Best Pop Music of 2016: From Bowie to Beyonce
Pop music in 2016 was about the element of surprise. That was true of the two big B's who were the biggest stories of the year - Beyoncé and David Bowie.

In Memoriam: The artists we lost in 2016
It started with David Bowie on Jan. 10, and never seemed to stop. 2016 has been the annus horribilis of dying pop stars.

Dan DeLuca's playlist of 2016
The songs on this best of 2016 playlist are not ranked or limited to big pop hits. You will find some of those here, from No. 1 albums by Drake, Rihanna, and Solange.

Less in the sense that, at this point in the digital age, how many major artists have not already had their bodies of work excavated? More in that labels have answered that question by packaging complete album collections on CD and vinyl while digging deeper for rarities and creating multidisc sets built around classic albums.

With Trump in office, a new culture war has begun. 'Hamilton' was just the first battlefield.
It would be hard to name a work of popular art more emblematic of the Obama years than Hamilton.
