Best Songs of 2016

Ark-M

The Top Ten

1 Starboy - The Weeknd

I just love how Abel dominated pop music with his previous record, and now with the whole world on him he goes back to his original style. I don't mean musically, because going from grunge R&B to pop to electronic is a huge switch-up, I mean his lyricism. BBTM had good lyrics and all, but it didn't offer nearly as much as this track does. Rhymes are on point, flow is on point, cleverness is on point, and that cocaine metaphor in the pre-chorus pulled it off more than CFMF wishes it did. Props to Daft Punk, too, for an awesome production. In general, Starboy is a big laugh in the face to everyone who tests him or tries to end him, because no matter if you're a hater or someone who adores him, you make him more famous. Look what you done! 8/10, amazing song, not roughly as beautiful as his trilogy mixtapes are, yet still worthy of a listen, exceptionally if you're a Weeknd fan like me. - yaygiants16

I feel sad because of the Weeknd's hair. Anyway, great song.

The Weeknd is always good with these songs. Screw anyone who says he sucks - Mcgillacuddy

AMAZING I have never heard this song ever before. And I really like and enjoy it to.

2 Blackstar - David Bowie

Just watch the video. David clearly knew death was coming, and he left us with a dark message about the enslavement of humankind. - PositronWildhawk

Probably the best of the year. The distinct production that mixes electronica, jazz, rock and orchestral elements is a one of a kind and sounds extremely unique, but it's Bowie who truly sells it. The lyrics about death and fame are well written and more poignant after his unfortunate passing, and he gives one of his best and most emotive vocal performances in his history, creating something that is both very sombre and very haunting. One of the best and most unique tracks in some time, this is arguably one of Bowie's finest and definitely one of 2016's finest too. RIP Bowie. - Mrveteran

Wow, this song is amazing. So heavy and haunting. David Bowie could not have given us a better parting gift. Check out the whole album. - Zach808

This songs is totally one of David bowie's best songs yet. So heavy and haunting and the distinct production that mixes all sorts of genres such as rock, electronica, jazz and orchestral elements is totally one of a kind and sounds awesome and unique. The lyrics about his death and fame are well written, emotional and more poignant after his unfortunate passing out and is remarkably one of his best and most emotional vocal performances in history of all time. It also left us a dark message about the enslavement of humankind. RIP. David Bowie-2016 :'(

3 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

I'm not a fanboy but I heard this song outta my crazy excitement bout Suicide Squad. And I'm not at all disappointed. This is cracking track worth falling for. - Ark-M

For me this song is worth much more than first place, because it is inspiring, energizing, positive and all the good a person remembered! So thank Tyler Joseph and Josh Dunn song that was headed for the trailer which is recreated song for "Suicide Squad"! Twenty One Pilot - Heathens remember this song!

Good song. Twenty One Pilots were one of the few mainstream pop bands I could stomach this year, and this song is a good reason as to why. The mostly minimalist and slightly subtle approach of the verses definitely create a strong atmosphere and provide a good build up to an entertaining chorus, and on the whole is very memorable. - Mrveteran

Sick and who doesn't agree doesn't know about good music

4 24k Magic - Bruno Mars

I like how Bruno is switching it up this time. This reminds me very much of Daft Punk with the funk, synths, and vocoders and it's an all around fun song. Better than Uptown Funk in my opinion

With this perfect slice of Uptown Funk-lite chillness, which honestly has better synths than Uptown Funk, color me intrigued for the new album, don't screw it up. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

This song is audio perfection, I don't care what people say, literally evrything about this song is amazing. The beat brings back those 80s vibes, bruno is an utter joy to listen too, and the chorus is so catchy I find myself humming it hours later - kardinaleb

Totally an improvement from Uptown Funk. The beat of 24K Magic is cooler than Uptown Funk, even though it's kind of old-fashioned. But I guess Bruno has his unique ways which actually make most of his songs better.

5 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

I love this song, but for some reason while I was listening to it I was reading a book, so I always associate the book with the song.

