Better call Matty with the good hair...
We can all agree that 2016 kinda sucked, but at least the music was good. In fact, it might have been the only redeeming thing.
So we can totally understand why #LyricsThatMade2016 started trending last night on Twitter. Fans were sharing some of their favourite lyrics and there were some absolute gems.

- The 1975, 'A Change Of Heart'.
We could have picked a lyric at random from I Like It When You Sleep... such is it's lyrical prowess. But this short line, in which Healy manages to burns his ex and make a wry comment on the vapidness of social media is one of his best.
- Ariana Grande, 'Side to Side'.
We're still blushing about this line tbh.
- Skepta, 'Text Me Back'.
UK grime hero Skepta shows his softer side on this ode to his lover who waits patiently at home while he's out touring (at least, that's what he hopes!)
- Death Team, 'Jump'.
Ever left your partner because they're boring? Well this is the song for you.
- Alessia Cara, 'Wild Things'.
In 2016 needed a 'New Americana', then this was it.
- Lady Gaga, 'Joanne'.
Written in honour of her aunt, Joanne, who died before she was born. Gaga showed real heart and depth on this, the title-track from her latest album.
- Glass Animals, 'Life Itself'.
Quite the burn, and it's even worse when you consider that lead-singer Dave Bayley is talking about his mother.
- Kevin Abstract, 'American Boyfriend'.
Abstract doesn't do subtly, and thank god for that or else we wouldn't get such beautifully jarring lyrics like this.
- Carly Rae Jepsen, 'Store'.
It's one of those lyrics that is just so stupid, it's actually kind of genius.
- Bruno Mars, 'Versace On The Floor'.
The whole thing is so ridiculously absurd that I'm afraid it was love on first listen. I feel moist just thinking about it.
- Beyoncé, 'Don't Hurt Yourself'.
The angriest Beyoncé has ever sounded. So angry, in fact, that we immediately went bald.
- Rihanna, 'Consideration'.
In this lyric Rihanna proclaims herself so powerful, talented and successful she can turn any song into gold. And she's right.
- The 1975, 'Loving Someone'.
Comparing your own intellect to a crumbling economy of a foreign country might be the most pretentious lyric of 2016 but it's also one of its best.
- Kanye West, 'Famous'.
Whether you like it or not, this lyric dominated 2016 and gave rise to the infamous Snakes on a Phone scandal. Damn, son.
- Panic! At The Disco, 'Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time'.
The bachelor might have died but he certainly went out with a bang (and some nice heels).
