-eyed car rides and a mood a little more morose?

Music has a profound effect on our mood, but we’re the ones picking the playlists, too (READ: When music elevates mood). We have no one else to blame but ourselves. 

2016 was one hell of a year. But as we put one foot in 2017, let’s take a look back at your year in song. Tell us, how has your 2016 been?

If “Perfect Illusion” perfectly describes your 2016 love life, then we’re glad you’ve finally opened your eyes. 

That’s rough, but cheer up, buddy! A little alone time every now and then never hurt. 

 

Sometimes all you need is the perfect song to get you through those inevitable rough patches in life. There’s nothing like a little Coldplay to Fix You. 


And when all else fails, there’s no better catharsis than a good cry. 

 

Were you hearing heavenly choir music in 2016? Maybe that means your year was #blessed.

Yeah, last year was a blur for us too.

But hey, we’re alive! And we’re thankful for the rollercoaster ride that was 2016. In any case, if last year wasn’t your cupe of tea, at least we can look forward to an even better playlist this 2017. – Rappler.com
