The Contenders: Page 13

Can't believe this beautiful thrash song is so low down the list - Metalmaniakkk

242 Still Falling for You - Ellie Goulding
243 Brotherhood of the Snake - Testament
244 Piece by Piece (Idol Version) - Kelly Clarkson

245 Zai, Ye Bu Jian - Stefanie Sun
246 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

247 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

248 I Exhale - Underworld
249 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

250 Child's Play - Drake

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

251 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

252 Blood Money - Dope
253 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

254 Dissociation - The Dillinger Escape Plan
255 Soldiers of Love - Lighthouse X
256 The Emperor - Megadeth
257 Fragile - Kygo & Labrinth
258 Inércia - Scalene
259 Fast Car - Tobtok V 1 Comment
260 Secret Love Song - Little Mix

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