I'm still waiting for the new metallica album to blow this list away. Speaking of which where is Hardwired on this list?

6/5: An emotional song, with a great everything - ProPanda

The beatles song of the same name is better. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

6 Sucker for Pain - Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons

Lil Wayne sounds the best he has in years. Also, Logic, everybody. Finally, it took forever for this guy to get on the hot 100.

Lil Wayne kills it in this song, his verse is not profane for a soundtrack song, and doesn't distance himself from his roots by staying with that Hip-Hop style. Wayne absolutely delivered an astonishing performance in this song, nobody can doubt that, & Dan Reynolds vocal performance was great, alongside the acts like TY$ & Logic who both also had great verses. The only exception I make with this song is how garbage Wiz Khalifa's verse was.

The Suicide squad album was amazing, as matter of fact some may say the soundtrack was the best part about the whole movie, and in my opinion it was. However this song is one of my favorites from the album (beside Eminem) all there parts were well done, but in my opinion I could do without Lil Wayne's part, but it is indeed some of his better work. all in all I say this is the best song of whatever genre it is (because I have no idea what to group it in) and in my review, I'd give it 4.5 out of 5

I like this song. It's AWESOME!

7 Ride - Twenty One Pilots

So many songs that are popular right now sound very similar to one another. I think people need to branch out and improve lyrics, as well as change musical and melodic trends. This song isn't one I love, but I think Twenty One Pilots doesn't fit themselves into the box this current time in music forces artists to go into. This song sounds different while still maintaining popularity, whether it be sung by ten-year-olds or teenagers.

Good song, though it's not from 2016. I don't think people realize how many songs that are currently popular took quite a while to do so, and were actually released last year. I mean, this song is only just getting poplular, and it was released like May of 2015, well over a year ago. - uofmfan1221

The same thing happened with Stressed Out, which came out in April 2015 and only started becoming popular around February/March 2016 from what I can remember. - allamassal

Memorized the rap part id die for you that's easy to say we have a list of people that we would take I can't type it all though

This song is amazing. I love how people are listening to 21 Pilots more, now. Amazing band, 10/10

8 Hardwired - Metallica

Fantastic. Admittedly, it does come up very short in comparison to their earlier stuff, but on its own, this is a brilliant metal song. The intense production helps to create some of the best thrash metal the music scene has seen in years, and the vocals are very good. Despite some of the cringey lyrics, this is a great tune and one of the best of the year. It's also nice to know Metallica were one of the few established bands not to suck this year. - Mrveteran

NEEDS TO BE #1 IMMEDIATELY! Way better than stupid timberlake and twenty one pilots.

Timberlake is awesome even though can't the feeling isn't the best - MrQuaz680

I've been pretty cynical towards Metallica (I blame that entirely on this site's terrible userbase), but between this and Moth Into Flame, I'm really looking forward to their next album, because I really like both of these songs. - WonkeyDude98

3 minutes of pure pain and destruction, will rattle you, one of betsllicas best thrash songs - lilrocketman

9 Daydreaming - Radiohead

1 million times better than Lukas Graham.

I'm not sure why I don't like this song. Maybe it has something to do with the weird reversed vocals that do actually nothing for the song? Maybe it's the fact that for as much as Radiohead and Thom Yorke would like to convey a rollercoaster of emotions the song never builds to...anything? Actually, probably both of those. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

Better than Lukas Graham? I should hope so, considering that this is the band that put out OK Computer. The song's good, but they've done way better. - Zach808

Very depressing song. From beginning until the end just straight up sadness.

10 Cheap Thrills - Sia

"Who knew SIA doing mindless pop garbage could work so well? "

- the ignorant me of the past

I've started listening to more Sean Paul, who has a guest verse on this. I once (paraphrasing) described this as a happy disaster, but then I realized that this is the perfect throwback hit. Move over, NO by Meghan Trainor, we have an actual 2000s pop song on our hands.

