61 Tear in My Heart - Twenty One Pilots

I love this song as much as I like a lot of there other songs. I think this one is good, but Car Radio is my personal favorite.

This is a really good pop-rock song. It is different from other things that twenty one pilots has released, but that is what makes it special and interesting to me. Is it my favorite? No, but I will direct you to some stuff from their Vessel album. However, this song deserves to be in the top 10 (either it or stressed out), just to show how far this band has come this year. My smol beans have made it so far, and this song is proof. I-/

I don't understand why right now this is ranked at only number 12. It's such a unique song and was played almost everywhere. I absolutely love it. The music video gave the song even more meaning and was simply displayed so artistically. His wife was even featured in the music video, which was just brilliant. The song is just overall amazing.

Of all the songs from blurryface, I'm glad this one is all the way up here. It really is a good song, even if that one line (you know which one) is cringe to it's max. 4/5 - ProPanda

62 GDFR - Flo Rida

Unfortunately this song falls in the same mold as Right Round. Both songs are incredible for what they were meant for, but they were ripped off of songs (to be honest, as songs I prefer Right Round to Like A Record and prefer GDFR to Talk Dirty), and thus any respect I may have for them is lost. - WonkeyDude98

Not going to lie, this song is actually fairly good.

I still don't get how this ripped of Talk Dirty? Neither sounds remotely the same. - ProPanda

Guilty pleasure - ProPanda

63 New York City - The Chainsmokers

This is the epitome of the word "majestic". The piano-based buildup, the atmospheric effect, the great melody, the soft vocals, the lyrics about needing time and peace to cope with a lost lover, and THAT DROP. One of the greatest drops ever. 6/5, as much as I rave over Roses and Don't Let Me Down, this blows them both out of the water. - WonkeyDude98

I still consider this one of the best songs of all time. That drop. THAT DROP. It gives me chills. From Victoria Zaro's emotional performance to the deep lyrics, this is amazing from top to bottom. I will endure a thousand "Bloodstream"s, "Closer"s, and "All We Know"s just for one more "New York City". - Spark_Of_Life

Lets get this in the top 25 people! - ProPanda

Put
this
at
the
top
ten.

Ok, the day I heard this song, it was the day after I wrote a song with the lyrics "i know I'll never have what I really want" and this song has the lyrics "to know what you want, know you'll never truly have it" I connected to this song so much in 2015. I love it. 11/10. - lovefrombadlands

64 Earned It - The Weeknd

The Weekend is awesome!

Earned It is a great song and quite relaxing in a way. His voice is perfect for this song. 2015 was a great year for The Weeknd. - madoog

This song is my shhh. This is perfect for when your significant other deserve a reward because they "Earned It"

One of my favorite song...

Stop hatin on songs people

66 I Bet My Life - Imagine Dragons

Nowhere near my favorite Imagine Dragons song, as compared to Bleeding Out and even Gold, its sound is kinda bland and the hyperboles could have been less clumsy. But still, it's incredibly powerful and encompasses just how remorseful Dan is towards his parents. - WonkeyDude98

I really hate how all of the great bands (e.g. P! ATD, FOB, Imagine Dragons, Breaking Benjamin, etc.) are at the lowest numbers

67 Confident - Demi Lovato

A self-empowerment anthem that actually has powerful instrumentals and an actual vocal presence to it? This is everything Fight Song should have been. I don't usually even like Demi Lovato, but this song is great.

I love demi lovato. Her voice rocks it is so powerful. She also went through a lot in her past so she is a great idol to a lot of people. This song is also very powerful and meaningful- love it.

This song is great I love Demi's sound and the emotion in her songs and how she puts out music she loves and that she knows others will like and relate to!

Much better version of Demi Lovato

68 Hey Mama - David Guetta

Nicki Minaj Sung Most of it Afrojack sung the chorus no idea what David Guetta did - RockStarr

You are so wrong. Bebe Rexha actually did the chorus of this song.

Yeah, bebe rexha who makes this song sounds better - GevIcsandrie

Catchy, but bleh

69 Cake by the Ocean - Dnce

I can not stand this song, and here are some reasons why:

1. It's about sex. I see third graders chanting it, like it's the best song ever, when they don't even know what it's actually about. Why is it so popular?

2. It's one of those terrible, summer songs that was most definitely ripped off. I thought for a few seconds this was This Summers gonna hurt, then the melody comes in. I think I died. Again.

3. Overplayed. I actually stopped listening to my local radio station and rely on my phones music for good music, since the radio has nothing to offer these days besides terrible songs.

4. Yes, I know I'm ranting, but I can't help it. It just went on the radio AGAIN! (Even though I just mentioned up above I don't listen to the radio anymore )

5. I-I-I-I-I-I keep on hoping we'll cake by the ocean. (I keep on hoping we'll have sex on the beach)

I hate this song. I wanted to like it but the lyrics are even worse than Cheerleader. - WonkeyDude98

Okay, let me be more specific. This song is a disaster on almost all grounds. It's the worst Uptown Funk song that could have been made. More than anything, this is two ripoffs in one. This is an Uptown Funk ripoff (very blatantly), and a ripoff of This Summer's Gonna Hurt by Maroon 5.

