‘Time’ reveals the ‘worst songs’ of 2016

Featuring Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy, Meghan Trainor and more

Time Magazine has unveiled a list of what it deems as the ‘Top 10 Worst Songs’ of the year.

The list sees Justin Timberlake‘s Trolls soundtrack hit ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ (listen below) take the unwanted honour of top spot, with the song described as an “insipid earworm… essentially unavoidable at any social gathering”.

Other tracks to feature in the top 10 include Britney Spears’ ‘Private Show’ and ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ by Mike Posner.


Speaking to NME earlier this year, Posner said of that song: “In the industry, my career was generally considered over, and people were calling me a one-hit wonder. With that song, I was just trying to be honest about coming down from the mountaintop of success; people’s ascent to the top is always very well-documented and everybody wants to write about it, but I was interested in what it’s like to come back down again.”

Meghan Trainor has two songs in the list (‘No’ and ‘Mom’), while Iggy Azalea is at third spot with ‘Team’. See the full list, which includes Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott’s Ghostbusters theme, below:

10. Lukas Graham – ‘7 Years’
9. Britney Spears – ‘Private Show’
8. Meghan Trainor – ‘No’
7. Gnash – ‘I hate u, I love u’
6. Mike Posner – ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’
5. Machine Gun Kelly – ‘Bad Things’
