Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Death of a Bachelor - Panic! at the Disco

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.

This is honestly either my second or third favorite song. Brendon Urie's vocal range in this song is just astonishing.

62 Cranes in the Sky - Solange
63 Dreamers - MC Mario
64 Sing Me to Sleep - Alan Walker

I just listened to this song again on coffee shop, first thought I had is this man is having great taste of music since Alan Walker one of my favorites.

65 Insane - Korn
66 Freedom - Beyoncé

This song is beautiful - Moorefamval

How is this song not higher this song is absolutely BLESS! - ThePhenomenalOne

The album rocked, and this song was awesome. Good single choice, it topped the charts. - RestlessHeartGrenade

Amazing and underrated

68 Never Be Like You - Flume

This song is distinct and stunning. - madoog

Best song of 2016 by far!

69 Hands to Myself - Selena Gomez

0/5: I'm sorry I hate this. Selena vocals are seriously bothering me, the beat is weird, and those lyrics... - ProPanda

She doesn't sing, she whimpers, screams, then whimpers again.

I'm sorry, but I can't possibly vote for this ever. It has very bland lyrics, accompanied with robotic vocals. The message is just so Selena can completely rid of her innocent T.V. star self. And the instrumental? Just awful. 0/5 - naFrovivuS

This has to be number 1

And you say that because you've heard all the 57 songs above this disaster? I didn't think so - DH5435

70 6 Inch - Beyonce

I'm guessing she's not talking about a Subway - Hater

Is this about a Subway sandwich? - AlphaQ

Best Song Off Lemonade

71 The Threat is Real - Megadeth

This, fatal illusion, dystopia, foriegn policy, and bullet to the brain are the some of Megadeth's greatest. - Brobusky

72 Colors - Halsey

Stunning song, with an actual principle. Unlike many other songs of 2016.

Way better than songs like "I Don't Wanna Live Forever"

One of the best songs - urielectric

73 Present Tense - Radiohead

There are very few songs that I will call pop perfection. This is one of them. - SwagFlicks

74 Kiss It Better - Rihanna

It's an absolute crime that 'Kiss It Better' is so low. You all should be ashamed of yourselves!

75 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande

There is something about this song. - madoog

I'm allowed to prefer Disturbed and David Bowie over Ariana Grande and 5 Seconds of Summer. Yeah, I just said it.

Really only the chorus is good, but sadly, this year that's all its taking to be good.

Only the chorus? What about her vocals? The production and instrumentation? This song is so so good. - Johnny1248

Yes! Love that one! - SansTheComic

76 Solo (Reprise) - Frank Ocean
77 The Season / Carry Me - Anderson.Paak
78 In the Age of the Consecrated Vampire We All Get High - Rob Zombie
79 Tin Man - Miranda Lambert
80 Starving - Hailee Steinfeld

This song makes no sense. "I didn't know that I was starving til I tasted you"? What?

This song gave me faith back in modern music.

I...just have one question. WHO TOLD THIS ACTRESS SHE CAN SING? - theOpinionatedOne

I only like it because of the drop.Reminds me of chill trap
