Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Team - Iggy Azalea Team - Iggy Azalea

No. This is a monstrosity made by a rapper who is at this point a lost cause. - WonkeyDude98

Not a fan of Iggy in general. However, I will never understand the hate for this song. At least it's several leagues above anything Jacob Sartorious and Mark Thomas have offered.

Won't Iggy Azalea just give up now? Nobody has cared about her since fall 2014.

122 New Romantics - Taylor Swift New 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!

123 I Got the Keys - DJ Khaled I Got the Keys - DJ Khaled

I kinda looked over DJ Khaled's Major Key album entirely, I don't think I should have because it's a minor wreck. Sure, we had like three good songs on there, but it's telling that there are two songs on that album worse than this. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Not bad / I neither like nor dislike this song. This became a hit because of Jay Z's verse. - madoog

WIth good bars from Jay Z, a repetitve but catchy hook from Future, a cool beat to listen to with great production, but DJ Khaled's annoying shouting as usual, I give this a 4.5/5 (would have been 5/5 if DJ Khaled didn't shout in the song). - SelfDestruct

125 I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975 I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975

The title sends chills down my spine. - WonkeyDude98

Ironically, the album doesn't have that kind of tone that the title has. - Tristan1975R5

126 Modern Soul - James Blake
127 Wow - Beck Wow - Beck
128 Self Control - Frank Ocean Self Control - Frank Ocean
129 Ivy - Frank Ocean Ivy - Frank Ocean
130 Force of Hand - Dark Tranquillity Force of Hand - Dark Tranquillity
131 The Threat is Real - Megadeth

This, fatal illusion, dystopia, foriegn policy, and bullet to the brain are the some of Megadeth's greatest. - Brobusky

132 Fast Car - Jonas Blue ft. Dakota Fast Car - Jonas Blue ft. Dakota

The original for me is better. I usually don't like covers and quite picky about them. This one is good and I can enjoy both.

133 Youth - Troye Sivan Youth - Troye Sivan

This feels like it shouldn't be as perfect as it is, and yet is still flawed. Granted, I like it. Troye has a lot of real charisma and personality behind his whispery vocals, the lyrics have a lot of sentiment behind them, and the beat is interesting.

But like, that drop...4/5 - WonkeyDude98

134 2 Phones - Kevin Gates 2 Phones - Kevin Gates

Are you joking? This song is awful! - WonkeyDude98

138 Mercy - Shawn Mendes Mercy - Shawn Mendes

I hated that album, but I'll have some Mercy on this. 4/5 - ProPanda

Whaa? Why is this so LOW?!?! I mean. Illuminate is amazing. He's just 18 years and he's doing so well. He definitely needs praise for that

139 Faded - Alan Walker Faded - Alan Walker

Why this song is on here but alone is not

This song was, for me, a breath of fresh air from songs like Pillowtalk and Girls Like. It's got meaningful lyrics, a pretty good singer and AMAZING instrumental. :-)

I thought I disliked Cheap Thrills but where do I begin with this monstrosity?

140 Tiimmy Turner - Desiigner Tiimmy Turner - Desiigner

This song is awesome! I've never heard anything like this from Desiigner or Future. I think the sound Desiigner makes are cool and I like it because I'm able to tell that it's Desiigner and not Future cause sometimes I can't tell the difference. I liked Panda and this is a masterpiece. 6/5 - AlphaQ

This song is dark and great. It has an amazing shift at the end. - madoog

I was pretty mixed on Panda, but I'm shocked at how fantastic this is. Talk about chills.

How is Metallica above this? This is better than anything Metallica will ever put out!
