Best Songs of 2016

81 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

82 Stone Cold - Demi Lovato

Not sure why Demi is not in the Top 5. It's clear that very few people understand music or talent. Most talented young beautiful woman in the last 5 years.

83 Bury It - Chvrches

This doesn't make any sense...why is this here? WHY AM I QUESTIONING, better yet? - WonkeyDude98

84 Ritual Spirit - Massive Attack

It's been six too long years since Massive Attack hit us with Girl I Love You and Paradise Circus, and now we have something that brings us back to the old classics, some older than me, with the eerieness and power of Ritual Spirit. Massive Attack have shown here that they haven't lost the edge which makes their masterpieces what they are. This is definitely one of them, and it makes an excellent start to a musical 2016, with the dynamic duo proving themselves to be just as great as they were, making some of the best songs of all time. - PositronWildhawk

85 Hallelujah - Panic! at the Disco

This song was released back in spring of last year. And I wouldn't call it one of the better songs from the album. - Zach808

86 This Girl - Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners

Very powerful beat and it's just impossible to dislike. - redhawk766

88 Don't Need You - Bullet for My Valentine
89 Rotting in Vain - Korn

Korn's best song in my opinion, despite being around for so many years.

90 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.

This should be way up. This album will be good

91 When We Were Young - Adele
92 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

93 Love On the Brain - Rihanna

One of the best songs this year for sure. Her vocals are insane.

This should be in the top ten AT LEAST. I've never been a huge Rihanna fan, but this song just does it for me. The vocals are amazing, and emotional, and raw. The lyrics are beautifully crafted. There's not a single bad thing about this song.

Timeless masterpiece, her vocals are stunning in both studio and live versions. - DaisyandRosalina

I Hate The Album, But I Like This Song - VideoGamefan5

94 Talk Me Down - Troye Sivan

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

95 Team - Iggy Azalea

No. This is a monstrosity made by a rapper who is at this point a lost cause. - WonkeyDude98

Not a fan of Iggy in general. However, I will never understand the hate for this song. At least it's several leagues above anything Jacob Sartorious and Mark Thomas have offered.

Won't Iggy Azalea just give up now? Nobody has cared about her since fall 2014.

Iggy Ass-Alea is diet-Nicki Minaj - AlphaQ

96 Since You've Gone to Heaven - Brandy Clark
97 Together Stronger (C'mon Wales) - Manic Street Preachers
98 Winter's Gate - Insomnium

Very atmospheric, epic and underrated.

Brilliant

99 Good Grief - Bastille

This is one of the blandest songs I've ever heard. The marimba, the compressed snapping overwhelming it, Dan Smith's melodrama completely missing the mark of hiding grief of someone's death, the awkward repetition on the chorus, it's one of the best off that atrocious sophomore album, though that's not saying much. Kind of a shame when you consider what they did before. 1/5, entirely because of the somewhat upbeat nature of it. - WonkeyDude98

This song and the rest of the album are pure genius. My favorites on the album are Lethargy, The Anchor, and Good Grief.