The beat is based around one melody that is very light and bubbly, which fits with Sean Paul's voice, and SIA actually sounds good over it (mind you she's the same person who did the heavy-hitting Chandelier and Elastic Heart). SIA's harmonizations, while they have nothing on, say, early Destiny's Child, they still fit within the song, and Sean Paul's verse is definitely complementing that. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

This song is amazing. Should be higher. - TheAlbinoWolf

Sia writing this song surprised me because I thought writers gonna do it instead of her but I stand corrected. 5/5 - Everything is perfect, the beat and the tempo is correct to fit in the song and also Sia's vocals are good enough to do a better pop song than Katy Perry. - Erinaliese

I love Cheap Thrills!

The Newcomers

? House of Memories - Panic! at the Disco
? WWE: Won't Let Go - CFO$

The Contenders

11 Jesus Alone - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

This has to be one of the best songs I have ever heard in my entire life! 11/10. - NiktheWiz

True, but with a song this good, I have to give it a score like that. - NiktheWiz

Nick cave still makes music? He hasn't been a movement since the 90's! Good thing to see the REAL goths are back (Please get the hell outta London, Twenty one pilots and fall out boy).

It's #11. Good song by 2010 standards.

"7 years" is above this. You've got to be joking. - DCfnaf

12 Just Like Fire - P!NK

One of my favorites, all in all an awesome song! Pink's voice is so powerful and everything is absolutely perfect. Although I'm not to keen on the Alice franchise, I'm in love with this song

What a perfect song for a good movie. Hopefully Alice Through The Looking Glass becomes a cult classic, but this song was a hit from the beginning. I wish they would release White Rabbit from Pink but damn was this such a fun song.

Worst song from this year. The pre chorus as well as the 'rap' or whatever you can call the bridge make it evident that pink is trying to sound cool and have a similar musical style to most modern day artists. Pink needs to accept that she isn't as popular as she once was. This song is an embarrassment to her. - jaspyboy

P! nk continues to shrink on me over time, but this has always been an awful song. 4/10 - DCfnaf

13 Girl Loves Me - David Bowie

It's a great song, definitely. But top 20? I think it shouldn't be that high, especially above I Feel It Coming and Nikes. - Satire

14 Sound of Silence - Disturbed

It may sound cool on first listen, but go an listen to the original and you'll see this cover is ridiculous, and not in a good way. The bombast with which this is sung is completely unnecessary. These are already some of the greatest lyrics ever written, so why sing it like you need to make it big and awesome when it achieves this by just being sung in a much more simple way? Simon and Garfunkel sing this in a soft and subtle way that is much more characteristic of the actual meaning of the song. In this cover, the songs best lyrics, "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls," are screamed at the top of the singer's lungs! This cover is the equivalent of walking up to someone and screaming "YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY EXPRESS YOUR THOUGHTS INSTEAD OF KEEPING QUIET AND WATCHING THE NEWS! ALSO READ THE GRAFFITI ON THE WALLS! " No subtly whatsoever. So yeah, this cover is god awful.

I think that a good cover should be something that sounds different from the original, because it conveys it in a new way. I thought their rendition was really solid, and overall quite powerful. - MasonOcker

Not one comment? Wow, people really don't know good music anymore. Even though this song is a cover, Disturbed sets a perfect mood for this song and backs it up with incredible monotone vocals. This is one of the best songs of 2016. Should be in the top ten.

I'm getting kind of sick of music acts manufactured to appeal to angsty teens who think what they listen to is "good" and "real" music. This is perhaps the worst song they've released that isn't original to them in any way, shape or form. Disturbed took what was already a great song complete with the perfect amount of atmosphere and emotion and made it collapse so that they could be able to express the "pain" they were feeling. I'll take the soft vocals sung in the original over the raspy unpleasant ones screamed in this cover. - SwagFlicks

Ok, I don't like the original. Then a horrible voice made it worse. The worst part? Everyone I know loves it! I hear it so much and it gets worse every time. Can I just skip whatever we're doing and go listen to Halsey and TOP? I don't like this song at all. 0/10.

