The perfect way to end one year, or begin another: a playlist built from the top 20 albums and the top 20 songs of 2016.
If you’ve read those lists this week – don’t worry, there’s still time if you haven't - you’ll know what to expect but not necessarily how you’ll get it.
The only ones missing are Kate Bush and Beyoncé, who aren't on Spotify – but sorry Ms Knowles, I’ll not be signing up for Tidal any time soon.
Enjoy. And as Larry Sanders used to say “no flipping” – no, really, see if you can ignore the shuffle button and play the songs in the running order. Go on, it only took me hours of calculating and sweating blood to sort that out.
