Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Never Forget You - Zara Larsson Never Forget You - Zara Larsson

Now THIS is incredible. Zara Larsson's voice, as I said, is amazing. What's surprising is how MNEK, the guest on this, is just as great. He sounds like Jason DeRĂ¼lo. Something about his wobbly, melisma-heavy voice just clicks. The beat is incredible. It's restrained in the best ways, and is very captivating. The buildup is interesting, and the drop is pretty much perfect. The lyrics, while sloppy, are cute and surprisingly not that big of obstacles in the path of enjoying this song. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

182 L.A Girlz - Weezer L.A Girlz - Weezer

This song deserves, and demands to be in the top ten. The powerful verses and Chorus really shows an amazing throwback to the 90s. It's one of Weezers best songs in my opinion. Also, that solo... Rivers is one talented songwriter, it's just an amazing solo, one of his bests. This is one amazing Ballad of a song, and it's very powerful and catchy, and just SO good. The rest of the album is also just superb. I really hope this song gets higher soon, it deserves it.

Definitely deserves to be in the top ten - caseyk1218

183 Feel Invincible - Skillet Feel Invincible - Skillet

This completely blows. If these guys are called Skillet, then why aren't they a flash in the pan? 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

184 Shelter - Porter Madison, Madeon
185 Famous - Kanye West

Do we really have to have a Taylor Swift porn video?

This song is awful. I do not like Famous. - madoog

186 Kiss It Better - Rihanna Kiss It Better - Rihanna

It's an absolute crime that 'Kiss It Better' is so low. You all should be ashamed of yourselves!

187 Written In Blood - Beyond the Black
188 Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis V 1 Comment
189 Square Hammer - Ghost Square Hammer - Ghost
190 Up&Up - Coldplay Up&Up - Coldplay
191 Forever - Electus

Described by a friend of mine as like Roxy Music on steroids. Well, it is fantastic. - PositronWildhawk

192 Low Life - Future Low Life - Future

This song is a bit dull but it is really good. For a lot of people (because I know a lot of people hate Future for some reason) this song will be excellent for you. The Weeknd does a good job as usual but Future's job is surprising because he's usually dull but I really enjoyed this song more than I expected. Good job to the both of you. Especially Future. 5/5 - AlphaQ

Now I dislike Future with a passion, but I cannot deny how awesome this it. The production is dark and controlled, unlike most Future songs, and also unlike most Future songs he handles it well. The Weeknd handles the hook well as well. He is meant for dark beats like this. Yeah, sure the lyrics are weird but it dosen't matter becuase the rest of the song is amazing. Good job. 5/5 - ProPanda

This dark song is brilliant. The Weeknd's vocals are sick. Keep it up, Future. - madoog

193 If It Ain't Love - Jason Derulo If It Ain't Love - Jason Derulo

No. I do not like the way this song sounds. - madoog

195 Tears - Clean Bandit Tears - Clean Bandit

Oh my god...146? There is nothing in this song that could be better! Amazing vocals, great lyrics, one of the best build ups to the hook EVER and the talented composition of clean bandit. Why oh why is this not higher I feel real sad
