2016 sucked in a lot of ways but at least we can look back and say it was a fun year for new music. Here's a look at the top 11 WRRV songs of the year based on total airplay.

11. Twenty One Pilots 'Ride'

The first of two songs from Twenty One Pilots in the top 11, Ride followed up the ultra successful 'Stressed Out'. In fact, if the countdown went to 12, there would be three songs from 21P.

10. Red Hot Chili Peppers 'Dark Necessities'

The Red Hot Chili Peppers returned in a big way in 2016 with The Getaway. They have three sold out shows at Madison Square Garden in early February.

9. Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream

Originally released in October of 2008, the song saw a huge resurgence after placement in a Honda commercial that played during the Super Bowl. It's been stuck in everyone's head ever since.

8. Strumbella's 'Spirits'

The Strumbella's appeared in Newburgh at WRRV Sessions in early 2016, they'll be back in the area for a performance at Mountain Jam 2017!

7. Bishop Briggs 'River'

She's British but based in Los Angeles, Bishop Briggs opened for Coldplay and made her debut appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in 2016.

6. Fitz and the Tantrums 'Handclap'

Number six in terms of airplay, but number one in terms of catchiness. 'Handclap' dropped in March and never looked back.

5. Lumineers 'Ophelia'

The Lumineers recorded their most recent album here in the Hudson Valley. They rocked the Speed of Sound fest in August and will be at MSG for two nights in February.

4. Cage The Elephant 'Trouble'

Tell Me I'm Pretty was released in December of last year but 'Trouble' hit the airwaves in April.

3. Kaleo 'Way Down We Go'

From Iceland, Kaleo's second studio album A/B was released in June. Our number three song of the year has been downloaded nearly have a million times.

2. Twenty One Pilots 'Heathens'

The Suicide Squad movie may not have lived up to expectations, but this lead single off the soundtrack went on to be one of the most played songs of the year.

1. Blink 182 'Bored To Death'

Blink 182 returned in July with a new album and a new singer/guitarist. Matt Skiba took over for Tom DeLonge who may or may not be off looking for aliens.
