Every year for the past 5 years I’ve created a playlist at the start of the year in  iTunes. As the year goes on, whenever a song really grabs me I add it to that playlist and at the end of the year it is almost like a soundtrack to that year. This year I added more songs than ever to that list but a few of them didn’t survive the full year and were culled. Sometimes they just don’t make the grade. Now that we’ve hit 2016 and there won’t be any more songs added to the list, it’s time to share the list with you. The songs are in the order that they were added as the year went on. For the first time ever artists features more than once. Of course one of those is Kylie. She’s a featured artist on two of the tracks for 2015. There was nearly a third, her camp disco Christmas duet with Dannii nearly made the cut too. Ellie Goulding actually features twice too!
