Frank Ocean, 'Thinkin Bout You'

4/50

The year's deepest love song won us all with the subtle gender-flipping in the opening verse, but the rest of the lyrics are even better. "Since you think I don't love you, I just thought you were cute, that's why I kissed you," Ocean sings. The leap into aching falsetto a moment later is as universal as melody gets.