15 Bang Bang - Green Day

Just missed it too. Vote this up if you want the return of quality in mainstream music.

I got addicted to this song, it is so good. Green Day came back with a very awesome song. This song is about the Orlando shooting.

How do I describe the lyrics? Oh yes, genius.

They actually covered the jessie j song? - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

16 Distant Sky - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
17 Don't Hurt Yourself - Beyonce

My favorite song on the album. Beyonce sounds so righteously pissed here, and she just lets loose like I've never heard her before. Also helping is Jack White's production. That organ and guitar gives the song a smoky, angry texture to it that I just love. Finally, that ending note is awesome. - Zach808

Beyonce sucks. She always did since the end of Destiny's Child. - keyson

The Lemonade album was fantastic though. If anything, this album is way better than anything she's done with Destiny's Child. - NiktheWiz

Beyonce Spears - GOAT

Why can't I hurt myself? Bitch telling me what to do.

18 All My Friends - Snakehips

This and so many other non top 40 songs on this list are actually very excellent. In some cases fresh and damn good as some one has stated below. Does anyone really listen to the samples and then go find the entire songs and listen. Most are great and I end up liking them better than the mainstream top 40 stuff. Do some justice and listen to other songs you might find one you like that's not overheard.

You wanna know what's worse. This could have been a Billboard Hit, it barely missed the hot 100 with a #6 peak on Bubbling Under. Why didn't it chart? Cause the week this was closest, DRAKE decided to have his garbage album take over the charts blocking better songs like Colors, Pity Party, and this from being hits. - ProPanda

Considering chance the rapper just released a new album, I'm really hoping this song will get the boost it needs to reach the hot 100 because this song is amazing. One of the best of the year. The best part is the chorus. 9/10. Please America, let this be a hit instead of crap like NO, Work from home, and 7 years.

Compared to this, David Bowie's song is carp

19 Ultralight Beam - Kanye West

Amazing and inspirational song.

It's Kanye west what do any of us expect from him

Yo this is #4. Can we get this like a lot higher? - ProPanda

I love how Kanye switched it up this time with gospel vibes and threw in killer vocals and Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin... hot damn Kanye did a fantastic job with this track.
6/5 - Mcgillacuddy

20 Ain't It Funny - Danny Brown

I was glad to see it here

21 Spit Out the Bone - Metallica

"Come unto me, and you will feel perfection" - This song's lyric sums up the awesomeness of this song! Listen to this one, and you will hear just how good it is. Anyways, this should be back on the top 10, being number 6 or 5.

The ULTIMATE song of the year!

It's a good song it just doesn't get as much recognition because it's not "mainstream" friendly.

Reminds me of original Metallica - lilrocketman

22 I Took a Pill in Ibiza - Mike Posner

This song just keeps getting better every time I listen to it. The original is horrible, just saying. But the SeeB remix is incredible. A dance remix that's more depressing, who knew? And also they took out the horrid third verse.

Apart from the mediocre drop, everything about this song is great. Mike Posner is relying more on his diaphragm to sing than before, the lyrics detailing how horrid it is being a one-hit wonder make me feel even more sorry for Posner than before (and I already felt bad for him; he's a loser), and he doesn't run over the line of respectability. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Would you believe there are some people that don't like this song? How could you not? - Spark_Of_Life

Ibiza is the best island ever... This song reminds me of it!

Mike used to suck, like really bad. Then he released this song, and it sounded whiney and boring. Then, SeeB remixed it, and it became godlike. Congrats to SeeB for making me enjoy a Mike Posner song. 8/10 - spiritofhiphop

23 Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

It's a decent song, but its overplayed so much. - Catacorn

This song got stuck in my head. I believe that this is going to be the song of the summer. - ethanmeinster

18?! Come on! Put this higher! This and "Just Like Fire" are the best of 2016!

