"#169 Infinity Meter - Bleeding Inside - mad and noisy song"

Not quite as described, seems sedate until the last part.
I don't really know what it is...Something similar to what John Maus does.

#159 Alex Cameron - Runnin' Outta Luck - that dude got Brandon Flowers as a co-songwriter and a backing singer, so he must have done something right
#158 Public Service Broadcasting feat. James Dean Bradfield - Turn No More - unfamiliar settings for JDB's vocals
#157 Moss - I Don't See You Trying - seasoned band
#156 Edda Magnason - Noises - a dreamy pop song from Sweden
#155 Airiel - This Is Permanent - relatively big names on the shoegazing scene

Love the one by Arch Enemy, actually introduced me to them. I prefer „The Eagle Flies Alone“ though :)

Their new stuff is so good and they get some extra points for a charismatic frontwoman. I hope they'll have a semi-hit once (without making compromises), because they kinda have a base.
UK top 40 album is a great result for a metal band these das

Bubbling under 140-131
#140 Daði Freyr – Hvað með það? - Icelandic Eurovision 2017 selection runner-up, in the process of doing a complete U-turn from the most disliked song initially to a cult favourite. Datarock-ish.

#138 Widowspeak - Dog - dreamy vibes
#137 Jamala - Сумую - ESC-2016 winner with a mixture of soul and electronic pop
#136 Cooper - Back On Track - promising pop-punk/psychobilly debut
#135 Noga Erez - Pity - this Israeli artist with catchy electropop vibes
#134 Pale Waves - Television Romance - i can't remember goth imagery being so relevant for a pop-rock act since Shakespear's Sister
#133 The Van T's - Fresh Meat - a very good, raw song with a particular attitude
#132 Organek - Wiosna - catchy indie, with some traces of punk from Poland
#131 Pavey Ark - Hidden Hills - sophisticated indie folk song, only just about 350 views, disgrace

found this surprisingly good

I already posted 'Frapp and one of your others i'm about o post today...

Out of interest: are you changing the chart as you go to include songs from after Christmas Day? I notice the Cooper song is a late number one.

I kinda settled most of the places, but left 7 places for the ''after Christmas songs'' in case some of them really caught my eye.

Bubbling under 130-121
#130 Thomas Dybdahl - Just a Little Bit - probably this is the closest to what I can label ''indie soul''
#129 Salvador Sobral - Ready for love again (Live) - ESC-2017 winner giving us all his full vocal and improv potential
#128 Антитіла - TDME - the music video helped me to recognize the brilliance of this song
#127 DDZI - Vivi dentro me - italian prog-rock, what can be more exciting?
#126 Honey. - Saab 900 - vaporwave or not? you decide
#125 Ball Park Music - The Perfect Life Does Not Exist - the year ended on a high note for this Australian band
#124 boy pablo - Everytime - if Mac De Marco decided to make his own version of Take That :lol: the music video is goofy it actually turns sweet and innocent
#123 Ali Barter - Please Stay - Ali's not the first time on my annual list, but if ''Hypercolour'' was a huge success, then ''Please Stay'' is just a very decent song
#122 Clans - Glendale - surprisingly this is an american band
#121 Land Of Talk - This Time - great song

Bubbling under 120-111
#120 Monarchy - Hula Hoop 8000 - the pop that should be on the radio, 80s inspired
#119 Danny Leggett - Who Was I Back Then - great vocals in this folk song
#118 Alessio Bondì - Di cu si - this is almost twee, a catchy folk song
#117 Graeme James - News From Nowhere - we're mixing folk music and tough weather conditions in this one
#116 Toro y Moi - No Show - one of the highlight in the Urban music for me, Toro y Moi still delivers the dreamy R&B
#115 Crimer - Hours - one of the breakout acts of the year for me, Swiss synthpop band, Tansike must be proud, it's like a different version of Asbjorn
#114 Phoebe Bridgers - Motion Sickness - moody and mellow song from Phoebe, interesting lyrics and character development
#113 Cataldo - Photograph - indie pop
#112 The Biebers – Vár a Holnap - catchy Hungarian electropop
#111 Dog In The Snow - Magic - dreaming is okay

Bubbling under 110-101
#110 Trad.Attack! - Kallimale / To My Dearest - Eesti folk, closer to traditional folk

#108 Märvel - Angela - something closer to classic rock :lol:
#107 Akere feat. Louisa - Deep Waters - a beautiful electronic song
#106 Lupa J - Keep Back - cold, yet catchy synthpop from Australia
#105 Jay-Jay Johanson - Paranoid - keeping his almost sophisti-pop cool

#103 Luna Amară - Nu știu, nu iau, nu sunt - Romanian alternative rock
#102 Bahroma - Марина - alternative rock, the chorus sounds a bit like ''Sex On Fire''
#101 Paige Bea - Pick Up Your Heart - a piece of brilliant pop with some slight trip-hop traces

#95 Rajan Takaa - Soittorasia
Finnish punk-rock music, what did you expect?
#94 Ásgeir - Unbound
Another entry, another Icelandic act, no surprises here. A decent indie folk/electronic song.

This one didn't get into my daily chart because I discovered this only just at the very end of December. Last minute, world music.
#92 Leyya - Drumsolo
Austrian pop, a very exciting and juicy sound.
#91 Parekh & Singh - Ghost
Indian indie sensation here.

Hi heppolo :D

Just wanted to highlight this track and thank you for this discovery. So at least that's one song you can look out for in my top 100 of 2017. I can exclusively reveal Friðrik Dór is higher than #98. :wink:

Thank you for appreciating it.
I hope you also checked other Friðrik Dór's songs, they're amazing
this year had more than 3000 songs charted in my daily edition, so being 98 out of 3000 songs in question is not too shabby :lol:

80-76
#80 Julia Marcell - Tesko
A bit of sophisti-pop about capitalism/love and everything in-between.
#79 Meszecsinka - Könnyű | Easy
Indie-folk melodrama from Hungary.
#78 Van Holzen - Schüsse
German indie rock here, guitar sounds well in place in this one.
#77 Enter Shikari - Live Outside
Seasoned post-hardcore vets turned to electronic rock and it wasn't really bad.
#76 Kirin J Callinan - Bravado
Kirin sings on top of his voice, like he really means it, the catchy synth-led song is an introspective piece. The way he almost whispers Goodbye at the end of the song makes you think he really means it.

Italian indie rock. This song kicks in right from get go.

Good electronica from this Israeli act.
#68 Arthur Yoria - WishList
A brilliant example of singer-songwriter stuff. Very catchy and charismatic.

Their new music wasn't a letdown. Synthpop song, sensual whisper-style verses. A song with a ''quiet-loud-quiet'' structure.
#66 Mando Diao - Shake
This song is really catchy. 8-)
