SPECIAL: Feed The Dog’s Top Songs of 2016

travis-scott-young-thug-pick-up-your-phone

I’ll save most of my thoughts for the albums post – but it’s been a pretty great year for songs. Pop, hip hop and dance music are all peaking right now. My top two songs this year are top songs of the decade as far as I’m concerned.

My rules: one song per release (not artist). You can stream the whole list on Spotify here. Typically, this is where I’d mention that there are a number of songs that aren’t on Spotify and therefore not on the list, but I haven’t really been keeping up with my soundcloud artists this year, and all my favorite rappers released real albums this year (even though mixtapes all end up on Spotify now anyway)… so only two tracks on the top list are left out (Beyonce and LIZ).

 

1. Young Thug & Travis Scott feat. Quavo – pick up the phone


2. Rihanna feat. Drake – Work


3. Kanye West – Ultralight Beam


4. AlunaGeorge – I Remember


5. Post Malone feat. Justin Bieber – Deja Vu


6. Ty Dolla $ign – Zaddy


7. Kent Jones – Don’t Mind


8. Mr. Bill feat. Spazzkid – Pinnacle


9. WSTRN – A-List – Preditah Remix


10. Flume feat. Kai – Never Be Like You


11. Daya – Sit Still, Look Pretty (R!OT Remix)


12. Glass Animals – Season 2 Episode 3