Should be number 1

24 Death of a Bachelor - Panic! at the Disco

Even though I liked Emperor's New Clothes a lot, it wasn't near my favorite from the album. This song is. The production of this song is amazing, and Brendon just sells it full force. Never before has a song about no longer being single sounded so rich yet fun. - Zach808

This song is DEFINITELY the best one all year. Its Brendon Urie at his best and amazing. This song should be at number one, and all the other ones on this album should be on here too!

While not my favorite from the album (Crazy = Genius all the way), it's still good and much better than stuff like NO, or 7 years, etc.

I like this song, but really, this whole album is amazing. 10/10. - saturatedsunrise

25 Rise - Katy Perry

This song sounds somewhat bland. - madoog

This coming from the person who liked Needed Me, Anaconda, and other terrible mainstream songs. - Hotheart123

I love this song but this is totally not what song I expected sorry but I kinda like it yeah

I wasn't really a fan when I first heard it, but it grew on me. - JustAnotherAccount

I usually like Katy Perry's songs. This one to me sounds boring.

26 Roses - The Chainsmokers

This one is the Chainsmokers best song ever.

It's undeniable, this song is played on almost radio station I know and its one of the songs that put the Chainsmokers on the map. That's my opinion.

It was made in 2015 but it's still awesome! - pcn

Take it slow but this song's not typical, it's way better than the other songs.

27 Perfect Illusion - Lady Gaga

This song isn't a perfect illusion, it's a perfect comeback (if you don't count Mike Posner's I Took A Pill In Ibiza).

The guitar riff at the start tells you right away that this song is going to be amazing. Add that with the disco feel to this song, and we get a sound that is unique to 2016, which is full of sad ballads (that usually don't work).

And there is Lady Gaga's voice. I'll tell you now that this is possibly her second best vocal performance, only being beaten by Til It Happens To You. The power in her voice, along with the emotion and raw energy Gaga brings out is just pure, and thankfully, no autotune.

10/10

All the hype around Lady Gaga's newest song gave me excitement and it was worth it.
All the so called Little Monsters who were bashing on the new songs must not heard You and I. Lady Gaga is reforming to a clean side in her own growing to same to singers such as Kesha, Katy Perry and Beyonce (in a sort of way, during the Sasha Fierce area of her side). The guitar riff is weakly acclaimed in a 3/5 area in my point. Gaga's vocals are that supposed to be so great. Let us now support her for Joanne. - ArigatoKawaii

Love it... It's the best

So underrated!

28 The Sound - The 1975

Only at 100? This is the best song I've heard all year! Really catchy chorus, energetic vocals, punchy beat, and an all-around happy and joyful vibe! Why Work and One Dance are above this, I don't know.

How does one dislike this? - ProPanda

This is a good song...9/10? That seems about right.

This song got the best music

29 L.A Girlz - Weezer

This song deserves, and demands to be in the top ten. The powerful verses and Chorus really shows an amazing throwback to the 90s. It's one of Weezers best songs in my opinion. Also, that solo... Rivers is one talented songwriter, it's just an amazing solo, one of his bests. This is one amazing Ballad of a song, and it's very powerful and catchy, and just SO good. The rest of the album is also just superb. I really hope this song gets higher soon, it deserves it.

Definitely deserves to be in the top ten - caseyk1218

30 Burn the Witch - Radiohead

This is below such crap as panda and most other songs above it?

This song definitely deserves to be in the top 10. - ThePwoperMuser101

Not even the best one from this album- that has to go to daydreaming, but this song should still be above all the others above it - VaticanCameos

It's sad that it's only #30, it have great undescribable atmosphere

31 Panda - Desiigner

THIS SONG IS OVERUSED, REPETITIVE, AND ANNOYING! - Catacorn

This song is so dumb, it's actually kind of hilarious. Hilariously awful, if you will. It's so bad, I laugh every time I see some white kid dancing to it because my god, do they look so stupid.

