3 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This was played at the end of my eighth grade graduation party, so this song really hits me. I had known all those kids since second grade, and it was time to say goodbye to them.

8 Closer - The Chainsmokers

This song was #1 for 12 weeks in 2016, and although it is just another generic electropop song, Halsey's verse makes up for Drew's lackluster vocal performance in my opinion. - allamassal

This song went #1 back in February 2018, and stayed there until mid-April, a total of 11 weeks, although it isn't really that good. The main reason it did so well was because of the meme around one particular lyric in the song. - allamassal
