The Contenders: Page 8

141 Wild Things - Alessia Cara Wild Things - Alessia Cara V 2 Comments
142 Yung God - Russ Yung God - Russ
143 Closer - The Chainsmokers Closer - The Chainsmokers

While one of their worst, the singers have chemistry, they lyrics are awkwardly perfect, beat's nice with the snaps, and it's really catchy. A solid 4.5/5 - ProPanda

This is so early (the song actually just came out today), but I'm telling you, this is the song to beat. This song is better than 'Roses', better than 'Don't Let Me Down', better than anything I've heard in a LONG TIME. Mark my words, this song will be HUGE. July 29th, 2016. - Cadetickle

Lyrics are trash, but this song is still really catchy to me... - Moorefamval

Lol, can't believe this is so low. It never reached the top 100 on this list - Hater

144 Brother, Can You Hear Me? - Dream Theater Brother, Can You Hear Me? - Dream Theater
145 Make It Up - Shura Make It Up - Shura

Shura should get more recognization. She's one of the best artists. I love her so much,I screamed when I saw this!

146 This Girl - Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners This Girl - Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners

Very powerful beat and it's just impossible to dislike. - redhawk766

149 Hollow - Tori Kelly Hollow - Tori Kelly
150 Working for It - Zhu Working for It - Zhu

Zhu is so underrated in the mainstream. He combines dark and chill electronica with heavy jazz influences. More people should know this guy's amazing music. Check out his album "Generationwhy" you won't regret it

152 And Dream of Sheep (Live) - Kate Bush And Dream of Sheep (Live) - Kate Bush

This song is from over 30 years ago, on Kate Bush's masterpiece album Hounds of Love. It was not a single then. This year she released a live album of her 2014 concert series, with this as the album's single. Though her voice has notably changed (whose wouldn't after 30 years? ), it retains all the emotion of the original and then some. I strongly encourage you give this and the original a listen and hopefully you can put aside trying to understand and absorb it from a logical standpoint and just FEEL the emotion of the song. - theOpinionatedOne

153 Secrets - The Weeknd Secrets - The Weeknd
154 Lying In State - Megadeth

Talk about heavy. Probably the heaviest song of 2016! And it rips right through you.

155 No - Meghan Trainor

THIS SONG is no! And so is her choreographer.

156 Boomerang - JoJo Siwa Boomerang - JoJo Siwa

I can hate JoJo Siwa all I want. Everyone needs to ignore his/her haters at points, however.

This song has a message which is igorne the haters. Awesome song!

157 Dark Necessities - Red Hot Chili Peppers Dark Necessities - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is almost not even debatable.

The fact that this is only 131 shows how braindead this generation is.

158 No More Parties In L.A - Kanye West
159 Wherever I Go - Onerepublic Wherever I Go - Onerepublic

Awesome. The piano is clean and new, the drums are pretty nice, pumping bass and weird cool guitars. Ryan's vocals can be a bit grating at first, but give it a chance, and you'll really like it. - ClimaxProductons

Not a fan. Compared to Counting Stars and Love Runs Out which I thoroughly loved, this is pretty bland and directionless. Not bad, but OneRepublic has done better. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

160 Fade - Kanye West Fade - Kanye West

This song could have been a bit better if the man's vocals "your love is fade / I feel it" were said once in the beginning of the song, immediately followed by Kanye's vocals. The beginning part could have been better. I like this song, though. This song is good. - madoog

Post Malone made something that didn't make me contemplate why I like music? Wow. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Glad to see this becoming something. One of my favorites off of Pablo. 5/5 - ProPanda

This song is actually really good. The rhythm is pretty chill. - Mcgillacuddy
