Guest List Week: Ilana's Best of 2016

[It's Guest List Week! The best week! You've heard my thoughts on the year in music, now let's hear from some other people who have equally great taste in music (but somehow have the ability to express their opinions in under 10,000 words)! Guest List Week starts with Ilana, exploring the ancient art of the haiku!]



(1) Francis and the Lights (feat. Bon Iver) - "Friends"

Song of the year, folks!
What about that white boy dance?
Eh, I'll let it slide

(2) Petite Meller - "Milk Bath"

This girl’s a genius
Palest chick on the planet
Great videos, too

(3) Snow Tha Product (feat. W. Darling) - "Nights"

It’s not Rihanna
But it’s really, really close
And also better

(4) Beyoncé (feat. The Weeknd) - "6 Inch"

Nothing shocking here
The Weeknd loves his strippers
Dat killer beat doe

(5) The Weeknd (feat. Daft Punk) - "Starboy"

He does it again
Just wish this beat dropped harder
Where the strippers at?

(6) Leonard Cohen - "You Want It Darker"

I like scary songs
Heavy beat, haunting vocals
This year was the worst

(7) Jojo (feat. Wiz Khalifa) - "Fuck Apologies"

Wiz’s part’s so bad
I regret his inclusion 
And Jojo does too

(8) Joey Purp (feat. Chance the Rapper) - "Girls @" 

Another great beat
Who knew hip-hop was campy?
Yeah they know what’s up

(9) Desiigner - "Panda"

Just for the record
Aaron hoped “Panda” was drugs
We’re so out of touch

(10) Sia - "The Greatest"

SoulCycle’s a cult
We’re brainwashed to like Sia
And pay thirty bucks

(11) Kanye West - "Fade"

Oh yes, he’s crazy
But who wants boring pop stars?
Just don’t think too much

(12) Beyoncé (feat. Dixie Chicks) - "Daddy Lessons"

Get it, Southern girls!
The best part about Texas?
Is I don’t live there

(13) Radiohead - "Burn the Witch"

Love how this song builds
Tension’s so high at the end
By the way, I’m white

(14) Against Me! - "333"

Gaslight Anthem song?
Nope! Fakes me out every time
Let’s get angsty now

(15) Tove Lo - "Cool Girl"

Mean girls are the best
The name “Tove” is really cool
Wish I was Swedish
