81 Alive - Sia

Sure, it sounds powerful, but the vocals is too much. I instantly disliked this song when I first heard it. This song is annoying, and she yells at the top of her lungs. Gosh! - madoog

Another masterpiece by Sia!

Sia you are very unique with your music - spodermanfan1000

I hate this song! in this song Sia sounds like she's giving birth! - Iamcool

82 Drag Me Down - One Direction

Somebody wants to kill me because I hate One direction. That's stupid.

I honestly am a huge hater of One Direction. I once even made an anti One Direction rap. But this song absolutely fantastic and catchy and I can't help listening to it numerous times. I don't want to like this song because of the band that made it but I do. My friends all hate One Direction as well but they all like this song. It should be 4th.

Somebody says that if I don't like this song I haven't heard it. Yes I've heard it, and I don't like it. Very generic. Can you let people have opinions for once? God, people these days.

Yeah, sorry, hate this. Too generic, stereotypical, cliched, and overproducd. 0/5 - ProPanda

83 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.

This is one of my favorite 21 pilots song. I love how they express their feelings here. And credits to you who said, 'I'm cursing my government for not picking this for number 1'.

84 One Last Time - Ariana Grande

I don't even understand why it's not even top 20, even though it's top 5 for me but anyway. It's one of the best songs Ariana has ever released. Yes, I know it is a song about Ariana expressing her regrets for being unfaithful to her boyfriend, so what? A lot of singers have unfaithful to their boyfriend/girlfriend haven't they? Let's not be so curious about what the song is about cause this song is really amazing. It is one of the few radio singles she has released which manage to showcase perfectly her powerful vocals. Even though the track is pop but at the same time a quite melancholically beautiful track that has a little bit of a dreamy feel to it. I love Ariana, and love this song and it's definitely one of the best songs of the year

This is an amazing song, I think the only reason it's not higher is because it was released earlier in 2015 so it's not as fresh in people's minds.

This is the one of good song by Ariana beside Why try.

I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH

85 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.

86 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

87 Talking Body - Tove Lo

This might just be the ballsiest song I've ever seen hit the charts. And you know what? I don't mind listen to this on and on and on. It is just too damn catchy to hate!

Horrible song and horrible lyrics

This entire album was mind- boggling! It drives me mad that this is 99. It should be in the top ten. Much better song then most of the crap that was released.

Bad lyrics. "We f*** for life, on and on and on." Um, no thanks. - Catacorn

88 Dreams - Beck

This is closest thing we got to rock besides muse.

This song lit AF! So fire I'm literally typing this while my house is on fire. Song so fire it should be sued for damaging property.

89 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

Sounds like Taylor Swift

90 I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times) - Jamie XX

The only song I didn't LOVE from Jamie XX's In Color. Because Young Thug. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

I'm surprised this barely got any radio. This was one of my favorite tracks of the year thanks to Jamie's production and Thugger sounding like he's having so much fun in the booth

4/5: Young Thug keeps this song, and the album from being the number 1 EDM album of the year - ProPanda

91 Piece by Piece - Kelly Clarkson
92 Invincible - Kelly Clarkson

This song deserves more recognition. This should have been the hit Fight Song was. This is inspirational music done right. For those who want to make girl power songs, please take notes from this song.

Love this song. I love the beat, the vocals, everything. I definitely recommend the song to anybody who has taste!

I totally agree this SHOULD have been the hit Fight Song was- better vocals, better video, better singer!

To be honest, I do not remember this song. It did not get the recognition and air play that Fight Song did. Fight Song was ok, but I feel radio overplayed it and now I never want to hear that song again.

93 Mortal Man - Kendrick Lamar

This is one of the best closers I've heard in years. The first part is a brutal, serious rap questioning fan loyalty, whether or not they'll stick by Kendrick if he does something they don't agree with. It's a question that there's no real right answer to. The second part brings the poem that's been running throughout the album together. It details his rise to fame, his guilt about what he had to do to get there, and his desire to help others on that path. All themes of previous songs on the album. This leads into a fictional interview with Tupac Shakur, who details his own struggle, along with the struggles of the black community (poverty, hunger, etc.). I can't explain it in a list comment. Anyways, the song closes with an amazing poem about him and his fans, who might just want to use him because of his fame and influence. However, these fans aren't completely to blame, as they're all part of a broken, restrictive system designed to drain the life out of you. Kendrick proposes ...more - Zach808

96 How Much a Dollar Cost - Kendrick Lamar

Like many have said, Barack Obama called this his favourite song of 2015. He has good tastes. Thanks Obama

Damn, maybe not as successfully commercially but so meaningful - KapiteinKaas

This was Obama's favorite song of 2015. While I don't exactly think that, it is pretty close. - WonkeyDude98

97 I Want You to Know - Zedd

SERIOUSLY?! 85! What a shame! I bet more than half of the people didn't listen to this song! Electric tempo of Zedd+ Selena's sizzling voice makes this song a perfection in itself! THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST SONG OF 2015. Deserves to be at least in the Top 5.

God! I love this song. Selena is awesome in it!

This song always reminds me to forgive myself and be happy...the video of the song is equally amazing

Love this song. Selena gomez is in it that' why.

98 Same Old Love - Selena Gomez

One of the best song from her album, the melody and the lyrics are really catchy

Basically the same tune as her other songs.. I love Selena but I wish she would make different songs in her new album Revial not like her old songs.

I actually enjoy this song..She's naked to shed her DISNEY image...Like we have never seen that before (Britney, Christina, Miley)...it's so original...

This song is really annoying and dull. - madoog
