41Confident - Demi Lovato

A self-empowerment anthem that actually has powerful instrumentals and an actual vocal presence to it? This is everything Fight Song should have been. I don't usually even like Demi Lovato, but this song is great.

I love demi lovato. Her voice rocks it is so powerful. She also went through a lot in her past so she is a great idol to a lot of people. This song is also very powerful and meaningful- love it.

This song is great I love Demi's sound and the emotion in her songs and how she puts out music she loves and that she knows others will like and relate to!

Much better version of Demi Lovato

42Magnets - Disclosure

I like this song magnets because it's not much boring song

It's an electro-lover's dream...and Lorde is one of the few artists who actually has talent. Today's mainstream singers have about as much talent as my pug.

It's Lorde who completes it. It wouldn't be the same with any other artists. I mean, her sultry, salty voice and that bouncy electro beat...ah, wonder. 10/10

44Better When I'm Dancin' - Meghan Trainor

Every time I listen to this song is will always dance. It's the soundtrack for peanut's the movie. And I love Meghan train or since the song all about that Bass. My sisters didn't like the song lips are moving

Who are muse, and rita ora, and since when is she and muse are better than Meghan trainor's better when I'm dancing? In poms, we're dancing to this song, it's just amazing!

What a perfect little tune for the Peanuts movie

The most favourite song by Meghan Trainor

45Flood on the Floor - Purity Ring
46Four Five Seconds - Rihanna

Paul has nothing to prove to anybody in the entire world, except his grandchildren. This brings him into their world. Outside of that, the whole lot of them should not be allowed within 100 feet of Sir Paul.

This is an abomination. paul is a legend, how did he end up with these 2? How sad. - gemcloben

Well, I love Rihanna, I respect McCartney as a legend. But I hate Kanye. Well, after this music, I started to think that Kanye can sing.

Pretty good song, but Paul McCartney? ARE YOU DOING THERE MAN!

47Let It Happen - Tame Impala
48Trap Queen - Fetty Wap

WHAT? REALLY? This song is complete garbage. I despise Fetty Wap, I truly do, he is a talentless hack who is fake as hell. What really surprises me is that he wasn't a one hit wonder, he had 4 hits this year WHAT THE HELL!?!?! Why the hell is this guy getting so much praise, he can't rap, his flow is horrible and his voice is god awful. He's just like any other crappy modern rapper so why is he getting praise? Also I forgot to mention his songs sound exactly the same, Infact, he is the most same sounding "musician" I have ever heard. He reuses the same beats and even the same lyrics. But what pisses my off the most is that he has only been around for 1 year and he got 3 hits in the top 11 in billboard hot 100. This was last achieved by The Beatles. THE ' Beatles! It disgusts me that somebody so talentless in every single way, who has only been around for a year has achieved something The Beatles achieved. Is this really how bad rap has become?

I am not voting for this song because it sounds great, or because it is not repetitive, or because it is a good song. I am voting for it because it was a hit in days, and launched Fetty Wap into becoming one of 2015's most influential artists in the Pop and Hip Hop genres. This was his beginning, and although many people now hate this song, it was only because of the constant repetition of the song, as well as the constant playing of it on every pop radio station in America. I know many people despise and will despise this song for the rest of their lives, but you have never thought of the number "1738" the same since.

This is probably Fetty Wap's best song. It is catchy and has flavor. The lyrics --- I be in the kitchen cooking pies for my baby --- wow. This song really delivers. It is a great song. I'm calling this quality music. - madoog

Actually he sings awesomely and really good rap and what is with the hells how the hell is he not in top ten

49Til It Happens to You - Lady Gaga

Best Lady Gaga song ever.

The powerful message about experiences just makes you feel emotional, inside and out.

So powerful message about raping while others...

50What Kind of Man - Florence + the Machine

This song is so powerful, so beautiful, so amazing. It truly is one of the year's best.

This is her best song yet. Its amazing and I am glad that it actually made it here. - HamedM1

This is their best song yet. The only better song so far in 2015 is Reapers by Muse. - Songsta41

Another theme song to add to my life.

