Best Songs of 2016Ark-M
The Contenders: Page 2
This is one of the most insufferable things to hit the radio this year. I hear it come on and my ears start ringing just to block out the noise. "Hotline Bling" at least had a catchy beat even with the nonsense lyrics. This has absolutely nothing going for it. I can't even decipher what he's saying and I'd rather not find out. I honestly hate this song more than "Let It Go" and I didn't think that was possible. 0/5 - theOpinionatedOne
One of Drake's best to be honest. He actually has some life in his voice and the beat is pretty good.
This isn't an OK song but it was a bit dull.
Besides it doesn't F swerve to be #1 for 10 bloody weeks! If a #1 hit song that should have stayed long it's Panda. It was only there for 2 weeks. Honestly why is Panda bad? It's great.
Yea and besides if anyone here thinks the #1 hits aren't so excellent this year I kinda agree. Some were good like Panda and Black Beatles and some were bad like Closer and maybe Love Yourself.
But this song is kinda boring now so it doesn't deserve a 5/5 or 4/5
I would give it a 3/5 - AlphaQ
Kill me already.0/10 - milmcgirlV 20 Comments
This one is the Chainsmokers best song ever.
It's undeniable, this song is played on almost radio station I know and its one of the songs that put the Chainsmokers on the map. That's my opinion.
It was made in 2015 but it's still awesome! - pcn
Take it slow but this song's not typical, it's way better than the other songs. - lovefrombadlandsV 6 Comments
This song sounds somewhat bland. - madoog
This coming from the person who liked Needed Me, Anaconda, and other terrible mainstream songs. - Hotheart123
I love this song but this is totally not what song I expected sorry but I kinda like it yeah
I wasn't really a fan when I first heard it, but it grew on me. - JustAnotherAccount
I usually like Katy Perry's songs. This one to me sounds boring. - lovefrombadlandsV 20 Comments
Amazing and inspirational song.
It's Kanye west what do any of us expect from him
Yo this is #4. Can we get this like a lot higher? - ProPanda
I love how Kanye switched it up this time with gospel vibes and threw in killer vocals and Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin... hot damn Kanye did a fantastic job with this track.
6/5 - Mcgillacuddy
Just further shows that people are too narrow minded to listen to anything that isn't on the radio every 5 seconds. This song sounds exactly like every other pop song right now: slow, boring, and attempting to be insightful. And is it just me or do the lyrics in this song make no sense? Nobody's looking for a wife at age 11. This isn't Game of Thrones. And I know people like to argue that "this song is sad" and "he went through hard times," but honestly, it's a bit old at this point. I get he had a hard life, but it's the same damn story we've heard 200 times from tons of other singers. If you like this song, awesome. You've done something I couldn't do to save my life. I'm just saying that this song doesn't really offer anything new, and that it definitely isn't the best song of 2016. - AngryByrd
How am I the only one who finds this song atrocious? This song makes me want to go to Lukas, and slap him in the face. This song is just bad. The lyrics, which are not about his father (seriously look up the lyrics, it only mentions his father like 3 times) are bad. The instrumentation is decent but boring. Also Lukas sounds whiny and pretentious. This song does make want to cry...at how lousy pop music has become.
No, Lots of people on the top tens hate it now because it's not wise to smoke and drink at 11 - AlphaQ
This is just boring and the lyrics are STUPID. Drinking and smoking at 11 is WRONG Lukas. I never did that stuff and I'm 14. I didn't Think this was the best and thought It was one of the worst. 1/5. It's just plain bad - AlphaQ
Once, when I was 7 years old, this song wasn't a real thing yet, so I was happy. - lovefrombadlandsV 82 Comments
This and so many other non top 40 songs on this list are actually very excellent. In some cases fresh and damn good as some one has stated below. Does anyone really listen to the samples and then go find the entire songs and listen. Most are great and I end up liking them better than the mainstream top 40 stuff. Do some justice and listen to other songs you might find one you like that's not overheard.
You wanna know what's worse. This could have been a Billboard Hit, it barely missed the hot 100 with a #6 peak on Bubbling Under. Why didn't it chart? Cause the week this was closest, DRAKE decided to have his garbage album take over the charts blocking better songs like Colors, Pity Party, and this from being hits. - ProPanda
Considering chance the rapper just released a new album, I'm really hoping this song will get the boost it needs to reach the hot 100 because this song is amazing. One of the best of the year. The best part is the chorus. 9/10. Please America, let this be a hit instead of crap like NO, Work from home, and 7 years.
Compared to this, David Bowie's song is carpV 16 Comments
Why does the music industry continue to pump out garbage? - madoog
I just heard this yesterday, and I'VE BEEN SICK OF IT SINCE YESTERDAY. - WonkeyDude98
Best think Major Lazer has ever made - JoDBoss
Seriously I'm in love with this song its wow! 👍V 3 Comments
I have absolutely no idea why this site hates this song so much. It's completely fantastic. - WonkeyDude98
5/5: Great production and deep story - ProPanda
HUH? I expected this to be a lot higher. Not like drunk high you know what I'm talking bout. Well #774 is kinda low since Everyone I know likes this song. I also like it as well and it was brought out pretty well. Not tryna be bias to The Weeknd but his songs are always great. 5/5 - AlphaQ
I love it so much, good beat and lyrics so 10/10! - lovefrombadlandsV 7 Comments
"Come unto me, and you will feel perfection" - This song's lyric sums up the awesomeness of this song! Listen to this one, and you will hear just how good it is. Anyways, this should be back on the top 10, being number 6 or 5.
