61 GDFR - Flo Rida GDFR - 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.

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

63 Afterglow - Chvrches Afterglow - Chvrches
64 Flood on the Floor - Purity Ring Flood on the Floor - Purity Ring
65 I Am Machine - Three Days Grace I Am Machine - Three Days Grace

One of my favorite songs from Three Days Grace. Should be number 1

This song is much better than all of those pop songs...

I love this song so much! It represents me as a machine...and I love this band! Definitely my third favorite "first Fall Out Boy second Breaking Benjamin"

Second best song of 2015, second to Lamb Of God's 512, but still great song.

66 How Much a Dollar Cost - Kendrick Lamar How Much a Dollar Cost - Kendrick Lamar

Like many have said, Barack Obama called this his favourite song of 2015. He has good tastes. Thanks Obama

Damn, maybe not as successfully commercially but so meaningful - KapiteinKaas

This was Obama's favorite song of 2015. While I don't exactly think that, it is pretty close. - WonkeyDude98

68 I Bet My Life - Imagine Dragons I 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

69 Confident - Demi Lovato Confident - 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

70 Run Away With Me - Carly Rae Jepsen

Why is this lower than I Really Like You? - ChasedByGangs

One of my favorite albums of the year came from Carly Rae Jepsen, of all people. If someone told me this would happen back in 2012, I would've slapped them. But seriously, this is such a great, uplifting synth-pop album, and Carly just sells all that upbeat emotion. And this song is one of the best on here. - Zach808

This song is pop perfection. I never though I'd say that about Carly Rae jepsen but her album was amazing and this is coming from someone who doesn't ever listen to pop. This song is easily the best of the album and is just perfect.

This is the most underrated pop song of 2015 to be honest.

71 Photograph - Ed Sheeren Photograph - Ed Sheeren

The melody of this song sounds almost timeless, and the vocals are perfect. I love the emotion that Ed pours into his songs.

My first dance with a boy was with this song. Every time I hear it it makes me feel warm and happy

Well its way better than what I hear on the radio these days - FlakyCuddles43

Such a bittersweet song for me. Love it but it makes me sad as well.

72 Pedestrian at Best - Courtney Barnett Pedestrian 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

73 7 Years - Lukas Graham 7 Years - Lukas Graham

I just listened to it today 4/12/16. And I gotta say, 7 Years is such a sad, beautiful song. Explains every moment in life. Please listen to this song, I promise you, that you will not regret it. - Catacorn

Great song except for the lyrics. No symbolism, no metaphor, just a man saying what age he is. Very dull, and it seems like something a kid could write.

It's a song about life. Like, the whole life. Every other song seems to be about just one moment in it.

75 Better 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

76 Psycho - Muse

Love this song, especially those opening guitar notes

If I knew this song was on this list I would have voter for it instead of reapers.
Either way they're both great songs. - Blackclover01

79 Don't Be So Hard On Yourself - Jess Glynne Don't Be So Hard On Yourself - Jess Glynne

Best vocal of the year, nearly Adele standard!

I found this song on a music app on my tablet. This song is truly amazing, and this is the first song of hers that I like. - madoog

I can relate to this song. I am always hard on myself.

This song is so best song

80 Cake by the Ocean - Dnce Cake by the Ocean - Dnce

I can not stand this song, and here are some reasons why:

1. It's about sex. I see third graders chanting it, like it's the best song ever, when they don't even know what it's actually about. Why is it so popular?

2. It's one of those terrible, summer songs that was most definitely ripped off. I thought for a few seconds this was This Summers gonna hurt, then the melody comes in. I think I died. Again.

3. Overplayed. I actually stopped listening to my local radio station and rely on my phones music for good music, since the radio has nothing to offer these days besides terrible songs.

4. Yes, I know I'm ranting, but I can't help it. It just went on the radio AGAIN! (Even though I just mentioned up above I don't listen to the radio anymore )

5. I-I-I-I-I-I keep on hoping we'll cake by the ocean. (I keep on hoping we'll have sex on the beach)

I hate this song. I wanted to like it but the lyrics are even worse than Cheerleader. - WonkeyDude98

Okay, let me be more specific. This song is a disaster on almost all grounds. It's the worst Uptown Funk song that could have been made. More than anything, this is two ripoffs in one. This is an Uptown Funk ripoff (very blatantly), and a ripoff of This Summer's Gonna Hurt by Maroon 5.

While I do prefer this over This Summer's Gonna Hurt, it's not by much. The same runny synths that ruined TSGH, and the same feeling of a horrible scorching summer. As for Uptown Funk, the bassline is the same and the percussion is the same. In fact, the first time I heard this I thought it WAS Uptown Funk, until Joe Jonas' horrid voice came on.

Joe Jonas is so earnest and light that you almost think he's talking about actual baked goods...until the "you're delicious" line. Also, he can only barely hit those high notes on the chorus. It's painful. Half-star/5, THE CAKE IS A LIE! (Now that I've made that joke, it's time to rethink my life) - WonkeyDude98

This song was overplayed, but it is catchy - slimshady901
