Top 10 ___: Top Thirty Notable Omissions from past WOW Hits albums!

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled 20 Artists and Songs that in our opinion should be present on WOW Hits 2018!

It seems that with the advent of Spotify, and more and more newer artists being present on WOW Hits albums, that there are more radio friendly Christian songs now than ever before. So some would say that it stands to reason that previous WOW Hits albums, especially those made in the 90’s and 00’s, were quite ‘easy’ to choose 30-odd tracks as the ‘best of the year’ without not much glaring oversights in terms of song choices.

But on this particular Top Tens post, I will delve into 30 songs that in my opinion should have been placed onto WOW Hits albums over the years (not including recent WOW Hits- of which you can view here and here!). With this year’s WOW Hits and previous recent years, I have often lamented the choice of songs, pointing out that another 10-15 tracks could have easily been equally as deserving. How about from the mid-90’s onwards? Read on to find out! Note that this isn’t a griping session, but an observation of tracks that could have brightened up the track lists of previous WOW compilations.
