The 2016 Year End Charts by luckyONE *done*

Moderators: tdc2000, FreakyFlyBry

 

Postby luckyONE » Sun Dec 11, 2016 10:32 am

    2016 is coming to an end and just like in 2014 and 2015, I'm opening this thread a few days before I'll start this.

    There will be three different countdowns again.

    >> Top songs

    >> Top albums

    >> Top artists

    This year, I didn't really feel most releases album-wise I thought it would became an interesting year, but for me personally, it really wasn't. With 2011, so far definitely my least favorite year of the current decade. It had some nice songs to offer at least.

    TOP SONGS
    Once again, my Year End Charts are based on my weekly charts from the last 52 weeks. #1 gets 40 points, #2 gets 39 points, etc. and #40 gets one point. The song with the most points becomes the song of the year.

    List of songs that topped the charts in 2016:

    ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

    There are still two more weeks left on the Weekly charts, so maybe two more songs will join this list?
    2016 list coming soon.

    TOP ARTISTS

    The total points from the single charts and the album charts are counted together and the artist with the most points in total is the ARTIST OF THE YEAR. So chances are great you end up high on this list if you have a strong album performance since you get more points on the album charts. When you are only an single artist, you usually end in the lower part of this chart.

    throwback
    ( i still have to check out the top artists from the years 2010 - 2011, but rihanna was #1 in 2010 and adele #1 in 2011)

I like most of your chart-topping songs and albums so this should be a pretty fantastic countdown. :D

I'll start with my personal favorite songs from 2016. Any song that has been released as a single in 2016 was allowed to make this list.

I'll created a Top 10 list but there are 5 honorable mentions.

Honorable mentions to be posted later today when I'm back from town.

SIA - THE GREATEST (without Kendrick Lamar)



I'm free to be the greatest here tonight

Honorable mention #1
Glad they released a version without Kendrick Lamar to be honest, his verse is not my cup of tea. The song itself however is definitely one of Sia's finest songs, my favorite song by her along "Fire Meet Gasoline", and I'm not a big fan of her music. This song however was a nice surprise this year. 8-)

BIRDY - WORDS



You're in the clear while I'm waking up to nothing but tears

Honorable mention #2
It was a close race between Words and Keeping Your Head Up to be featured in the honorable mentions, but I decided to choose Words because it's less known. First I thought this song was boring but it really grew on me. I think it's a well written song and that lyric line I chose is the reason I adore it to be honest.

So i went with "Ain't Your Mama" in the poll as this would be my favorite from all the ones we can choose from. And she smashed hard on your personal charts, so i'm sure she'll do great :)

As for the honorable mentions, i really like both so far.
Sia had an amazing 2016 and "The Greatest" was another great pop tune from her. Should have been even more successful than it was IMO.
As for "Words", unfortunately i never got into the song like you did, but it's still nice for me. Still a wrong single choice, a shame, as the album has so many hidden gems. But Birdy remains awesome, so it's good to see her getting that honorable mention :)

I love "The Greatest", and, for me, it doesn't work as well without Kendrick's verse, though that's probably because Kendrick's verse has a lyric that's especially relevant for me.

This choice definitely won't be far off! :D
First, I wasn't into "Words" either but , once again just like with many other songs :lol: , when I listened to the lyrics carefully I realized how beautiful it is. And it's also my most played song from "Beautiful Lies".

I'm not a fan of Sia, but The Greatest is one of the few songs I really do adore a lot!

Haven't paid attention to Kendrick's part to be honest, I can't stand his voice. :oops:

ELLIE GOULDING - STILL FALLING FOR YOU



Your heart got me hurting at times
Your heart gave me new kind of highs
Your heart got me feeling so fine


Honorable mention #3
I really wasn't into this at first but now I think it's better than anything on Delirium (aside from On My Mind + ARMY). Love it so much!

Don't agree it's better than a lot of Delirium (Devotion, Paradise, SITWYM, Holding On For Life, Don't Need Nobody, Lost & Found) all better, but I'm still a big fan!

MØ - FINAL SONG



Baby when we were young
There was nothing to make believe
And the songs that we sang
They were written for you and me
Melodies on repeat
That's what I hear when you're by my side
Yeah, that's what I hear when you're by my side


Honorable mention #4
A nice surprise this year, I didn't care for her music that much before hearing "Final Song", but if she ever releases the album, I will surely check it out.

MIKE POSNER - BE AS YOU ARE [ JORDAN XL REMIX ]



But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon' understand
So at age 22
I cried to my mother
And she told me, "young man"
"There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
It doesn't matter if you become some star
Life is better when you open your heart
You don't always have to act so hard, no
Just be as you are"


Honorable mention #5
That moment when you're at a point in your life where you doubt everything - and then suddenly you hear a song and its lyrics totally help you and you can relate to it... that's what happened with that song. Amazing tune!

TOP 10 starting this afternoon!!!

I liked "Final Song" at first, but now I don't like it as much as I used to do before, probably because I heard the song too often on the radio. It's still a decent song though.

It definitely was played a lot on the radio... me on the other side started to like it even more due to great airplay. 8-)

It would have been Top 10 but in the last few days I changed the Top 10 a little bit and "Be As You Are" fell out of it. :)

#10 EMELI SANDÉ - HURTS



I put this in my Top 10 because it grew so much on me. First, I thought it was an annoying track, however the more I listened to it, the more I fell in love with it. Plus I love the lyrics so much. Yeah, I probably will say this with almost every track in the Top 10, but it's so good when you find songs you can relate to. And sometimes, 'it' just hurts. Love her powerful voice her, always pretend I have such a strong voice too when I'm singing/lip-syncing along 8-) wish it was called 'it hurts', though. :oops:

#09 THE CHAINSMOKERS - CLOSER featuring HALSEY


One of the biggest hits of the year, and I absolutely love it! Especially the line "Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue, but I'm okay"
is another reason why I adore it. Although I have to confess that "All We Know" may become my favorite Chainsmokers song eventually, that one is absolutely flawless as well. :o
