Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Scars to Your Beautiful - Alessia Cara

I thought Here was excellent but her vocals were a BIT weak in Here. In Scars to your Beautiful her voice was more powerful. Alessia Cara is very talented too. This is good and it has a good message but unlike All About That Bass it was excuted properly. I mean I'm alright with All About That Bass but it wasn't so well done but this on the other hand was VERY well done. 6/5 - AlphaQ

I wish more people would notice this song. It's so powerful, I love the message and everything.

Good song, but a bit overplayed - helloitsme

Seriously one of the most powerful messages in pop music! - Heyy7868

63 Sandcastles - Beyonce
64 Nights - Frank Ocean

Easily the best song of 2016. I mean, I think this is as high as it's going to get, but for the love of god, can we at least get it above One Dance and This Is What You Came For? - SwagFlicks

I can easily say this is the best song I've heard in 2016

Interesting - madoog

Nice - Stavoren55

65 Cranes in the Sky - Solange
66 Dreamers - MC Mario
67 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.

68 Insane - Korn
69 Freedom - Beyoncé

This song is beautiful - Moorefamval

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

70 Bored to Death - Blink 182

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

Great album preview song, Hope the album is good.

Amazing and underrated

That's how I feel about SCHOOL, Blink 182. Also, Halsey beat your song to death in Tuscon. - lovefrombadlands

71 Never Be Like You - Flume

This song is distinct and stunning. - madoog

Best song of 2016 by far!

Quality 2016 music! 8/10! - lovefrombadlands

72 Drunk Drivers / Killer Whales - Car Seat Headrest

How is this below 2 Phones and Cry Baby? - 445956

Who got No by Meghan Trainor higher? - 445956

73 Middle - DJ Snake

It will be summer hit one day.

Despite the nostalgic tone of the song, I can't say in any language how powerful the drop, the lyrics, and the synth chorus appeals to me. This made me a fan of DJ Snake - Neonco31

With you in the middle

Awesome song dude. - pcn

74 Smoke and Fire - Sabrina Carpenter

This is the best song ever! Sabrina Carpenter is the only good singer that I've heard in a while. She is the only girl on Disney that is pretty. And Selena Gomez sucks!

Should be one! She is the best singer ever! Everything about this song is great! And her voice is amazing! My favorite song ever!

This is the only good song on this list besides Don't Let Me Down and Can't Stop the Feeling - sabrinafan

Why isn't this one? It is too good! Sabrina deserves better! - sabrinacorbrinajoshaya

75 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

76 6 Inch - Beyonce

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

Is this about a Subway sandwich? - AlphaQ

Now I want a 6 inch tuna sub! - lovefrombadlands

Ok, I feel like she copied Halsey's album cover for Badlands - lovefrombadlands

77 The Threat is Real - Megadeth

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

78 Colors - Halsey

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

Should be #1. Halsey actually has a meaning to her music with amazing lyrics and the best voice - lovefrombadlands

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

One of the best songs - urielectric

79 Square Hammer - Ghost
80 Sorry Not Sorry - Bryson Tiller V 2 Comments
