In the thread "the best songs ever" there have been some great 4T songs posted, but that thread doesn't focus exclusively on 4T songs. We definitely need a thread for that here, because 4T music is the future. Since we're currently in the 4T, the music of our current era should be represented here. Here is a place to post the best songs from 2008 onward.
I'll start by posting a currently popular song, "Can't Stop the Feeling!" by Justin Timberlake. This song is considered to be one of the "songs of the summer" for summer 2016.



I have never heard a JT song that I liked. If anything, he sounds more like the other Justin here. Maybe I like it OK, maybe... at least in some parts like "but just dance dance dance". Maybe he's improving; one can hope. But JT is definitely way over-rated. This song is in the same uplifting positive 4T tone as "Happy"

Good idea though! I didn't want to invade Rag's thread further when today's poppy stuff doesn't fit on a rock collection.

I only posted one 4T song per year on the best songs ever thread, and there have been some others I like. I think I mentioned this one:





The singer and writer on this (Rude by Magic) was also a writer/arranger on my fave, Pray by Justin Bieber, and several others of his songs. Marry that girl! Almost a billion views!
I think we had a thread like this one on the old forum, so I decided to create one just like it here.

That's why I put it on there.

Also do not pass up the mash up artists of the 4T who are trying out mixing different sounds.

DJ Surge-N
DJ Earworm




A 4T song from New Zealand during our world cup victory. Kia kaha!!!


JB-Company



Best version of the most popular One Direction song:





Alex Goot and friends. What Makes You Beautiful, from 2012; the best 4T year so far.
We got lucky in pop, with Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams



Here's Halsey's most popular song, "New Americana":



The best song of the 4T, and by a considerable margin (2010-2011). I reprise my picks for 2011-2015 here, but then post another song or two by the same artists in my next posts.





2012: Owl City/Carly Rae Jepson, Good Time https://youtu.be/H7HmzwI67ec
2013: One Direction, Best Song Ever https://youtu.be/o_v9MY_FMcw
2014: Pharrell Williams, Happy https://youtu.be/y6Sxv-sUYtM
2015: Justin Bieber, What Do You Mean https://youtu.be/DK_0jXPuIr0
The Story of My Life is good, but I enjoy this rockin' goodie by 1D:





The cover by Alex Goot and Friends is my pick for "That's What Makes you Beautiful," great song posted above.
AC/DC Rock or Bust World Tour 2015-201?






AC/DC from the 2T to now.  Awesome.


The young inheritors = Airbourne .  Man good shit from the Aussies.




In honor of Michelle Obama, who tonight said, "when they go low, we go high," I offer you, once again, Justin Bieber!

i love the vid to this

and this one

Americans have probably never heard of Aldous Harding. She is from my country. Like Broods.
Pharrell Williams, "Freedom"





V1
Hold on to me
Don't let me go
Who cares what they see?
Who cares what they know?
Your first name is Free
Last name is Dom
Cause you still believe in where we're from
Man's red flower
It's in every living thing
Mind use your power
Spirit use your wings

CHORUS
Freedom! x3
Freedom x3

V2
Hold on to me
Ooh don't let me go
The cheetahs need to eat
Run antelope
Your first name is King
Last name is Dom
Cause you still believe in everyone
When a baby first breathes
When night sees sunrise
When the whale hops the sea
When man recognizes

CHORUS
Freedom! x3
Freedom x2
Breathe in

V3
We are from heat
The Electric one
Does it shock you to see, he left us the sun?
The atoms in the air
Organisms in the sea
The Sun, and yes, man
Are made of the same things

Freedom! x3
Freedom x5
As I posted before, this version of the song Justin Bieber is "proudest of" is better than the recorded version from Believe, which was already at least #3 on my list of favorites by him.





It'll be OK if he goes bald, because he can always wear that baseball cap backwards and look as hip as ever Smile
