Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 15

281 One Call Away - Charlie Puth

I feel like this should be higher up on the list. Personally, I felt that this was the best song of 2016, and it gets better every time I listen to it!

This is a duet with Lil Wayne. He compared himself to Superman.

The guy who made Marvin Gaye tells how great he is. Talentless hack. - WonkeyDude98

Charlie's blessed with the best voice I've ever heard. I can eye a future legend. Legend Puth! - Ark-M

282 Back to Me - Marian Hill & Lauren Jauregui

Better than anything Camila has touched. 6/5 - ProPanda

283 The Final Thing on My Mind - The Pineapple Thief
284 All the Other Girls - Cavego

Better dance song than most of them lately. At least this makes sense!

Better than top 40 with no overplay. Great summer it will be!

Wow, this summers gonna groove. Tasty song!

285 Cypher 4 - BTS
286 No Problem - Chance the Rapper Feat. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz

Chance got straight up disrespected being put at 283. One of my favorite songs of all time on one of my favorite albums of all time.

Best song to date

This is barely above PPAP, are you serious?

Great song - madoog

287 Handclap - Fitz and the Tantrums
288 The Great Divide - Rebecca Black

This actually isn't that bad. Sure, the drop sucks, and Rebecca sounds a little nasal, but this is miles better than anything she's released before. It's sad, longing, and actually might make up for Friday. - Spark_Of_Life

Her vocal is totally fine and maybe much better than Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez which are quite popular but have poor low voice. - BeaM456

This song is amazing, thanks Rebecca for improving so much!

Dancing on the line... of the great divide...

289 Cleopatra - The Lumineers
290 I'm Not Right - XY&O

Oh this sample does not do this chill pop tune justice. What a fresh sounding group in general!

Cool, Summers just arrived with this chill tune!

291 Spirits - The Strumbellas

THE most catchy song of the year. It's so cheerful-sounding as well! - jagman264

292 Still Breathing - Green Day

Billie's voice never ages I swear, 9/5. Nice lyrics, excellent beat - ProPanda

For me this is the best song of 2016. - zxm

It's beautiful. Stunning 8/5 - AnonymousChick

Honestly...this isn't good. At all. The (over)production and beats are so stiff, generic, and lacking in punch that it makes the blaring instrumentation and Armstrong's grungy vocal tone come off less powerful and more claustrophobic and grating. It's like crawling through a system of air vents with no way out. And the lyrics...this is just Wake Me Up When September Ends again but with less detail and writing that overuses similes so much that it ends up losing the song's focus (you're LIKE a son that was raised without a father? you're LIKE a junkie tying off for the last time? ).

It's not bad (if I'm being generous), but it's easily one of the worst on the album and not one that I really like. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

293 Piece by Piece - Kelly Clarkson

The Idol version was released this year but this was a single last year. - theOpinionatedOne


This should be way higher than it is. Maaaybe Number 1? Vote for Weeknd all you want, but this is heartbreaking.

294 Ain't Your Mama - Jennifer Lopez

No wonder why this song like Meghan Trainor's work because she actually the one who write this song. - BeaM456

Love this

295 Pen Pineapple Apple Pen - Pontus Rasmusson

Worse than the original! - Neonco31

I hate this song. - Powerfulgirl10

Where is the original? -Vestalis

NOOO die - AnonymousChick

296 Revolution Radio - Green Day
297 Attention - The Weeknd

Worst Thing On Starboy, But Mediocre - VideoGamefan5

By far the worst song on Starboy. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

MeH. Not really. I think this is easily the weakest song from Starboy and it's abo-nope Acquainted is weaker. I'd say this is about the same level as The Hills...maybe weaker. 2.5/5 - AlphaQ

298 Not Today (The Building is On Fire) - The Gregory Brothers & Michelle Dobyne

If you haven't seen it, look it up, it will make your day! - TheEvilNuggetCookie

299 Candyman - Zedd

Zedd teams up with Grey and Aloe Blacc for a future bass remake of that song from Willy Wonka for m&ms 75th anniversry? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

300 Be Alright - Ariana Grande
