Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

102 Together Stronger (C'mon Wales) - Manic Street Preachers
103 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

104 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

The song would have been better if Mike Will Made It had not put his name twice in the song to let people know who produced it. It is annoying. I already knew who produced this song. - madoog

And in my opinion Mike WiLL Made It sucks. If you hate him why not call him Mike WiLL Ruined It - AlphaQ

Ahh I'm being cursed because I'm liking this song these days. It's better than Rae's other dumb songs. - AlphaQ

I love this song it's good as I recommend it to anyone.

Rae Sremmurd's only good song excluding the ones that he is featured in - kok2

105 When It Rain - Danny Brown
106 Solo - Frank Ocean
107 Girl in Amber - Nick Cave
108 Exceptions - cupcakKe
109 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

110 All Time Low - Jon Bellion

This is what we need more of in pop music. Yeah it's a breakup song but it's a different kind of breakup song. Jon Bellion sells it really well with his production and delivery. I wish I had more to say about this absolutely great song that, believe it or not, Bellion started 2 years ago

This sounds like some credit song to some Disney or Dreamworks movie... - Moorefamval

I Ike this catchy song and it's really pleasant. 5/5 - AlphaQ

First time I heard this in the radio, thought it was by Fun and said "No no no no no" instead of "Low low low low low" - EastZombie

111 Strength of the Mind - Killswitch Engage

Kickass song, among the greatest KSE produces

112 New Year's Eve - MØ

MO's underrated especially considering no one knows here for two of EDM's biggest songs. THis is awesome as always - ProPanda

113 Church Bells - Carrie Underwood
114 We are England - Shaun Ryder

I am not England

115 Solo (Reprise) - Frank Ocean
116 Me and Your Momma - Childish Gambino
117 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift
118 Enough About Me - Forever in Your Mind
119 Pedophile - cupcakKe
120 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
