Haha... well, "Bad Liar" was definitely the best out of the four for me. It didn't click with me immediately, but it turned out to be a great song from her. It's so untypical, and its video is simply brilliant IMO. A shame it never grew on you, but at least you enjoyed the other songs :)

Glad you enjoy these... especially the latter, which was such a big surprise for me and should have been a hit for Noah.

Well i absolutely hate XXXTENTACION but i have to admit his parts on "Again" are actually really good. Similar case with Noah... :oops:

Haha, sounds interesting! It was actually similar with me. I liked it at first, got over it quickly, started to enjoy it again due to the video, got over it again, and finally i started to love it! :lol:

Poll results for the Singles Year-End Charts

Kerli easily took the lead with 7 votes (50%), followed by Ed Sheeran with 2 votes (14% votes).

Kesha, Lindsey Stirling, Marina Kaye, Selena Gomez and Zara Larsson all got 1 vote (7%), while no one voted for Halsey, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa and someone else.

I'll reveal the next two positions later today, with the Top2 coming later this week, so let's see if someone predicted correctly - and if the majority was right or not!

.

In other news, i'd like to reveal a little 'teaser' in form of the points of this years Top10:

Spoiler:
686
665
592
528
445
433
416
413
406
405


The Top2 has a big lead to the others, while the gap between #4 and #5 is quite big as well.
Despite that lead, 2017 has the least successful #1 since the introduction of my weekly Top40 in 2013. The lowest scoring #1 so far was Kerli's "Feral Hearts", which topped the Year-End Charts 2016 with 900 points. Here are all #1s from the Year-End Charts since 2013:

2017 - tba - 686 points
2016 - "Feral Hearts" by Kerli - 900 points
2015 - "Élan" by Nightwish - 1'246 points
2014 - "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran - 1'056 points
2013 - "Crystallize" by Lindsey Stirling - 1'158 points

4. Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You
Image
Chartrun: *1*-1-2-3-5-4-6-10-5-9-5-7-13-15-20-30-33-Out / 17w
Certification: PLATINUM

There were two huge smashes in 2017 all over the world, and while one of them never even made my weekly Top40 (“Despacito”), the other was a big hit on my chart as well, and that was Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You”. The track was released as a lead single of his third album “÷” alongside “Castle On The Hill”, and right from the start it immediately topped the charts all over the world and even stayed there for several weeks – same on my charts! It was not only the first big hit of 2017, but it was also able to stay high on the YTD chart during the year, and ends up at #4 on my Year-End Charts now, which marks the second time the sympathetic singer-songwriter makes my Year-End Top10, following “I See Fire”, which was the most successful single of 2014.

The opinions on this are very divided, and my thoughts about this are also divided. On one side, I have to say this is pop at its best, incredibly catchy, very well made and produced. On the other side, it’s far from being Ed’s best song, and it’s very calculated and probably even too generic. Still, this deserved to be a big hit for him and he really hit the Zeitgeist with it.

“Shape Of You” is Ed’s fourth and final appearance on the countdown, following “Castle On The Hill” (#50), “Galway Girl” (#43) and “Perfect” (#38), which means all official singles of the album made the Top50.

3. Kesha – Praying
Image
Chartrun: *1*-4-2-3-3-1-6-8-13-15-20-23-21-22-17-17-21-24-22-25-26-32-35-31- / 24w
Certification: PLATINUM

There were several comebacks in the music business in 2017, but one of them blew all others away: Kesha! The singer finally returned with new music after years of battling and struggling, and that break was actually worth it, as she’s returned stronger than ever. “Praying” was the first release of her third studio album “Rainbow” and was Kesha’s very first ballad with a proper release. It’s very well sung, and while she never hit that one note live, she’s still delivering them live vocals for this. The lyrics are really strong and its message is simply beautiful, powerful but also sad in a way. Its staying power on the US Hot 100 was incredible to follow, but I still think this should have done a lot more commercially. Critically, here’s hope Kesha may get her very first Grammy ever as she’s nominated in the Best Pop category.

“Praying” became Kesha’s fifth number one hit on my weekly chart and with 24 weeks in the Top40, it’s one of only three songs that spent more than 20 weeks on the charts, with the other two being still unrevealed. Its longevity made the song her most successful entry ever on my weekly chart, surpassing the success of “Die Young” (2012), “Take It Off” (2010), “TiK ToK” (2009) and “We R Who We R” (2010), her other Platinum certified singles. It follows “Woman” (#57) as her second entry on the countdown, and third chart entry in 2017 overall, as she was featured on Macklemore’s “Good Old Days” (#194).

I need to catch up with my comments. :oops:

I agree with Adam's comment above. :lol: Shape of you to this day remains one of those songs where i didn't understand why it was so successful. I know you didn't like Despacito but for me the Luis Fonsi track had more about the song and seemed less calculated and more genuine.

Mind you, i'd still say Perfect is Ed's most calculated song. :P

Aww, so happy for Kesha getting that top 3 end of year position.

Oh wow that means by process of elimination i know what your top 2 songs are. :wink: I think its obvious which track is gonna be #1 but i'd be absolutely thrilled if the other song got there instead. :D

Thank you! :) Everyday owns a definitely stunning melodic line, especially in the not that rich in lyrics chorus. I would classify it as influence from the electro house genre, because the trap has this resonating bass in the main theme an octave or two higher. Ariana covers a wide vocal range in this song, not the same for Future but this fact has its explanation. :D To sum up, the main reason why I like this single is that it sounds cool. :D About Lindsey - I don't follow her much. She took part in the single "Dying For You" by Otto Knows. For me, this is her best featuring.

I get Lost Girl's most instrumental-focused appeal, but the song doesn't have that magic quality that her best instrumental-only tracks have.

"Shape of You" is quality stuff, and a much-needed change of pace from Ed's more slow-driven ballads. "Praying" is good, but I don't think it's quite up there with Kesha's best.

This probably comes down to the fact that you're listening to a wider range of songs than ever before, so the big hits have more competition.
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

Thanks for catching up! I'm really behind with everyone else's countdown, so i hope time allows it for me to catch up with other countdowns asap as well :oops:

Well Ed was at a point where he could have released whatever it wanted, it would have been huge i guess, so SOY was already a big hit even before people heard it. It was a very catchy song in the end which helped a lot, and he also released it at the right time...

Hmm... yeah, there's something there. He definitely knows what's successful right now :lol:

She really delivered an amazing comeback and i already saw her position on your countdown, which made me really happy as well :D

And i think you're right about those two songs :wink: To be fair, it shouldn't be a really big surprise for people who follow my chart every now and then as two songs really stood out... one at the beginning of the year, and another basically the whole year... :oops: I'm not too sure if it really is that obvious though. Which one do you think will be #1?

Aw. I knew it for Kesha but didn't know you also don't feel Ed :( I hope the Top2 has some better songs for you then :)

Not surprised you like her song tbh. I'm glad she came back with such a strong song and didn't chose to go the obvious route with a dance-pop song.

Well, it's obviously not as amazing as "Crystallize" or even something like "Elements" or "Take Flight" for me, but definitely the best instrumental song on "Brave Enough" and probably even in my personal Top5 of her instrumental tracks :)

Glad you like these two... quite sad to hear this about "Praying" though, as it's one of her best tracks ever for me :o :oops:

Yes, definitely! Each year set a new record in how many songs entered my weekly chart. However, there were 'only' five songs more in 2017 than in 2016, so the gap there wasn't that big. But i really felt like that one real big hit was missing in 2017 for me.
