Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. It’s been a while since we last posted Top Tens on this site (check out the last post here!)- last time, we explored 10 bands who have changed their sound somewhat, or ‘drastically’ over the years, through a lead singer change. This time, in light of the recent WOW Hits 2016 song reveal on Spotify (you can view the list here!), I will unveil 10 artists songs that I think should have been in within the track list of 39, but weren’t, for one reason or another.
I won’t be listing any reason though (I will leave that for the extensive review of WOW Hits 2016 coming very soon!) but 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 are definitely some songs that will surely miss out. But these ten below personally were shoe-in’s for inclusion, and deserved to be present. Why they were omitted, I will probably never know.
Josh Wilson- That Was Then, This Is Now
Audio Adrenaline- Love Was Stronger
Sanctus Real- On Fire
Michael W Smith- Sky Spills Over
Nichole Nordeman- The Unmaking
Chris August- The Maker
Finding Favour- Cast My Cares
Matt Redman- It Is Well
Switchfoot- When We Come Alive
Dan Bremnes- Where The Light Is
So let’s open the floor for discussion. What is your ideal WOW Hits 2016 list? You can view our predictions here and here!