51I Bet My Life - Imagine Dragons

Nowhere near my favorite Imagine Dragons song, as compared to Bleeding Out and even Gold, its sound is kinda bland and the hyperboles could have been less clumsy. But still, it's incredibly powerful and encompasses just how remorseful Dan is towards his parents. - WonkeyDude98

I really hate how all of the great bands (e.g. P! ATD, FOB, Imagine Dragons, Breaking Benjamin, etc.) are at the lowest numbers

52Cool for the Summer - Demi Lovato

I instantly liked it when I first heard it on television. This song is great. The vocals are amazing. I like that she pulls off a stressed syllable. - madoog

Why are all the Demi Lovato songs at 40th/ 100th and 107th place and she can actually sing but Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are much higher and Taylor is a decent singer but Selena is not very good

Reminds me of a Dairy Queen commercial.

Its an okay song but not as good as some of her other songs.

53Alright - Kendrick Lamar

This song is pure freedom... You don't see any drake songs being chanted at protests. Long live King Kendrick!

This is the best rap song of 2015! Anyone who disagrees doesn't know what real hip hop is. - DynamiteG

The best song from the best singer of the decade.

Best Kendrick Lamar song

54Pedestrian at Best - Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett is such an underrated artist. I am surprised this is even on the list. This list is full of tons of crap and I am so relieved to see a good song on here.

Why this song is here? It's not better to be in top ten? where we go!... - peyman_eun

55GDFR - Flo Rida

Unfortunately this song falls in the same mold as Right Round. Both songs are incredible for what they were meant for, but they were ripped off of songs (to be honest, as songs I prefer Right Round to Like A Record and prefer GDFR to Talk Dirty), and thus any respect I may have for them is lost. - WonkeyDude98

Not going to lie, this song is actually fairly good.

This song is bad and lazy ripoff of Talk Dirty by Jason Derulo, which was never a good song to start off with. It's also annoying as hell.

I still don't get how this ripped of Talk Dirty? Neither sounds remotely the same. - ProPanda

56Lean On - Major Lazer

I love this song it is so fun and I love the cover " peace is the mission" you should take that to heart.

It should be among the first five. It's a really an awesome song. It's very popular in my school. Popular than many of those listed in top 10.

I don't consider this a masterpiece. I do not like the way this song sounds --- the instrumental and vocals. I could tell that DJ Snake contributed to this track because the sounds stemmed from Turn Down From What are noticeable. DJ Snake's sounds in Lean On are a sharp form of the sounds in Turn Down For What. Microsoft likes this song. Microsoft used this song in their advertisement. - madoog

I like this song altho it takes NO talent to make it

57Centuries - Fall Out Boy

Good song and all, but didn't it become a hit in 2014?

It released in 2014, but it didn't become a hit and its album didn't get released until 2015. - WonkeyDude98

Best song ever, but it didn't come out in 2015

Technically, it did come out in 2015. At least, the album it was on came out in 2015, and Centuries charted only in 2015. However, since it was already eligible for (and already made) my best of 2014 list, I'm not bothering to do it again. - WonkeyDude98

I love Fall Out Boy they are my favorite band! While this isn't my favorite song by them...i still love it!

58Renegades - X Ambassadors

Should be in at least top 30... Too good of a song to be this low on the list!

Because some people actually have fairly good hearing so that is why its not in the top 25 DUH!

This is one of the best songs I have ever heard! Why is it not top 25?

This song is absolutely boring and annoying. - madoog

59Heavydirtysoul - Twenty One Pilots

Tyler actually writes about a feeling in his life, unlike some of the songs on the list

Starts out as rap then turns into great sounding voice

60Earned It - The Weeknd

Earned It is a great song and quite relaxing in a way. His voice is perfect for this song. 2015 was a great year for The Weeknd. - madoog

This song is my shhh. This is perfect for when your significant other deserve a reward because they "Earned It"

Does anyone know why he is called 'The Weeknd' Is it supposed to be Weekend or something?
