Babylon TOP100 – 2016

Top10_01
This is the end! It’s our favorite time of the year! The reasons are many, but mostly because it’s time for the 2016 Babylon TOP100!

2016 will be remembered for many things, with music helping us get through some of the most difficult times in our region. Babylon FM reached many milestones throughout the year, as we continued to help the people of Kurdistan discover many awesome songs from around the world. We began to broadcast on Erbil and Slemani for the first time ever, beginning in the summer!

The people in our region will remember 2016 mostly for the year that the tide finally turned against the Islamic State, and were driven out of nearby Nineveh province of Mosul. The music continued to help us during these difficult times as we tried to make the best out of it! The most played song on Babylon FM was Adele with When We Were Young. The fans voted for our very own Helin Aro with Lori as their 1# in 2016. While Babylon FM staff picked Michigan-native Mike Posner with I Took A Pill In Ibiza as their #1!
