101 When We Were Young - Adele When We Were Young - Adele

I AM SO GLAD THIS WAS A HIT. While I do love Hello, River Lea, and especially Water Under The Bridge, this was the best song of 25 bar none. It's so emotional, so powerful, so captivating, it's almost unlike anything Adele's done before. This, while it was released in 2015, was this close to being my favorite hit song of 2016 (only beaten by Ride and In The Night). - WonkeyDude98

No it's eligible for 2016. It was made a single in January. Really love reading your comments. Even those I don't always agree with! - theOpinionatedOne

I feel that I am going to be cursed for saying this but I feel like I am the only person on this planet who does not like Adele's songs. She focuses way too much on her exes and the past which just puts me in a bad mood...This song sounds the same and makes me want to take a nap.

Haunting. I don't think it's possible to listen to this song without feeling at least a little melancholy after it ends.

I don't like it. - madoog

102 New York City - The Chainsmokers New York City - The Chainsmokers

This is the epitome of the word "majestic". The piano-based buildup, the atmospheric effect, the great melody, the soft vocals, the lyrics about needing time and peace to cope with a lost lover, and THAT DROP. One of the greatest drops ever. 6/5, as much as I rave over Roses and Don't Let Me Down, this blows them both out of the water. - WonkeyDude98

103 Drag Me Down - One Direction Drag Me Down - One Direction

Somebody wants to kill me because I hate One direction. That's stupid.

I honestly am a huge hater of One Direction. I once even made an anti One Direction rap. But this song absolutely fantastic and catchy and I can't help listening to it numerous times. I don't want to like this song because of the band that made it but I do. My friends all hate One Direction as well but they all like this song. It should be 4th.

Somebody says that if I don't like this song I haven't heard it. Yes I've heard it, and I don't like it. Very generic. Can you let people have opinions for once? God, people these days.

Yeah, sorry, hate this. Too generic, stereotypical, cliched, and overproducd. 0/5 - ProPanda

104 Til It Happens to You - Lady Gaga Til 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...

105 Loud Places - Jamie XX Loud Places - Jamie XX

Haven't heard a song this good, that puts you in a dreamy state in a long time. This song should at least be in the top 10

Not bade dud3 actually kinda nice if you know the meaning of it...

Wow, this is very low. It's at the top 700, when it should be in the Top 3. - djpenquin999

106 I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times) - Jamie XX I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times) - Jamie XX

The only song I didn't LOVE from Jamie XX's In Color. Because Young Thug. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

I'm surprised this barely got any radio. This was one of my favorite tracks of the year thanks to Jamie's production and Thugger sounding like he's having so much fun in the booth

4/5: Young Thug keeps this song, and the album from being the number 1 EDM album of the year - ProPanda

107 One Last Time - Ariana Grande One Last Time - Ariana Grande

I don't even understand why it's not even top 20, even though it's top 5 for me but anyway. It's one of the best songs Ariana has ever released. Yes, I know it is a song about Ariana expressing her regrets for being unfaithful to her boyfriend, so what? A lot of singers have unfaithful to their boyfriend/girlfriend haven't they? Let's not be so curious about what the song is about cause this song is really amazing. It is one of the few radio singles she has released which manage to showcase perfectly her powerful vocals. Even though the track is pop but at the same time a quite melancholically beautiful track that has a little bit of a dreamy feel to it. I love Ariana, and love this song and it's definitely one of the best songs of the year

This is an amazing song, I think the only reason it's not higher is because it was released earlier in 2015 so it's not as fresh in people's minds.

This is the one of good song by Ariana beside Why try.

Burn this song. Burn it. And every other song by Ariana Grande. But burn her, too.

108 Failure - Breaking Benjamin

In my opinion, this song is so much better than "Hello" by Adele. That song is alright, but it gets old quickly and it's pretty much the same as any other breakup song. Ben Burnley has such an awesome voice!

This is a great song it just gives a sense of empowerment

Why is the best song of 2015 not on top?!

109 I Want You to Know - Zedd I Want You to Know - Zedd

SERIOUSLY?! 85! What a shame! I bet more than half of the people didn't listen to this song! Electric tempo of Zedd+ Selena's sizzling voice makes this song a perfection in itself! THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST SONG OF 2015. Deserves to be at least in the Top 5.

God! I love this song. Selena is awesome in it!

This song always reminds me to forgive myself and be happy...the video of the song is equally amazing

Love this song. Selena gomez is in it that' why.

I agree, very good and decent song

111 Same Old Love - Selena Gomez Same Old Love - Selena Gomez

One of the best song from her album, the melody and the lyrics are really catchy

Basically the same tune as her other songs.. I love Selena but I wish she would make different songs in her new album Revial not like her old songs.

I actually enjoy this song..She's naked to shed her DISNEY image...Like we have never seen that before (Britney, Christina, Miley)...it's so original...

This song is really annoying and dull. - madoog

112 You Want a Battle? (Here's a War) - Bullet for My Valentine You Want a Battle? (Here's a War) - Bullet for My Valentine

I used to love this and here's a funny story about it.
So I do this thing where I look at the lyrics and then I download it, not looking at how the song sounds. So I downloaded it, and had my phone on shuffle and I didn't know what it was when it first started and when the scream happened I was scared. - AnonymousChick

113 Talking Body - Tove Lo Talking Body - Tove Lo

This might just be the ballsiest song I've ever seen hit the charts. And you know what? I don't mind listen to this on and on and on. It is just too damn catchy to hate!

Horrible song and horrible lyrics

This entire album was mind- boggling! It drives me mad that this is 99. It should be in the top ten. Much better song then most of the crap that was released.

This song is abysmal. Just abysmal. - SwagFlicks

He has always been able to rap he is one of the best and his lyrics aren't stupid like other rapper his songs always had a meaning to share to the world love Eminem.

This should be higher come on everybody VOTE FOR Eminem

My 3rd favorite posse cut behind 1train and Mercy but I thought this songs, and Shady XV was 2014 - JakeNasty92

116 Revolt - Muse Revolt - Muse
117 New Americana - Halsey New Americana - Halsey

Overly dramatic and pretentious. Pretends to be some important deep song but actually means nothing. Production is awful. The vocal melody is one of the most annoying things I've ever heard, I hate her voice. And the worst part is the dreadful lyrics and rhyming.

This song is unoriginal and horrible. Her voice is a bit annoying and unpleasant. Her voice is like sour/sweet candy. Her voice is like an animated T.V. show character's voice. This song sounds like Coldplay's Hymn For The Weekend. I don't know why she references Biggie and Nirvana. They added a to American to make the song title look more appealing. *scoffs* What the heck is this? - madoog

The rhyming sucks and it's just taking it self way too seriously

So bad it's amazing. 4/5 - ProPanda

This is closest thing we got to rock besides muse.

120 Phenomenal - Eminem Phenomenal - Eminem

This may be his least inspired work to date, as well as among his worst. If I were to make a top 20 worst Eminem songs, this would be somewhere in there. - WonkeyDude98

This song and me myself and I are 2 good and underrated songs of 2015, hear both of them and you won't regret anything

Eh. Not his best work. But far from his worst. - SwagFlicks
