Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Square Hammer - Ghost
122 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

123 Alive - Sia

125 Write on Me - Fifth Harmony
126 Like I Would - Zayn

It sounds somewhat sloppy. - madoog

127 All My Friends - Jacob Sartorius

As awful and deplorable as Jacob Sartorius is, I will admit this song is actually a little passable. It got a decent beat to it and Jacob Sartorius' voice isn't the torture type of bad unlike Hit Or Miss and Sweatshirt. What did hurt this song was the childish lyrics. So far, it's a 3/5 at best. - SelfDestruct

128 Angels - Chance the Rapper
129 Self Control - Frank Ocean
130 Amerika - Wintersleep
131 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

132 Leave Me Lonely - Ariana Grande
133 Houdini - Death Grips
134 Blood, Tears, Dust - Lacuna Coil
135 White Ferrari - Frank Ocean
136 Lgbt - cupcakKe
137 Side to Side - Ariana Grande

*giggles* I really shouldn't love this song as much as I do! - WonkeyDude98

I hate this song good thing it's on #57. What is this song doing here? They should move it to #100, if there's any number of that. Sucker. Ha ha.

It's kinda catchy

Great song - 1507563

138 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 love this song, but my sister doesn't because she says it gave her a bad dream but I can't help my taste in music! 10/10~! - lovefrombadlands

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

139 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

It's a solid 10/10 but the first time I heard it, I heard 'but I've had and awful time, no no no no no no no no no no...' - lovefrombadlands

140 Brother, Can You Hear Me? - Dream Theater

Dream Theater is one of the greatest bands ever. - naFrovivuS
