50. “Gold” Imagine Dragons
Coming in just under the wire, Imagine Dragons released their second single off their new album, and it’s a stunner. Sounding like it should be sung by creepy clowns, it’s a unique rock track that Ryan Murphy should be using for the soundtrack of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
49. “I Don’t F*** With You (IDFWU)” Big Sean
Naya Rivera clearly inspires passion. Big Sean’s latest track is clearly a kissoff track for his former fiance, and damn it’s piercing.
48. “Airwaves” Ray LaMontagne
Ray settles into a catchy, laid-back groove with ease on this summery track.
47. “Why Do You Lie?” Liv Warfield
I’d hate to be the guy on the receiving end of this dismissal song that has some brass to really hit the point home.
46. “Shorty Don’t Wait” A Great Big World
This is the kind of song that you can just picture sitting around the campfire jamming and singing along to.
45. “Come Get It Bae” Pharrell Williams feat. Miley Cyrus
A song that gets you pumped that also promotes the beauty of a woman, AND it promoted the newest pop culture slang. You’ve done it again, Pharrell.
44. “Cold One” Eric Church
Male country singers are all about singing about girls and beer…but never has a singer combined them both in a catchy “play on words” song so well.
43. “Love Now” Calvin Harris featuring All About She
A total EDM song that separates itself from the cliche with powerful vocals and crazy good (and unique) string section.
42. “Love Me Harder” Ariana Grande featuring The Weeknd
In the most unexpected teamup in a while, the current pop princess duets with the reclusive R&B oddball for a stunning duet that became one of the biggest hits of the year.
41. “You Don’t Care About Me” Shakira
The latin powerhouse brings everything AND the kitchen sink for this percussion-heavy track that defies convention.
