Best EDM Songs of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Faded - Alan Walker

Best song ever! I'm faded

Yeah, Alan Walker! The vocals and production mix quite well, and the orchestral version is amazing as well.

Should be higher! - InfernoTopTenners

Didn't expect this guy to show up here, but hey, he's one of the best out there! This is the wrong album cover though... this is the restrung version for China or wherever. But the song itself is great! Sorry Chainsmokers, but you're going to have to step up your game a lot to beat this solo artist...

2 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

It is trap not edm

Well technically, trap is under the umbrella genre of EDM, so it counts.

Best song ever

The song is saved because of Daya. The Chainsmokers suck. Anyway I don't even know if it's EDM.

3 Say Goodbye (Headhunterz Edit) - Crystal Lake
4 No Matter Where We Are - Manse
5 Temple - Baauer
6 Candyman - Zedd & Aloe Blacc

This sucks. This is generic pop music. Not the Zed I used to know: (Stay The Night, Clarity, Beautiful Now)

I agree to this. This song is really good and is always welcoming to hear. - Nick-brick8

7 Never Giving Up - Tom Swoon
8 Working for It - ZHU x Skrillex x THEY

Yeah skrillex the best dj of the world

BEST SONG OF 2016 - venomouskillingmachine

9 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Best of 2016

Vote it fastt...!

The most popular EDM song of 2016, with over 10 weeks atop the BBHot100.

thumbs UPP

10 Sakura - R3hab

The Contenders

11 Hollywood - Afrojack, Hardwell
12 Saved - Deadmau5

Some of the mau5's career-best works, going back to his progressive revolution. - PositronWildhawk

13 Kundalini - Headhunterz & Skytech
14 Universe - Don Diablo
15 Inside Out - The Chainsmokers

This was so amazing.

16 Like a Bitch - Zomboy

Stop acting like a bitch, put your hands up!

17 Now That I've Found You - Martin Garrix

Number 11!? Really! A bunch of people have probably never heard this song, but if you have watched a recent 7up commercial you have heard at least about 30 seconds of it. The Chainsmokers aren't even real EDM artists as most of their songs have been hits in the mainstream. Please vote this masterpiece up to Number One and show this website what true EDM is!

Like any Martin Garrix song, great till the drop. 4.5/5 - ProPanda


Awesome song and diappointed by its rank
people don't know what EDM is

18 VIPs - Skrillex
19 Daylight (With You) - Yves V vs Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman
20 Waiting - Oliver Heldens
21 Together - Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko


22 Cantina Boys - Baauer
23 Fragile - Kygo & Labrinth

I love how Labrinth's vocals sound fragile as well; plus Kygo's production.

24 Shelter - Porter Robinson & Madeon

Why isn't this at least in the top 10?

25 Alone - Marshmello

I LOVE MARSHMELLO! Can't live without his music!

Only Marshmello song on here so I had to vote for it

26 Make a Move - Skrillex Remix
27 Novell - Nicky Romero
28 In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix

This track is pure bliss. Martin decided to switch it up for this one from his usual progressive to more of a future bass sounds and it works for an emotional love song like this. Bebe Rexha also is a powerhouse behind the mic and this song rules on all levels

29 Pitch Black - Vicetone
30 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

This isn't really EDM. Great song though. - Atham

Awesome song

31 I Took a Pill in Ibiza - Mike Posner

Deserves to be in top ten

32 Last Dance - Steve Angello

It's Nice - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

This is a song of revolution. That's all I think of when I hear this track.
