Wished is also very good, yes. But at the time I hadn't heard of them.

353 different songs made it this year into Thistle List. Almost one for every day, you could say. But what were the most succesful ones? You get an overview from now until new year. Today 100 -81 and already we see one ex-number 1. How that's possible? She Drew the Gun was already in the list in 2016 and scored a limited amount of points this year. It also immediatly clear that a song had to be at least 6 weeks in the list to make it to the top 100. Quite long if you know that the longest stay was 13 weeks... The current no 1 (Sufjan Stevens) even only made it to number 183, but we will see him again next year, no doubt about that.

Almost every song is at least a good one.
Some are great.
And some are even brilliant

Of the first bunch, I probably expected L.A.Salami to appear a little bit later.

Between 40 en 21 we find ten ex-nr. 1's. Among them the highest Belgian band: dirk. If new year was one week later, they sure would have ended in the top 20 because the band is now still at nr. 13...

Methyl Ethel. Gengahr, Torgeir Waldemar, Widowspeak are all great.
Declan McKenna and Morrissey have potential to be even better.
I gotta admit CocoRosie went way over my head

BLOXX had a cracking year, two songs in top 20.
Most of these are really good, I mean, Aldous Harding, Mark Lanegan, Manchester Orchestra, Pumarosa, Phoebe Bridgers, The War On Drugs etc.
Sir Sly's ''High'' is catchy. ''Ain't Afraid Of Dying'' is a fine song as well.
Alt-J's ''3WW'' was a miss for me.
London Grammar never really delivered for me personally.
Happy for Portugal.The Man scoring a huge hit this year.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Beginner's Luck

Not really feeling it as much as I should.

Dream Wife - Hey Heartbreaker

I confused this with Dream Lake I've featured in my yearly 2017 chart recently.

It was to be expected: Haley Heynderickx takes over the top op the list. Further down there's a whole lot of shaking going on and we again have five new songs (could have been much more this week, with a lot of nice singles that came our way).

Great Lake Swimmers - The Talking Wind

BLOXX - Novocaine

Mugwump - No Trepidation

The Boxer Rebellion - Here I Am

Hero Fisher - Lonely

Bryde - To Be Brave

Hello Marcthemike,

It seems like we have a common interest in the more alternative/indie songs, although we usually just seem to pick different ones for our (hit)lists!

Ladybird, Marmozets, Dream Wife and The Boxer Rebellion are currently in my (YouTube) bubbling under list: Ralphy's Potential Possibilities (Bubbling Under)

We seem to have one more song in common besides Tonya Harding: Freak - Everyone's the same!
