Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 16

301 How Far I'll Go - Alessia Cara
302 Forever Now - Green Day
303 Junge Aus Der City - Fler
304 Marigold - Periphery
305 Utafumi (Radio Edit Ver.) - Dir En Grey
306 Gone with the Wind - Architects (UK)
307 Make Me Dead - Sim
308 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

The entire album is great. That's What I Like is just as good as 24K Magic. It should go up the list. - LightningBlade

This is a great song! Should be in the top 15! - micahisthebest


309 Back to Me - Marian Hill & Lauren Jauregui

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

310 The Final Thing on My Mind - The Pineapple Thief
311 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!

312 Cypher 4 - BTS
313 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

314 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

Why is that overrated song on #1? Looks like 2016 didn't have any good mainstream music for that stupid song to be #1. "The Great Divide" on the other hand, deserves to be at least in the top 20.

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

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

315 Cleopatra - The Lumineers
316 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!

317 Spirits - The Strumbellas

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

318 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

319 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.

320 Pen Pineapple Apple Pen - Pontus Rasmusson

Worse than the original! - Neonco31

I hate this song. - Powerfulgirl10

Where is the original? -Vestalis

NOOO die - AnonymousChick
