Whew, we made it through. As mentioned earlier it was devilishly hard choosing these Top 40 tracks of the year. We tried to pick ones that have had longevity and that we think will stick around for years to come. We limited ourselves generally to one track per artist – many of these had more than one deserving song. Here is the playlist – from 40 down to Maroon 5 at No. 1.
Its Friday so its time for five brand new tracks to get their first spin on the hour every hour from 9am. We’ll keep playing these tracks on New Zealand Net Radio, home of streaming radio ad free 24/7 throughout New Zealand.
Rüfüs Du Sol – Treat You Better
Been loving this music from the Australian trio this week, another chance to enjoy this great new album.
Richard Ashcroft – That’s When I Feel It
From his pleasant new album Natural Rebel the former Blur frontman has produced some more simple but classic sounds.
Billie Eilish – When The Party’s Over
We can take or leave some of this popsters work but this is one of her best singles. I wish she didn’t look like she’d over-indulged in mind changing substances all the time though!
NEIKED – How Did I Find You (feat. Miriam Bryant)
Openside – Work Out
And saving the best for last, another teaser song from Kiwi band Openside – these tracks are such earworms – should be in the top 10!
