Other Songs

 (These songs do not entirely fit on the sections above. I will explain the reason, but they are great nevertheless)

Life on the road by David Brent (from comedy movie Life on the road this is not a proper artist as it is a character in a movie who is a musician)

Safari by J. Balvin and Pharrell Williams (Latin American artists have mixed music with North American ones. Safari is a very catchy song, perhaps the best one of the year)

Starboy by The Weeknd and Daft Punk (Canadian  R&B star The Weeknd has found a great partner on French musicians Daft Punk. The electronic duo helps him with a brilliant sound)

Kerala by Bonobo (apart from being a great song, it has a music video that it is truly original)

Ride them on down by The Rolling Stones (The Rolling Stones has released an album that are blues covers from some unknown and old artists from 1950s or 1960s. These songs are great and are pure blues, the music video of this song for instance, is starred by actress Kristen Stewart)

You want it darker by Leonard Cohen (The farewell of poet and musician Leonard Cohen can scarcely be better. He has died in this 2016)

Fade by Kanye West (to end up the most incredible music video of 2016, wait until the end because it is something never seen before. Rapper Kanye West finds in artist Teyana Taylor the perfect person to make this surprising music video)

The yuletide feeling all of us must have these days will be better if we add some great music. Have a great holiday season!!