Not sure what to think of this one. I mean, yeah, the backing vocals are obnoxious, Desiigner is basically diet Future, the lyrics are garbage, and the beat was literally bought of YouTube for $200, but something must be making people like it. It's probably that it's so horrifically awful that it must be seen to be believed. - WonkeyDude98

This song got me so hype

32 The Ballad of the Costa Concordia - Car Seat Headrest

Seeing this in the top 30 makes me happy. - ProPanda

33 Pillowtalk - Zayn

For a song that tries to be sexy, it couldn't be further. I've listened to enough Nine Inch Nails and Stabbing Westward to know what sexy sounds like, and this isn't it. First off Zayn, you're a former member of a talentless group of British pretty boys whose fan base consists entirely of brain-dead menstrual teenage girls. Trying to sound sexy is beyond you. Second, even if you were to ignore your history, this song is so generic it's not even funny. Maybe if you were to come out and say that this whole solo career is just a joke, and that you're trying to make fun of the abundance of other pop stars who have done the same thing as you, I would have tons of respect for you. But as it stands, you're a sellout, leaving a sellout band to make sellout songs under a sellout image. - AngryByrd

For a song about sex and the pillowtalk afterwards, this song is so gloriously over the top and ridiculous. The lyrics equate it to a warzone, and the chorus is so explosively cheesy, I just can't take it seriously. And yet, I love this song. Probably fits in "So bad it's good" territory. - Zach808

I don't know if anyone else would be able to pull this off. ZAYN has an incredibly massive voice with a lot of energy and power behind it, which lets him pull off the fact that he's comparing pillowtalk to a warzone. The beat is absolutely incredible, what with the jumpy barking synths, and the explosion on the chorus, it's so genuine that even ZAYN knows that he can't take this seriously. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Love you Zayn

34 Girl in Amber - Nick Cave
35 Dystopia - Megadeth Dystopia - Megadeth

I mean, Megadeth is a great band, but that's like almost 90% of this list. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The riff in the beginning is to die for, and so is the entire song. I am also so glad that metal finally where it belongs: the top of the charts. - LostDream258

Great song! Metal has managed to survive throughout the years despite never getting mainstream attention. This song is a testament to what Megadeth can do. - Bastiodon

Why on earth the song isn't on the Top 20? I mean, it has an awesome beat, great vocals and good lyrics. Why people are paying her dust? It should be higher. Same with Dangerous Woman (song)

I can't stop listening to this song. The melody, the vocals, it's so catchy. Certainly the best song of the year so far

This song is really good. I like it

45 One Dance - Drake

This is one of the most insufferable things to hit the radio this year. I hear it come on and my ears start ringing just to block out the noise. "Hotline Bling" at least had a catchy beat even with the nonsense lyrics. This has absolutely nothing going for it. I can't even decipher what he's saying and I'd rather not find out. I honestly hate this song more than "Let It Go" and I didn't think that was possible. 0/5 - theOpinionatedOne

One of Drake's best to be honest. He actually has some life in his voice and the beat is pretty good.

This isn't an OK song but it was a bit dull.

Besides it doesn't F swerve to be #1 for 10 bloody weeks! If a #1 hit song that should have stayed long it's Panda. It was only there for 2 weeks. Honestly why is Panda bad? It's great.

Yea and besides if anyone here thinks the #1 hits aren't so excellent this year I kinda agree. Some were good like Panda and Black Beatles and some were bad like Closer and maybe Love Yourself.

But this song is kinda boring now so it doesn't deserve a 5/5 or 4/5

I would give it a 3/5 - AlphaQ

Hotline Bling was good. I’d even call it amazing! But this? This is just trash. It’s just boring, and Drake doesn’t sound very good. 3/10. - saturatedsunrise

HUH? I expected this to be a lot higher. Not like drunk high you know what I'm talking bout. Well #774 is kinda low since Everyone I know likes this song. I also like it as well and it was brought out pretty well. Not tryna be bias to The Weeknd but his songs are always great. 5/5 - AlphaQ
