Best Songs of 2015-2016


The Top Ten

1 Blackstar - David Bowie

10 minutes of Bowie being Bowie. Giving us what he truly is. A beautiful tune, great lyrics, and a great music video to accompany it. 10/10 - naFrovivuS

It's a great but too long for its own good. If it had stopped around 5 minutes, it would've probably been better.

The Best song of the year RIP David

R.I.P David Bowie

2 7 Years - Lukas Graham

Horrible. Just bad to the absolute maximum. This song is not a tribute to his father, just this Lukas guy tooting his own horn for 3 minutes. Listen to the lyrics in full and you'll agree. The singer of this band is whiny and he sounds like he's singing through a tube. The instrumentation is okay, but kind of sleep-inducing. 3/10.

Doesn't deserve that much love. It's just another failed attempt at an emotional story. 3/100 - naFrovivuS

Such a boring tune. No effort to even make a decent storyline in the lyrics. And the instrumental is so nauseatingly tiring. 1/5 - naFrovivuS

This is one of my favorite songs from 2015 to 2016. This best is the song I've ever heard. My favorite thing about this song is that it talks about Lukas life. Once I was 7 years old my momma told me is one of my favorite verse in the song. I promise you, if you listen to this song every single day, then this song is gonna make your life a whole lot better. I love this song.

It's amazing. I love the rythym. But it's weird that sings that when he was 11 his dad told him go find a wife so you won't be lonely.

3 U - Kendrick Lamar

This album is so good even one of the worst songs on the album, u, is pretty decent. This album was amazing, I recommend The Blacker The Berry. That song kicks ass.

FINALLY, Lukas Graham isn't #1. - naFrovivuS

I can't be the only one who thought u was the best song on To Pimp A Butterfly... - WonkeyDude98

So happy for Kendrick

4 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

Justin Beiber has always been the epitome of crappy pop music, but when making this album, he really stepped up and showed that he can be taken seriously.

People always have something negative to say about him but he is a great singer and he proved so with this song.

You spelled bieber wrong kid

I love Justin I love this song and I love the lyrics its really good catchy everything

5 Cheap Thrills - Sia

How is this number 11?! It should top the list! Good lyrics, crazy beat and creative music video!

I like the Capital remix, like: -Turn Capital on-

I didn't like Chandelier, but after Cheap Thrils I kinda turned into a Sia fan - Organ

6 Heavydirtysoul - Twenty One Pilots

Didn't even come out this year, but I won't complain.

I love this song. - RalphBob

7 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

A lot of people I know hate Twenty-One Pilots. I actually really enjoy their music. - Dawscr

Such a boring tune. No effort to make good lyrics, lost in its own meaning, and the INSTRUMENTAL is so bland. 1/5 - naFrovivuS

Not their best work, but at least it's really laid back. - Swellow

I like this song its perfect - Lunala

8 Astoria - Marianas Trench

I like the song.


9 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

Ugh this song is good but then it has a really sucky bass drop. They turned a beautiful song into a disastrous trap song >:(

The lyrics make zero sense

I love this Song. Honestly - Organ

10 Cut the Cord - Shinedown


The Contenders

11 Hello - Adele

Adele is such a talented singer because she makes you feel the pain she's feeling even if you've never felt like that before. It doesn't lose it's effect no matter how many times you've heard it. It is both a tragic song about loss, memories, pain, and regrets as well as a song about a woman who is apologizing for all the heartache she caused him and asking for his forgiveness, not his love. She understands that he's moved on with his life and she doesn't blame him. It is a composition of first love, break up, regret,longing, time and forgiveness. Thank you, Adele.

Why isn't this up higher? It was literary the most sung song of 2015

Start a campaign to get this to #1!

Its cool - Lunala

12 Coming Home, Pt. II - Jackie Evancho

Wonder tribute to our nations heroes. Jackie has great respect of our troops both present and past very unusual for a 15 year old, but Jackie Evancho is unique. Most beautiful voice in the world.

Personally I don't like her voice. Not my style. I can understand why others would like her voice. But music is personal and she is not my taste. So nobody is #1 really since music is personal just so you remember that and not to offend with some opinions that "no else has a voice this perfect". Remember nothing is perfect and one's view on close to perfect is also personal. Remember music tastes are very personal and then one's taste is no better than another's taste.

At 16 Jackie has more understanding of music and lyric interpretation than artist 2 or 3 times her age. Thank you Jackie for honoring our troops with this video.

The harmony in this song is heavenly. - BobG

13 Gold - Imagine Dragons

Gold is really a cool song. Really cool.

One word Catchy

Imagine Dragons is the best band(out of the ones that started out in or after 00's) around right now.Every other band sucka.

First comes a blessing of all that you've dreamed
But then comes the curses of diamonds and rings
Only at first did it have its appeal
But now you can't tell the false from the real

14 I Took a Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner

I took a pill in Ibiza to show avichi I was cool and when I finally got older felt ten years older but it was something to do

15 Hands to Myself - Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is a perfect as you can get. She is one of the best singers. Selena Gomez is so amazing, what makes her fantastic is she can sing a type of genre and every one of her songs will sound out of this world. This song should be on this list because everyone loves it. Whether they are singing in the shower or jamming with their friends in the car. If you play this song anywhere people will instantly start singing. So, why not show how awesome this song is and rank this song to the top. Everyone. lets show people what a song is.

Yeah, not a fan. Selena Gomez is the worst. Her only good song is Same Old Love, and that is a terrible song. Sabrina Carpenter is so much better.

I just love this song. She is a truly amazing singer. She is way better than Ariana Grande.

I LOVE Selena Gomez a she has every right to be on this list. The song itself is rocking awesome,and she looks superb in the video.Not that I was suprised.You rock Selenita!

16 Pity Party - Melanie Martinez
17 Sometimes - Ariana Grande
18 Work - Rihanna

This song is literally the most repetitive song in the world. all it says is "work" and "dirt". I feel like the only reason it got popular is because it's Rihanna

My family loves it so much!

People can not stop sing this song!

Just like it

19 Through Your Eyes - Britt Nicole
20 Cake by the Ocean - DNCE

Generic one hit wonder. Big whoop. - SoldierOfFortune

I'd die before I'd listen to this. - AnonymousChick
