Yearly playlists

Playlist Of The Year

It’s a few days to go until we celebrate the end of 2017 and welcome 2018 but to be honest there’s something else I am much more excited about.

Every year on December 31st I produce my ‘Playlist Of The Year’ across on my music blog Talk About Pop Music. It consists of my Top 40 most played songs of the year according to my listening stats on


I’m always so excied! This year I will be doing a live countdown of all the songs in my Top 40 so follow me on Twitter or keep an eye on the blog post which will be live updating!

I’ve kept track of them all since 2006 and since this year Spotify has allowed the creation of your own cover art I have had a ball the last few days creating a cover for all my previous playlists.

It’s a great opportunity to take a walk down musical memory lane.

Have a listen to the previous years below and let me know what you think.

Remember stay tuned on Sunday to find out what makes it onto the 2017 playlist!
