A lot of my favorite albums of the year had all their best songs released in 2015 (looking at you, "Blackstar" and "Moth"), so when it comes to my favorite 2016 songs, they're all from "TLOP"...

Ultralight Beam
Famous
Real Friends
No More Parties in L.A.

So far I've heard 9 songs from this year that I like enough to include in my list...

Kanye West- Ultralight Beam
Kanye West- Famous
Kanye West- Real Friends
Kanye West- No More Parties in L.A.
PJ Harvey- The Wheel
PJ Harvey- The Community of Hope
Woods- Sun City Creeps
Weezer- L.A. Girlz
Anohni- Drone Bomb Me

...a lot of my favorite albums of the year ("Blackstar", "Moth", and "Grapefruit") suffer from the infamous "all their best songs were released the previous year" syndrome.

Favorite songs so far this year:

Anderson .Paak | Am I Wrong (a 2015 cheat)
Anderson .Paak | Put Me Thru
Anderson .Paak | The Seasons/Carry Me (a 2015 cheat)
Ariana Grande | Dangerous Woman
David Bowie | Girl Loves Me
David Bowie | I Can't Give Everything Away
Esperanza Spalding | Good Lava
Kanye West featuring Kendrick Lamar | No More Parties in L.A.
Kendrick Lamar | Untitled No. 1
Kendrick Lamar | Untitled No. 7
KING | The Greatest (a 2015 cheat)
PJ Harvey | The Wheel
Rihanna | Kiss It Better
Triangulo de Amor Bizarro | Baila Sumeria

I still cannot believe anyone truly likes Ultralight Beam, easily one of his weakest songs in his discography.

Here is a song from this year I really love that comes perhaps from left-field:
It's a cover of Trust in Me (The Python's Song) from Disney's The Jungle Book, now re-imagined from a creepy semi-pedophile track to a slow-burning, seductive song with Scarlett Johansson in the style of some Bond songs or perhaps something by Lana Del Rey. It fits really well if you ask me.

I love Britney Spears' new song. After multiple repeats, it seems to get better and better. It'll be high on my year-end list.

I think My Body's Made Of Crushed Little Stars by MItski might be the most exciting two minutes of music since Fell In Love With A Girl.

I wasn't really expecting "Suicide Squad" for the movie itself (which is critically panned, so count me out), but for the promise of new Grimes material. The resulting song, "Medieval Warfare", is very Nine Inch Nails-sounding. I like it, although it's a little run-of-the-mill if you take it as a NIN-inspired song. Grimes' singing and lyrics are otherwise just as nasty as ever. Overall, it's pretty good.

Perhaps it's just me, but I don't feel like it has been a very good year for songs. This is a bit surprising, since I feel like it has been a pretty decent year for albums. In fact, most of the top songs seem to be from a handful of albums.

I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks will place high on the year-end Acclaimed Music song list. To me, many spots in the top 10 - including number 1 are completely up for grabs. Right now, I think number one would be between "Ultralight Beam" and "One Dance".

These are the songs that I think have a decent shot at a top 50 placement. What else am I missing?

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds:
I Need You
Jesus Alone

Beyonce:
Formation

There's still 3 months for top songs of the year to reveal themselves. so I don't feel the need to get nervous quite yet. I can definitely see them slipping in at the end of the year, like "Lazarus" did last year.

I thought "Blonde" was a very good album, but as it stands there's no one song that really stands out to me. Maybe a couple more listens will reveal something, but for me the album is more of a case of "an album full of good songs with no real stand outs". Compare this to "Channel Orange", where "Pyramids", "Thinkin Bout You", "Sweet Life", "Bad Religion", and "Lost" all made my top 50 songs of the year (!!).

Yeah, I agree with this, but I think "Nights" and "Pink + White" are really good songs.

Future Critic wrote:21. Tilted, Christine and the Queens
That's either 2014 (if you take into account the French version titled Christine) or 2015 (the one in English).
I guess for this kind of songs, like 99 luftballons or anything by Kraftwerk, Henrik considers all the versions together. Not sure anyone mentioned before that it was the same song though.

Normally not into trap at all, but I'm loving D.R.A.M.'s single "Broccoli". Such a fun song with unusual instrumental for a trap song (prominent piano and flute run throughout the song).

"Broccoli" is rapidly climbing my songs of the year list.

The new Foxygen songs sound amazing. I really liked their album "We Are the 21st Century...", but their followup "...And Star Power" was absolute trash, probably the worst album I've heard from this decade so far.

Glad to see them returning to form.
