Hoo boy, it has been awhile since I've done one of these. (October 2016, to be exact.) But skip the holiday music, and there's still some stuff to listen to, to get your 2017 off to a good start if it hasn't already.
As always, it's limited in that if an artist hasn't chosen to post a song on Spotify, I can't put it on the list, nor can I feature songs from as-yet-unreleased albums. But I'm always keeping stuff in reserve for the next Spotify playlist.
