Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 13

241 Zai, Ye Bu Jian - Stefanie Sun
242 Juju on Dat Beat - Zay Hilfiger

I love this song! It's catchy and fun to dance to. When my friend is grumpy I start singing this song and she is happy.

MeH. It's alright. 2/5. It's better than Watch Me, Hit the Quan and Crank That but I give it a 2/5 because it is unoriginal and lazy. - AlphaQ

This makes my ears bleed. 🙃 - ExplosivePanther

243 Chunky - Bruno Mars

If 24k Magic was some really bland attempt to recreate Uptown Funk, then this is a bland Treasure. Although this was much more cringe worthy. 1/5 - ProPanda

This has to be one of the most fun songs of this year. Sure the lyrics are cheesy, but Bruno has the personality to sell it. Also, this is 24K Magic Pt. 2. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

244 I Exhale - Underworld
245 Daddy Lessons - Beyoncé

This is somehow better and more country than most songs on country radio this year. How did that even happen? - Zach808

I like how Me Too is above this... - ProPanda

246 So Alive - Goo Goo Dolls

Ok for you I wish we can have the 90s artists back stereotypes back, here you go. Great beat, the singer has actually gotten better after 30 years and the lyrics are heartfelt with the pop-rock piano. Check the album out people - ProPanda

247 Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd

I like this. - madoog

248 Child's Play - Drake

This song inarguably has class discrimination. That is a disgraceful thing in a hip hop song or any song.

249 When the Bassline Drops - Craig David

Should be much higher! Great production, Craig David's performance and even Big Narstie has a good verse. One of this year's best songs! 5/5

250 Blood Money - Dope
251 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5

Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar are both better than this. What's with Kendrick and underwhelming verses lately. Most of my issues come down in the production, which...another tropical-themed song! This is musically like a better Hideaway, and Maroon 5 are better than sticking to trends. It's not bad, just aggravatingly underwhelming. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

I like the tropical beats and Adam's laid-back vocals, but the chorus is repetitive and it's just lacking something that I can't quite put my finger on. A comfortable 7.5/10. - Spark_Of_Life

Nice verse from Kendrick, Adam sounds alright bar the prechorus, the lyrics are good. Still this is less Maroon 5 and more Kygo ft. Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar 4.5/5 - ProPanda

252 Telepathy - Christina Aguilera

Top 100...that's goals for this song. It's a surprisingly effective take on disco music in quite the traditional sense, which I usually dislike. (Remember "Treasure" and "Suit & Tie"? I'd rather forget those! ) If musicians are insistent upon reviving disco, they should use this song as the model. It's the perfect blend of that classic orchestral arrangement and funk-inspired bassline but putting a modern spin on the synths and beats. Blending classic and modern is something Christina excels at and this song is no exception.
Plus...THOSE VOCALS! We haven't heard that Christina in a long time and I want her to stick around! 5/5 - theOpinionatedOne

253 Dissociation - The Dillinger Escape Plan
254 Soldiers of Love - Lighthouse X
255 Fragile - Kygo & Labrinth
256 Inércia - Scalene
257 Beautiful Pain - Andy Black

Every song Andy makes it really good. - AnonymousChick

258 Fast Car - Tobtok V 1 Comment
259 Secret Love Song - Little Mix

Meaningful lyrics. Nice music video.
Nice song overall. Deserves the first spot!

260 Berlin Got Blurry - Parquet Courts
