Best Songs of 2015


The Contenders: Page 14

261 Lazarus - David Bowie

A spectacular song from start to finish. Strong lyrics, strong jazz influence, a clear source of inspiration. R.I.P a true legend 1947-2016

Why is this not higher? Seriously? It's so emotional, and real, and deep.

I think it's not higher because it was released in 2016. But honestly yes this song is fantastic. - paganomd

262 I'm So Sorry - Imagine Dragons

As hard as I went off on Smoke + Mirrors, this is utterly fantastic. Dan's howls of remorse are incredibly emotional and those backing vocals are what dreams are made of. But the instrumentation wins it over. That fuzz-covered vicious crunch on the chorus atop the guitars is awesome and works in the arenas they are trying to tend to. - WonkeyDude98

Best song ever I I love when Dan Reynolds screams

In this song, he is confused about what he should believe in, and I think that this song really displays that quite well.

Lovin this song!

263 The Red and the Black - Iron Maiden

I'm surprised that the metal loving site has yet to add a song from the Book of Souls. This is my favorite from the album. It's a lot like Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but better. - Songsta41

298? Please. This song is WAY better than most of the bullcrap on this list, in my honest opinion. It should be at least somewhere in the top 100.

274 Repentless - Slayer

Even though "Repentless" is not a real word, This Slayer song is intense; just the way I like my Slayer

This song RAISED HELL for 2015! Anger amplified, brutal riffs, and brutal drums! This and "Flicka the Wrist" need to switch IMMEDIATELY. Hell-raising thrash vs Vine trash? Thrash! Thrash! Thrash!

275 The Shower - IU

Hey... this song really is so good, She is one of best Asian singers of all time, so she had a masterpiece comeback, Her album in 7 lists was number 1# I think this song is better than all songs of this list, I heard all top 100 billboard songs of this year, most of billboard songs was crap (It's a truth), now I want to pick up "The Shower" song from IU and put it in 1# - peyman_eun

See You Again from Wiz Khalifa is in 1# and this great ballad song is in 195#?! - peyman_eun

I love this ballad song, so underrated song, needs to be in 1# - peyman_eun

Must be so higher :(

Disturbed, Iron Maiden, and Slayer's 2015 albums kept metal kicking!

Come on people this was amazing. - SeanW

Disturbed is back

277 Amazing Day - Coldplay

This is by FAR my favorite song on the new Coldplay album, and makes it into my top ten favorite Coldplay songs, something very significant as I own almost all of their songs. This song is amazing. From the peaceful, atmospheric entrance, this song had me hooked. The instrumentals and create a very romantic setting. Chris Martin's voice is beautiful in the song, soft, powerful and touching. I love the feeling it's gotten over the years, something lacking today in mainstream music and even some of the other songs on the album. This song is so beautiful and romantic. The lyrics are simple but beautiful, and they flow perfectly. 11/10. - pandagirl

This song deserves a standing ovation because this is seriously one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. Yes. Better than See You Again and Hello, which are two of the most beloved songs of 2015. First of all Chris Martin's vocals in this song are FANTASTIC, especially near the ending of the song when he is singing the instrumental. Not only that, the instrumental (which is also the chorus) is so dang catchy that it's hard to get it out of your head. Why are songs such as Hit the Quan, Trap Queen, and Hotline Bling being played on the radio when masterpieces such as this can replace it? If you have the time, do me a favor and listen to this wonderful song. Yes, it's a slow song, but I would rather listen to that than "WATCH ME WHIP! WATCH ME NAE NAE! DO the STANKY LEG! HIT the QUAN! HIT the QUAN! I KNOW WHEN that HOTLINE BLING! NAAH NAH HONEY I'M GOOD! HEY WHAT'S UP HELLOOO! " Wow! We had a lot of bad songs this year!

I am seriously worried for 2016...

I just listened to this song a few minutes ago! Thank you for showing me this fantastic song, and I totally agree that this could replace some of the atrocious music playing on the radio right now. - Macy_Buehner

One of the best songs by Coldplay. This is actually the only song I liked in A Head Full of Dreams. Traditional Coldplay.

I don't like Adventure of a Lifetime much, but I gotta say, it did sound awesome in the Super Bowl Halftime show.

279 Fatal Illusion - Megadeth

One of the few songs from this time that deals with actual conflicts of the world

"Exterminate the problem, except it didn't work." I'm sorry, I love that line.
