Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 19

361 Go Flex - Post Malone Go Flex - Post Malone

I like the combination of the acoustic elements and the trap production in one song. Sure the lyrics make little to no sense, but you know, it's still a good song for me. I give this 4/5. - SelfDestruct


The combination of acoustic and trap elements sound like an intriguing idea, but the balance is too focused on the trap elements, rendering that limp guitar useless. Post Malone's lazy drawal definitely fits, but it doesn't make the song remotely fun for me. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

362 Angels - Chance the Rapper Angels - Chance the Rapper
363 So Alive - Goo Goo Dolls 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

364 Better - Meghan Trainor Better - Meghan Trainor

Meghan. You can do better than this. - AlphaQ

366 I Got the Keys - DJ Khaled I Got the Keys - DJ Khaled

I kinda looked over DJ Khaled's Major Key album entirely, I don't think I should have because it's a minor wreck. Sure, we had like three good songs on there, but it's telling that there are two songs on that album worse than this. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Not bad / I neither like nor dislike this song. This became a hit because of Jay Z's verse. - madoog

WIth good bars from Jay Z, a repetitve but catchy hook from Future, a cool beat to listen to with great production, but DJ Khaled's annoying shouting as usual, I give this a 4.5/5 (would have been 5/5 if DJ Khaled didn't shout in the song). - SelfDestruct

367 Prayers / Triangles - Deftones Prayers / Triangles - Deftones
368 Paranoia - A Day to Remember Paranoia - A Day to Remember
369 Running with Giants - Thousand Foot Krutch Running with Giants - Thousand Foot Krutch
370 Atlantis - Bridgit Mendler Atlantis - Bridgit Mendler
371 Bad Habits - Kerser
372 Flexicution - Logic Flexicution - Logic
373 False Alarm - Matoma & Becky Hill False Alarm - Matoma & Becky Hill

Bland EDM with an annoying drop and completely repetitive lyrics/melody and annoying synths blaring. I'll give it 1/5, only for the somewhat relaxed vibe - ProPanda

This song is awful. Plain awful. The lyrics are annoying so ad the tune. Screw this song. 0/5. - AlphaQ

374 Happy Hurts - Icon for Hire Happy Hurts - Icon for Hire

I'm surprised to see an Icon for Hire song here. I love the band so much and this song is very relatable to me. - AnonymousChick

375 Kill for You - Skylar Grey Kill for You - Skylar Grey

A masterpiece, it's kinda boring but the harsh cries of Grey on the chorus, the amazing lyrics about love, the impressive vocal talent, the dark beat, it's all perfect. Not to mention Em's verse on the track alone is already better than Phenomenal and Kings Never Die combined (and I liked the latter...)

By the way, that visitor comment was me - ProPanda

376 Record Year - Eric Church Record Year - Eric Church
377 Lost on You - LP Lost on You - LP V 1 Comment
378 Distant Sky - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Distant Sky - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
379 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5 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
