2016 - A Year In Review

Well, I guess you could say that 2016 wasn't so great for the music industry. We lost a lot of musicians, which is very sad. But as far as the music goes, I wasn't so impressed. We had too much hip hop, and an overload of super boring songs. But there were some highlights. We definitely saw lots of great songs. This post, I will be reviewing the year of 2016. 

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 guy kid. The vocals are atrocious, but the beat sounds like it's from 3rd Grade music class. He tries to rap, which is the prehaps the most pathetic thing I've ever heard. HE'S 14 GOSH DARNIT!!! The lyrics are dumb, and so is the song. This kid needs to stop. NOW!

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.


  • Adam Lambert – Another Lonely Night
  • Alesso/Nico & Vinz – I Wanna Know
  • Bebe Rexha/Nicki Minaj – No Broken Hearts
  • Ben Rector – Brand New
  • Bo Napoleon – If That's Ok
  • BØRNS – Electric Love
  • David Guetta/Sia/Fetty Wap – Bang My Head
  • Demi Lovato – Stone Cold
  • Disturbed – The Sound of Silence
  • Ellie Goulding – Still Falling For You
  • Flo Rida/Jason Derulo – Hello Friday
  • Hailee Steinfeld/DNCE – Rock Bottom
  • Jacob Whitesides – Secrets
  • Jason Derulo – Kiss The Sky
  • Kelly Clarkson/Janelle Monáe/Kelly Rowland/Lea Michele/Zendaya/Missy Elliott – This Is For My Girls
  • Kungs & Cookin' On 3 Burners – This Girl
  • Magic! – Red Dress
  • Magic!/Sean Paul – Lay You Down Easy
  • MAX – Basement Party
  • Mike Posner – Be As You Are
  • MKTO – Superstitious
  • Nathan Sykes/Ariana Grande – Over and Over Again
  • One Direction – Infinity
  • Snakehips/Zayn – Cruel
  • Steve Aoki & Boehm/Walk The Moon – Back 2 U
  • The Summer Set – The Night Is Young
  • Troye Sivan/Alessia Cara – Wild

Everybody in the blogging community lists there favorite hitbound dropout of the year as the "Lights Over Paris" award. I guess I'll go with that. There weren't any hitbound dropouts this year that were EXTREMELY disappointing, but there were lots of good songs that got stranded. This was a very difficult choice, but I have to choose a song that was undeniably catchy and came from a band that fails to disappoint.

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)!

Honorable Mention(s): 

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.

Dishonorable Mention(s): 

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.

Honorable Mention(s):

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.

Honorable Mention(s): 

DNCE
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.

Dishonorable Mention(s):

Selena Gomez
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.

Lukas Graham 

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!

Daya

Just another sassy teenager who is too obsessed with her talking voice. 

Justin Bieber

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.

    1. Are you NOT realizing that you're trashing the blog of an innocent person who hasn't even commented in months? What if he comes back in the summer and sees your hateful comments? I understand what you're trying to say to Chase, but you, Hollow Man, and Lukas need to realize that if people comment differently, there could be a possibility that they are autistic and it's not their fault for commenting like that. You can't just tell an autistic person to f**k off because of the way they behave. And I am not doing anything wrong. I want to help fix and glue this broken blog community back together. You've all made half of this post's comments into a warzone. For the millionth time, this is a satellite radio countdown community, not a bunch of hate comments and that does not belong here at all. It is embarrassing and disgusting to see this here and if you are going to comment like this, you do not deserve to be commenting at all. Just look at two of the phrases you violated: "Treat others the way you want to be treated." "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all." Just please stop already, I'm so sick of this hate and so is everyone else here.
