TOP 25 Colorado Music Videos of 2016

When you have time, fire up this video playlist on your big screen HDTV … there’s about two hours of videos here.  I can’t really say which is my favorite.  I like each one for a different reason.  What I can say is that I think these 25 videos truly represent the broad diversity of our scene.

There’s something from just about every genre and style of music on this playlist …metal, hip-hop, country, folk, pop, funk and rock from international superstars and award winners to some of the best of our burgeoning up and coming national caliber local scene.  …2017 was a great year for Colorado music videos.

Starring (in order of appearance):  Whiskey Blanket, Wheelchair Sports Camp, Allegaeon, OneRepublic, SuCh, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Megan Burtt, Paper Bird, Elephant Revival, Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony, Gabrielle Louise, SHEL, Bonnie and the Clydes, Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts, Andy Palmer, Wendy Woo, Eros and the Eschaton, Grim and Darling, Mawule, The Motet, Big Gigantic, Edison, The Lumineers.

80 + Colorado LPs/EPs of 2016. 

Building a list of the “best” or the “top 5” is always so hard for me.  I like everything I play on the show, or I would not have played it to begin with.  These are the 80+ album and ep releases that found their way into my playlist catalog for 2016… that I added after Jan 1 2016.  There are some world class releases among this year’s crop.  What were your favorites of the year?  Check ’em off.  Poll follows the available lp/ep embeds I could find.  There are a few missing …
