1. See You Again by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth

While I no longer find this one fun,
Im glad that its had a good run.
Its sweet and its mild,
And behind Young & Wild,
Its the best thing Wiz has ever done.

2. Bad Blood by Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar

T. Swift is fine, as a rule,
But this is the dregs of that pool.
I think you can tell
It wouldnt do as well
If the video werent so cool.

3. Cheerleader by OMI

Its a slightly clumsy metaphor,
But theres so much that I still adore.
With no beats to thump it,
Just a roving trumpet
To keep the thing sweet at its core.

4. Trap Queen by Fetty Wap

Fetty has much cause to rejoice,
As the peoples unanimous choice.
Not bad for a guy
With weird tones and one eye
Who sings in Kevin Rowlands voice.

5. Shut Up And Dance by WALK THE MOON

Before, this songs jubilant shout
Would outweigh my niggling doubt,
But since many a day
Of intense overplay,
Its welcome is getting worn out.

6. Cant Feel My Face by The Weeknd

His last had orchestral pretense,
Of which this is glad to dispense.
Which can work a treat,
Though the central conceit
Just doesnt make a lick of damn sense.

7. Watch Me by Silento

Theres nothing especially wrong,
And yet any listens too long.
Its just a big blend
Of prior dance trends,
And, as such, is just barely a song.

8. Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars

Next time I do this, itll be gone,
But Im very glad that it held on.
The cream rarely rises,
When someone devises
A track thats this carefully drawn.

9. Good For You by Selena Gomez

This song is what you would engender
Mixing Goulding and Lorde in a blender.
Too bland for romancing.
Too quiet for dancing,
Too overproduced to be tender.

10. Hey Mama by David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha, & Afrojack

Its hardly a new record-setta,
But its still churlish to expect betta.
Its Caribbean beats
Such a genuine treat,
I can scarcely believe that its Guetta.
