2015 CKOI Year-End Top 50

lettrage-camion-ckoiMontreal radio station CKOI has published a year-end Top 50 chart annually since 1976. It gives us a good idea of the most popular Francophone songs by year. Of all the year-end charts, this one is the most Canadian as it includes both Anglophone and Francophone hits from both domestic and international artists. The resulting year-end Top 50 is a very balanced presentation. You may find that there is also more variety of genres with pop, rock, dance, R&B, folk, soul, and even country. The top Canadian Franco song of the year is Jean Leloup’s “Paradis City”. In classic radio style, let’s count them down from #50 to #1. Canadian artists are bolded in red.
