Again, I must point out that it credits "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" to Little Richard even though he never recorded that song. I'd assume they meant the Larry Williams recording and miscredited it, probably just because the title is similar to "Good Golly Miss Molly".

Some songs got on from the 2015 lists like "Blackstar" and "4 Degrees" and will benefit from more appearances in the 2016 lists. I imagine some songs like "Bad and Boujee" (ugh) and possibly "Redbone" will do the same when the 2017 EOY lists arrive.
