TiBB'S TOP SONG OF 2016 Welcome to the Top Song of 2016. If you're not sure of what this whole thing is, here are a few links to competitions of previous years: 2015: "Run Away With Me" by Carly Rae Jepsen 2014: "Chandelier" by Sia 2013: "Work" by Iggy Azalea 2012: "Pyramids" by Frank Ocean 2011: "Midnight City" by M83 2010: "What's My Name (feat. Drake)" by Rihanna 2009: "Sweet Disposition" by the Temper Trap 2008: "Womanizer" by Britney Spears We'll begin with a Top 200 of the year, hand-picked through the following methods: - Any song that has appeared in the Top 15 of the UK single charts at any point from January 1 2016 to December 30 2016 (the last chart date of the year). - Because streaming has effectively strangled the idea of anything new hitting the charts for a brief fling, I've had to also include anything that made the top 5 in Australia's ARIA 50 and top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100, but then this isn't just a site for Britons so that's not a problem really. - Even then, that only leaves 98 songs D: - Of those, songs originally released prior to January 1 - either as a single, or on an album released before July 2015 - have been removed. - Also, songs that have appeared in previous editions of this game cannot count. - And finally, re-releases of songs don't count (sorry, Mariah Carey). - I've shoved in a handful of songs that did well in critics' "end of the year" lists from the likes of the Guardian, NME, Rolling Stone, Popjustice and Pitchfork too. I have bolded these. Within reason, mind, I mean Popjustice are going to try and make things like 'Christie and the Dream Beats' happen and that's just silly because no one on here has heard of them. - To save the list from becoming too repetitive, artists are restricted to just their 3 highest-charting songs. In the event of songs charting at the same place, only the song that charted first chronologically was included. This rule has only affected Little Mix, Shawn Mendes, Drake and Ariana Grande. So here's how it will work.. PRELIMINARY ROUND I've compiled a list of 125 songs below, picked from singles that made the top 15 of the UK charts / other charts this year and songs that did well in critics' end-of-year lists (bolded) QUALIFYING ROUND 75 songs are required to be voted into the game by the forum. EVERYONE can submit 5 songs to be supported by other members, and every member has 10 support votes. This'll be kept tally of in the OP, and will be edited into the main list in blue REMEMBER: all songs submitted must be released in 2016, and there can only be 3 songs per (main) artist in the competition. If Drake features on a song, for example, that can still be submitted, but nothing that was released by himself as the main act. TO COME: Round 1: Out of the top 200, each member can choose their favourite TWENTY songs. The songs that get any votes will move onto Round 2. ----------------------------------- Quote: Adele - Send My Love (To Your New Lover) Alan Walker - Faded (feat.
