101 Pedophile - cupcakKe
102 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

103 All in My Head (Flex) - Fifth Harmony

Good song. WAY better than Work From Home. Thanks, Fifth Harmony, for cleaning up your act!

This is MUCH better than Work From Home by a HUGE margin (though that isn't hard). I really like the rock-reggae-ish instrumental, it has a lot of swing to it, and all the girls (except Camila) actually show some personality in their innuendo, albeit very little. But this song isn't good without Fetty Wap. His jovial voice and unmatched energy is a lot more fun-sounding than any of these girls. 4/5, best song on 7/27. - WonkeyDude98

104 My House - Flo Rida

This song shrunk on me a bit after I found out that it was a ripoff of Kalin and Myles' Trampoline, but I still enjoy this for what it is, much more so than GDFR. The low-key piano melody is instantly memorable, the chugging percussion gives it a lot of energy, and the fuzzy guitar snarl on the post-chorus sounds amazing. The chorus is one of the greatest choruses of all time, honestly. Is it good? Not really. Do I enjoy it? Oh yeah. 3.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

An upbeat fun time in a tsunami of awful, boring, depressing, and mind-numbingly slow pop music.

Why is this so low? It's really good for Flo Rida! I don't hate him, he's just not very good.

This song is the perfect party song! - Moorefamval

105 Alive - Sia
106 Write on Me - Fifth Harmony
107 Like I Would - Zayn V 1 Comment
108 Fatal Illusion - Megadeth

It's really sad to see Rihanna and Justin Bieber higher than this masterpiece. - NikBrusk

Justin Bieber is better so no need to be unhappy with the ranks. - AlphaQ

Sweatshirt Above This? , Kill Me - VideoGamefan5

Kickass song!

This song is cringeworthy, and is NOTHING compared to Desiinger.

109 Angels - Chance the Rapper
110 Self Control - Frank Ocean
111 Amerika - Wintersleep
112 Change - Christina Aguilera

This is only a taste of what Xtina has coming. Honestly, I don't even know if this is gonna be part of her next album (I believe the title is "Blonde" according to an early leaked track list) and I'd rather it just be a standalone single. But what a taste this song is! I mean, it's melody is understated but her vocals so perfectly emote the subtly powerful lyrics. It's not great but it's an improvement from the generic direction she took on Lotus. And no more unnecessary autotune! THANK GOD she left that behind! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE ALBUM'S RELEASE! - theOpinionatedOne

Well, the song is still gold and it was indeed taken from the Blonde album. However, it seems as though the release of Blonde has been shelved and she's started from scratch. I just hope the final product is good one whenever she releases it. - theOpinionatedOne

113 Leave Me Lonely - Ariana Grande
114 Houdini - Death Grips
115 White Ferrari - Frank Ocean
116 Lgbt - cupcakKe
117 Cry Baby - Melanie Martinez

Melanie is very interesting, combining childish imagery for really dark and deep lyrical content. I knew from The Voice she was unique but Cry Baby is the dawn of a new beginning for Melanie

Why can't they ever play Melanie on the radio? If the radio people are concerned about the explicit language, they should just play the clean version and take off the other garbage full of swears

I don't think this is considered as "a song of 2016" since it wasn't released in 2016. Or maybe I got it wrong. This is still an amazing song though. Gotta love the story!

This song is so amazing it is worth it to buy on any device espically the song "Pacify Her! ". - jaaaa

118 Exist - Avenged Sevenfold

Oh for the Lord's sake! 304th!

Exist and Higher by Avenged Sevenfold. How is that stupid starboy song number 1? - GuitarMann

119 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber really turned to an artist who tries out a lot of new things, writes and performs a variety of genres and moods and and improved his overall quality to extremes. I honestly think he is one of the best pop artists of our time now.

Nevertheless, I am pretty sure this song was released 2015. - Martin_Canine

I DO love myself for not being one of the countless other young people who worship this guy. I can say one positive thing about Bieber's new stuff: he actually sounds like a guy. A hormonal, overly emotional guy, but a guy nonetheless. Other than that though, this song is way too simple. In fact, the word simple probably makes it sound even more complex than it actually is. And the lyrics are nothing special either. It's another one of those cases of "I don't care. That's why I put the time in to write, record, and pay for a song about how much I don't care." It's overrated, boring, and, well, it's Justin Bieber. - AngryByrd

Not gonna lie, Bieber's new stuff is dope. - Puga

Overplayed and overrated. Sure SOME of the purpose songs were okay, but this son sucks. And we all know he's talking about himself. But he insists its about Selena.

120 I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd

Weeknd's collaboration with Daft Punk pays off good. Song is simple but has good musical value. Niall Horan's "This town" comes in close for me; but "I feel it coming" is richer and more melodic.

This song is amazing, and I'm not being hyperbolic. - Satire

I don't even know why, but somehow this, Starboy, and False Alarm all have this too-perfect charm that makes them cut through any critical faculties for me. While this isn't as amazing as either the piccolo and bass-heavy awesomeness of Starboy or the gritty, willowy False Alarm, it's easily the slickest, most fun song The Weeknd has ever made, and when you consider the content...well, that should be no surprise.

Fun fact: this sample is the first time I've listened to this. Thank you Abel, for being abysmal at YouTube. 7/5 - WonkeyDude98
