5. "Golden Ticket," by Highasakite

Okay, this is a bit of a guilty-pleasure song, but we just can't deny a proper high — and it's got a good beat.

4. "So High," by Motet

Denver-based Motet rolls up an instant classic about "the haze of greener gardens" here in WeedStream's beloved Colorado.

3. "Let the Chalice Blaze," by Thievery Corporation

The only corporation that WeedStream counts as real people, the Thieves gave us this holiday treat — a juicy (almost) instrumental that is impossible not to love.

2. "Shine," by Mondo Cozmo

Everybody on your feet and start waving your hands in the air: This is the new weed anthem for the ages. You're likely to hear this on a radio station soon, but remember where you heard it first.

1. "Frankie Sinatra," by Avalanches

By far our favorite song of 2016, weed song or not.  If you see only one music video from 2016, this is the one to see. It's not only a song about getting high (in so many ways), but probably a song you have to be high to love. WeedStream loves it, all right, enough to make it #1 on our Top 10 Weed Songs of 2016.
