Let's start out with the absolute worst songs. I will give my bottom 5 songs of the year, and then I will review them all.
5. Selena Gomez - Hands To Myself
This should be no surprise to many of you. I cannot stand the choppy whispering in the versus. It bores me to death. Her wailing in the pre-chorus is just obnoxious, and the chorus has more whispering. STOP WHISPERING AND START SINGING!
4. Selena Gomez - Same Old Love
I basically see this song as a pathetic scream-fest from an artist that I highly despise.
3. Jacob Sartorius - Sweatshirt
This kid sounds like a dead pig. His slurry, auto-tuned voice is extremely
ear-bleeding. The lyrics to this song are stupid and childish, and the instrumentals are so amateur. NEXT!
2. Jacob Sartorius - Hit Or Miss
More of this
1. Lukas Graham - Mama Said
Lukas Graham cannot sing. His voice is way to scratchy, and he cannot hit those high notes. But I would take that any day over a pack of wailing children! The versus are overproduced. The vocals remain awful. So it can't get any worse, right? WRONG! At the end, Lukas Graham sings with the children! Um....no. Just no. It's currently winter break, but I think that a math equation is necessary. Lukas Graham + A Pack Of Screaming Children = The Worst Song Of 2016. Enough said.
Now for all of this year's hitbound dropouts.
- Steve Aoki & Boehm/Walk The Moon – Back 2 U
- The Summer Set – The Night Is Young
- Troye Sivan/Alessia Cara – Wild
Lights Over Paris Award Winner: MKTO - Superstitious
Now, I will give out some awards.
Best #1 Song On Hits 1: DNCE - Cake By The Ocean
This song is absolutely epic. We have Joe Jonas with his incredible vocals and his ultimate swagger. We also have the killer upbeat chorus that has me turning the radio all the way up (not the song)!
Panic! At The Disco - Victorious
It's so funky and crazy in the absolute perfect way.
Demi Lovato - Confident
I love everything about this song. The tempo alteration and the engaging beat are both pretty epic.
Worst #1 Song On Hits 1: NONE!!!
That's right, no bad songs hit #1 on Hits 1. Sure, some got old. But none of them were necessarily bad.
Worst Breakout Song Of The Year: Jacob Sartorius - Sweatshirt
I've already reviewed this song. Just.........no.
Lukas Graham - 7 Years
Ah! What's up with the vocals?! Snooze fest.
Dawin - Dessert
I have absolutely NO interest in trendy songs that just blow up on freakin' YouTube. But when they make it to Hits 1? Smh. Let's just hope we Jumpshot doesn't get popular. Also, what's with the baby in the chorus?
Best Breakout Song Of The Year: DNCE - Cake By The Ocean
Already reviewed this one. Just awesome.
Jon Bellion - All Time Low
From the vocals to the beat, this song hits on all cylinders. I can't wait to here more from this guy.
Jacob Whitesides - Lovesick
Wow, this dude can sing a lot better than the other Jacob (yeah, him).
Best Artist Of The Year: Panic! At The Disco
Talk about consistency. I loved pretty much every song from Death Of A Bachelor. Still my favorite band of all time.
Our lone honorable mention. Joe Jonas is sick! He's got a killer voice and he can hit those high notes like nobody else. He released two great songs, and one song that was too good to be true. YES!
Worst Artist Of The Year: Jacob Sartorius
I'm sorry, but this kid just sucks. As I've said before, he sounds like a dead pig. Every song he made this year was overproduced with those chippy synths and childish lyrics. Yuck.
I wanted to put her as the worst artist of the year SO DARN BADLY!!! She released two pieces of awful trash this year. Her songs are so bland, uninteresting and obnoxious. Help me.
Oh my gosh, I wish this guy never existed. He just cannot sing. I hated his breakout hit, but his follow up is just a big fat no!
Just another sassy teenager who is too obsessed with her talking voice.
I know I might be surprising some of you, but I just didn't dig any of his music this year. He actually has a decent voice, but his songs are all awful. First he gives us What Do You Mean? which basically sounded like a teenager trying to sing over a ticking clock. Then, we had Sorry. Not bad at first, but that repetitive drop and the slurry whisper in the versus got old old real quickly. Worst of all, Love Yourself. That was just trash in every way, shape and form. Give me those three songs in one year, and you end up on this list.
