Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 8

141 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

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!

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

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

142 Faded - Alan Walker

Why this song is on here but alone is not

This song was, for me, a breath of fresh air from songs like Pillowtalk and Girls Like. It's got meaningful lyrics, a pretty good singer and AMAZING instrumental. :-)

I thought I disliked Cheap Thrills but where do I begin with this monstrosity?

Creepy Christina Perri-wannabe song. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Why wasn't this a huge hit for The Chainsmokers?

145 Purple Lamborghini - Skrillex & Rick Ross Purple Lamborghini - Skrillex & Rick Ross

This song is really awesome. The beat is fantastic and Rick Ross has done his best in years. 5/5 - AlphaQ

146 It's Quiet Uptown - Kelly Clarkson
147 New Level - A$ap Ferg V 1 Comment
148 I Can't Give Everything Away - David Bowie

Rip David Bowie. Great song off a great album

149 Eat - Young Ma
150 2 Phones - Kevin Gates

Are you joking? This song is awful! - WonkeyDude98

Stupid song ever heard - jaaaa

Dope song dude

WHAT?! NO! - kayarichardson_llama

151 I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It - The 1975

The title sends chills down my spine. - WonkeyDude98

Ironically, the album doesn't have that kind of tone that the title has. - Tristan1975R5

The title is way too long. - Powerfulgirl10

The title is so weird - astroshark

152 Modern Soul - James Blake
153 Low Life - Future

This song is a bit dull but it is really good. For a lot of people (because I know a lot of people hate Future for some reason) this song will be excellent for you. The Weeknd does a good job as usual but Future's job is surprising because he's usually dull but I really enjoyed this song more than I expected. Good job to the both of you. Especially Future. 5/5 - AlphaQ

Now I dislike Future with a passion, but I cannot deny how awesome this it. The production is dark and controlled, unlike most Future songs, and also unlike most Future songs he handles it well. The Weeknd handles the hook well as well. He is meant for dark beats like this. Yeah, sure the lyrics are weird but it dosen't matter becuase the rest of the song is amazing. Good job. 5/5 - ProPanda

This dark song is brilliant. The Weeknd's vocals are sick. Keep it up, Future. - madoog

154 Wow - Beck
155 Force of Hand - Dark Tranquillity
156 Hate - 4minute
157 What Happened to Us? - Shura
158 Fast Car - Jonas Blue ft. Dakota

The original for me is better. I usually don't like covers and quite picky about them. This one is good and I can enjoy both.

Love this song

159 Youth - Troye Sivan

This song barley has bass or beat so awful! - jaaaa

This feels like it shouldn't be as perfect as it is, and yet is still flawed. Granted, I like it. Troye has a lot of real charisma and personality behind his whispery vocals, the lyrics have a lot of sentiment behind them, and the beat is interesting.

But like, that drop...4/5 - WonkeyDude98

160 Wherever I Go - Onerepublic

Awesome. The piano is clean and new, the drums are pretty nice, pumping bass and weird cool guitars. Ryan's vocals can be a bit grating at first, but give it a chance, and you'll really like it. - ClimaxProductons

Not a fan. Compared to Counting Stars and Love Runs Out which I thoroughly loved, this is pretty bland and directionless. Not bad, but OneRepublic has done better. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98