While I do prefer this over This Summer's Gonna Hurt, it's not by much. The same runny synths that ruined TSGH, and the same feeling of a horrible scorching summer. As for Uptown Funk, the bassline is the same and the percussion is the same. In fact, the first time I heard this I thought it WAS Uptown Funk, until Joe Jonas' horrid voice came on.

Joe Jonas is so earnest and light that you almost think he's talking about actual baked goods...until the "you're delicious" line. Also, he can only barely hit those high notes on the chorus. It's painful. Half-star/5, THE CAKE IS A LIE! (Now that I've made that joke, it's time to rethink my life) - WonkeyDude98

This song was overplayed, but it is catchy - slimshady901

70 7 Years - Lukas Graham

Great song except for the lyrics. No symbolism, no metaphor, just a man saying what age he is. Very dull, and it seems like something a kid could write.

I just listened to it today 4/12/16. And I gotta say, 7 Years is such a sad, beautiful song. Explains every moment in life. Please listen to this song, I promise you, that you will not regret it. - Catacorn

It's a song about life. Like, the whole life. Every other song seems to be about just one moment in it.

71 I - Kendrick Lamar

Seriously? 185? This is one of the best messages I've heard from a song, and it's THIS low? People got some awful tastes in music today.

The fact that Ayo, Honey I'm Good and Hit The Quan are above this makes me question life.

Would be extremely high on my list if...1. u wasn't better. 2. I didn't already put it on 2014's. - WonkeyDude98

72 She Used to Be Mine - Sara Bareilles
73 All I Ask - Adele
74 Worth It - Fifth Harmony

Fifth harmony definitely has talent but this song doesn't show their talent at all. Generic lyrics, admittedly catchy tune but nothing special about their vocals in this song. I've definitely heard them sing a lot better than this and this is honestly disappointing

You are not worth it

Fifth Harmony is decent, but this is DEFINITELY their worst. Where are their other songs?!

If you make garbage like this, you are not worth it. - AnonymousChick

75 Bad Blood - Taylor Swift

I cannot stand this song. Radio overplayed this song and I automatically turn the station whenever it is playing. I have never heard the entire song because it irritates me so much. I think this is one of Taylor's weaker songs and I hated the video. I prefer her simpler songs and low budget productions. There was too much and I don't feel that is a good fit for Taylor. She's all about girl power but the song is dissing another female. Too much hypocrisy and her squad makes me nauseous.

I know how she feel when she was betrayed by her best friend, Katy Perry because I also feel the same when my friends betray me almost everyday. If I was her, I would write Bad Blood too. I don't criticize her when she released this song and Bad Blood also one of my favorite songs on 1989 but I feel disappointed with the verse lyrics its said Did you have to ruined what was shiny and now all rusted. I think that line doesn't fit with Bad Blood. - BeaM456

As a Taylor Swift fan and someone who thinks lowly of Katy Perry, this song blows hard. Kendrick Lamar, a rapper I also like, is pretty much frosting on the cake here, and it doesn't even go with the "rap diss" power. The beat is also non-existent, it tries to be an anthem but fails. - Swellow

Probably her worst pop song �" and 1989 is one of the best albums of 2014, and my third favorite Taylor Swift album. The only reason I don't absolutely hate it is because King Kendrick's verses are kinda nice.

76 Renegades - X Ambassadors

Should be in at least top 30... Too good of a song to be this low on the list!

Because some people actually have fairly good hearing so that is why its not in the top 25 DUH!

This is one of the best songs I have ever heard! Why is it not top 25?

All right whos atroll I mean its top 10 worthy

77 Don't Be So Hard On Yourself - Jess Glynne

Best vocal of the year, nearly Adele standard!

I found this song on a music app on my tablet. This song is truly amazing, and this is the first song of hers that I like. - madoog

Got a good message Lovely song

Its not like I listen to her everyday,I only listen to her songs when they're on T.V..And yet I can tell how good she is

78 Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy & Bebe Rexha

G Eazy is underrated and so as this song, I haven't heard it a SINGLE TIME on a radio yet, so if you search up the song you won't regret it, very good song, 5/5

G-Eazy is like one's foot. It's there, but you never notice it. The only difference is that feet are actually important. - WonkeyDude98

I didn't know g Eazy was white until I saw the music video and this song is better than hello or see you again or watch me

Annoying song and overused song title / I immediately stopped listening. - madoog

79 Death or Glory - Iron Maiden

Such a talented and legendary band at 36?!?! It's so disappointing that metal is hardly appreciated. Most of the top ten in this list are fake pop songs...

How can anyone dislike metal in favor of these crappy songs in the top 10? World is doomed! - MetalGurja

Welcome back to your rightful place, iron maiden. That is the top of the charts.

I like how EVERY single one of these comments has to disrespect pop music, when the top 20 is actually mostly rock and underground rap. Boes to show how toxic vocally parading metalheads. - WonkeyDude98

80 Ghosttown - Madonna

Fantastic ballad from Madonna. She should make more songs like this

This entire album is stunning! It's a shame that radio did not play her because this album- Rebel Heart- is a a masterpiece. Ghost town is such a beautiful song and video.

This needs to be higher on the list, she needs to make a lot more songs like Ghosttown. - Catacorn

I don't know. - madoog
