63Love On the Brain - Rihanna

One of the best songs this year for sure. Her vocals are insane.

64Side to Side - Ariana Grande

*giggles* I really shouldn't love this song as much as I do! - WonkeyDude98

This song sucks, get it off the list.

Features Nicki Minaj, a.k.a. The Queen of Crap!
I'm sorry to say this but this is one of the cringiest songs I've seen.

70I Can't Give Everything Away - David Bowie

Rip David Bowie. Great song off a great album

71Good Grief - Bastille

This is one of the blandest songs I've ever heard. The marimba, the compressed snapping overwhelming it, Dan Smith's melodrama completely missing the mark of hiding grief of someone's death, the awkward repetition on the chorus, it's one of the best off that atrocious sophomore album, though that's not saying much. Kind of a shame when you consider what they did before. 1/5, entirely because of the somewhat upbeat nature of it. - WonkeyDude98

72Beauty from Pain - Electus
73New Romantics - Taylor Swift

Honestly, I think that this should have been a hit. Not as big as Wildest Dreams, because that would mean it would instantly wear out on me thanks to overplay. But seriously, this is a great pop song. Upbeat, not bitter, and pleasing. 4/5 - WonkeyDude98

Let's move on to something fresh and original already!

75Make It Up - Shura

77Don't Need You - Bullet for My Valentine
78Piece by Piece - Kelly Clarkson

The Idol version was released this year but this was a single last year. - theOpinionatedOne

79Moth Into Flame - Metallica

This song is just pure AWESOMENESS! Especially the "Sold your soul, built a higher wall" part, just catchy!

One of their best songs of all time! Spine tingling riffs, and great vocals