The ULTIMATE song of the year!
It's a good song it just doesn't get as much recognition because it's not "mainstream" friendly.
I didn't like Metallica's new album that much (I've got something special planned for that), but this is where I have to disagree with SwagFlicks, because this was easily the best song here. - WonkeyDude98V 5 Comments
Why on earth the song isn't on the Top 20? I mean, it has an awesome beat, great vocals and good lyrics. Why people are paying her dust? It should be higher. Same with Dangerous Woman (song)
I can't stop listening to this song. The melody, the vocals, it's so catchy. Certainly the best song of the year so far
This song is really good. I like it
There is no reason why this song should NOT be any higher. The chorus, the synths, the bridge, and the backing vocals are the best I’ve ever heard.V 16 Comments
Only at 100? This is the best song I've heard all year! Really catchy chorus, energetic vocals, punchy beat, and an all-around happy and joyful vibe! Why Work and One Dance are above this, I don't know.
How does one dislike this? - ProPanda
This is a good song...9/10? That seems about right. - lovefrombadlands
This song got the best music
This is a pretty great song, honestly. Zara Larsson has this endless charm that combines with her amazing voice to make anything she makes instantly enjoyable. Compared to her other big song Never Forget You, however, this is pretty lacking. The beat is a mix of catchy and relaxing. It's comfortable is where I'm getting at. Lyrically, this song is pretty weak. You can pretty much call this song verse-less, which makes it feel like the same phrase repeated over and over. The writing seems to detail a young love that crashed and burned, but the final few lines seem to frame it like a love-and-leave scenario. It's like a more bitter version of Carly Rae Jepsen's work. Still solid, I give it a 4/5, but Never Forget You is much better. - WonkeyDude98
I thought that she was a reggae black singer when I first heard this! Despite whatever race she is, she is an AMAZING singer and has a perfect voice. She's a pop girl, only better! - toptenqueen
Can't stand this song. I hated Never Forget You and this is just as bad. What's good about this song? All it really is just Zara Larsson trying to be both Rihanna and Alessia Cara and she does not sound good at all on this song. I didn't care about the lyrics but what I have heard was awful, and the production is worse than Never Forget You and some of the worst I have heard in the apocalypse of pop music that is 2016. If anyone has not heard this son, I would not recommend it.
Catchy - LunalaV 6 Comments
Even though I liked Emperor's New Clothes a lot, it wasn't near my favorite from the album. This song is. The production of this song is amazing, and Brendon just sells it full force. Never before has a song about no longer being single sounded so rich yet fun. - Zach808
This song is DEFINITELY the best one all year. Its Brendon Urie at his best and amazing. This song should be at number one, and all the other ones on this album should be on here too!
While not my favorite from the album (Crazy = Genius all the way), it's still good and much better than stuff like NO, or 7 years, etc.
I really don't like panic at the disco, but this is a nice song. I would listen to this song, 6/10. - lovefrombadlandsV 17 Comments
I love Troye Sivan! - Catacorn
If this makes it into the top 20, I will get a tattoo on my a$$ and it will forever be known as the Blue Neighbourhood. Y'all have my word on this! Is my embarrassment worth voting for this song? No. Because it wouldn't embarrass me a bit. Butt still (see what I did there? ), VOTE FOR THIS SONG! - theOpinionatedOne
For a final single from these guys, this is actually pretty good. Has a great nostalgic feel to it. - Zach808
I love one direction but at the end when they do a hug I always cry harry is so cute/hot
I love one direction but louis tomlinson is most handsomest
Eww. Sorry, I do not like this song. Bad beat, annoying, terrible voices. 0/10. - lovefrombadlandsV 8 Comments
With this song being a catchy pop song with Joe Jonas on vocals and me being the outspoken metalhead that I am, you'd assume I'd hate this song and would have only bad things to say about it. I figured that would be the case, but the honest truth is, I actually like this song. It's catchy, it has a nice beat, and the chorus is not that bad. My only two problems with this song are that A: It's got the dumbest title known to man and B: the lyrics are less than pleasing, but honestly, it's not that bad. It's certainly better than that terrible song Nick Jonas put out last year. - AngryByrd
I'll give it a measly 6/10. It has nothing to do with cake! - Catacorn
This is from 2015, and it's somewhat crappy. - Powerfulgirl10
Overplayedness ruined this song for me. - lovefrombadlandsV 9 Comments
Seeing this in the top 30 makes me happy. - ProPanda
All the hype around Lady Gaga's newest song gave me excitement and it was worth it.
All the so called Little Monsters who were bashing on the new songs must not heard You and I. Lady Gaga is reforming to a clean side in her own growing to same to singers such as Kesha, Katy Perry and Beyonce (in a sort of way, during the Sasha Fierce area of her side). The guitar riff is weakly acclaimed in a 3/5 area in my point. Gaga's vocals are that supposed to be so great. Let us now support her for Joanne. - ArigatoKawaii
Love it... It's the best
Nice comeback Lady Gaga, better than most other songs of 2016... - Moorefamval
So underrated!V 7 Comments
