Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Cry Baby - Melanie Martinez

Melanie is very interesting, combining childish imagery for really dark and deep lyrical content. I knew from The Voice she was unique but Cry Baby is the dawn of a new beginning for Melanie

Why can't they ever play Melanie on the radio? If the radio people are concerned about the explicit language, they should just play the clean version and take off the other garbage full of swears

It's quite true. This should be popular, but not too popular. I hate it when the basic kids like the music I like. - AnonymousChick

I agree with the person who said how Melanie should be played on the radio. - Catacorn

122Sorry Not Sorry - Bryson TillerV2 Comments
123You Are My Sunshine - Morgane and Chris Stapleton
124Girl Loves Me - David Bowie

It's a great song, definitely. But top 20? I think it shouldn't be that high, especially above I Feel It Coming and Nikes. - Satire

125Up&Up - Coldplay
126A Different World - Korn
127Eat - Young Ma
128Conquer or Die! - Megadeth
129I 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

137Fast 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.

138Youth - 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

139L.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

140Cold Water - Major Lazer

Why does the music industry continue to pump out garbage? - madoog
