Alert, alert, alert. WOW Hits’s facebook page released the official cover of WOW Hits 2019 Deluxe Edition (as seen above), so I guess that means the official track listing is not too far away. Usually, for a album release of WOW Hits around September/October, the official track listing is around August sometime. So, not too long to go. With reference to hits and everything that has been released til now, what do I reckon should be on WOW Hits 2019? Read on to find out. Happy predicting! You can also read about our previous predictions, here, here, here and here!

If you have been an avid fan of this site, you probably would have noticed that we have posted many WOW Hits predictions at strategic points during the year for a particular installment. But we have done predictions for a few WOW Hits throughout our time as a site (from WOW Hits 2015 onwards!), so it’s time to once again revisit another older WOW Hits, and see if the track listing is really the ‘year’s best’ or not (as we have done previously for WOW Hits 2009 and WOW Hits 2013!). So…you can view the official track list of WOW Hits 2004 on Wikipedia, and then my fantasy list below (which include some tracks the same as the official list, and some tracks different)! Enjoy reading, and coming up with your own ‘official lists’!

A couple or so months away from the official track listing of WOW Hits 2019…then again, now is May and the track listing will be released around August time I reckon. So, with reference to hits and everything that has been released til now, what do I reckon should be on WOW Hits 2019? Read on to find out. Happy predicting! You can also read about our previous predictions, here, here and here!

If you have been a fan of this site for the past while, or even if you have been just perusing, you may have noticed we have posted many WOW Hits predictions at strategic points during the year for a particular installment. Because there is only space for 39 songs on each WOW Hits (maybe even less on previous years, especially in the 2000’s when there weren’t any bonus deluxe editions!), it’s understandable when a few smash hit songs are omitted for reasons unknown.

If you have been a fan of this site for the past while, or even if you have been just perusing, you may have noticed quite a number of WOW Hits predictions (around 4 or 5 or so) at strategic points during the year for a particular installment. While these days now it seems that the WOW Hits brand may be a bit redundant, every year it’s still half the fun guessing which songs make the cut and which songs meet the cut. Because there is only space for 39 songs on each WOW Hits (maybe even less on previous years, especially in the 2000’s when there weren’t any bonus deluxe editions!), it’s understandable when certain hit songs are omitted for whatever reason.

Like it or not, WOW Hits is pretty much the most talked about Christian album release each year. Every year around September/October, we see Capitol CMG, Word Label Group and Provident Label Group come together to release a compilation of that year’s most charted music. And thus we are into the year of 2018 (just in the first week of January) and what does this mean? That the date for WOW Hits 2019 is coming closer. And with new songs releasing as singles from artists both new and old coming out each week, we as a site thought it would be fitting to start off 2018 with a WOW Hits 2019 prediction (our first prediction of WOW Hits 2019, which we released at the end of October 2018, can be viewed here!). Below are 39 songs that are currently getting success (or some that I think could get success in the future) that I think are shoe-ins for WOW Hits 2019 if it was collated now. But who am I to think that this version is final? There’s another 6-7 months before the official list releases. And I’m sure by that time, artists like Chris Tomlin, Francesca Battistelli, for KING AND COUNTRY, Brandon Heath, Third Day, MercyMe, Matthew West and Newsboys (all of which are absent from this WOW Hits 2019 prediction) are sure to be included in the official WOW Hits 2019 track list…so I guess, this list that I’m about to unveil is far from perfect…but it’s very solid if the WOW compilation were to be made now. Thus, what I have said before still stands now- maybe not just one 2 disc compilation at the end of the year cataloging the year’s best in CCM? Maybe 2 volumes (each with 2 discs) per year? Without further ado, here below is 365 Days of Inspiring Media’s second track list prediction for WOW Hits 2019, slated to release sometime in September/October 2018!

Hi everyone, how has your week been? Seeing that it’s late October yet again, and this time last year, we posted our first WOW HITS 2018 predictions, it’s time for us to predict…you guessed it, the track list for WOW Hits 2019. In fact, I’m sure you all are thinking about which songs are shoe-ins for next year’s compilation even now! Because, let’s be frank and honest here, WOW Hits has always been and will always be the most talked about Christian compilation album released in any year. So, what better time than now to make a prediction of WOW Hits 2019…sure probably half of my predictions will be correct (or maybe even less than half)…but, who knows. WOW Hits has always been known for placing dated songs on the annual WOW albums… So without further ado, here’s my stab at the tracklist for WOW Hits 2019. Some are independent artists, some are signed, some songs aren’t singles (yet!), but mind you, all of this is just speculation! Anyway, stay tuned to more predictions later this year and into next year! Happy predicting!

Welcome to the latest installment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled 10 artists and songs that in our opinion should have been included on the official WOW Hits 2018 track listing, but weren’t. This time, on this special post, and in keeping with a similar theme, I will take an educated guess and list 20 songs that should be shoe-ins for WOW Hits 2019 (key word- should… I wrote a similar post last year and only 2 out of the 20 made it on WOW Hits 2018!). Some songs that I will predict for WOW Hits 2019 are released right now, so audio slides/lyric videos/music videos/song stories will be below, but others haven’t been released yet and I am just predicting based on the artist. Will these tracks be there in a year’s time? Only time will tell.

Welcome to the latest instalment of our Top 10 blog series. It’s been a while since we last posted Top Tens on this site (check out the last post here!)- last time, we threw back to the good ol’ days of DC Talk, and delved into some of our favourite tracks that gave us major nostalgia. This time, in light of the recent WOW Hits 2018 song reveal on amazon.com (you can view the list here), I will unveil 10 songs from 10 artists that I think should have been in within the track list of 39, but weren’t, for one reason or another. What I will say is this- there are millions of popular radio singles and CCM songs releasing every year, and to fit them all into 39 spots is impossible. There will be songs that will miss out. Simple as that. However, these songs that I post below were, in my opinion, shoe-in’s for inclusion, and deserved to be present. Why they were omitted, I will probably never know.
