Best EDM Songs of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Faded - Alan Walker

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...

I'm faded... so lost

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 Illenum remix was amazing

3 Say Goodbye (Headhunterz Edit) - Crystal Lake
4 No Matter Where We Are - Manse
5 Hollywood - Afrojack, Hardwell
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 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Vote it fastt...!

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

thumbs UPP

8 Working for It - ZHU x Skrillex x THEY

Yeah skrillex the best dj of the world

BEST SONG OF 2016 - venomouskillingmachine

9 Never Giving Up - Tom Swoon
10 Temple - Baauer

The Contenders

11 Sakura - R3hab
12 Saved - Deadmau5

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

13 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
