#3| TAYLOR SWIFT | ...READY FOR IT?
.
Image
I was majorly disappointed with LWYMMD so I am very much thankfulforreadyforit. This should have definitely been the lead single and I will never forgive Taylor and her team for releasing this two (!!) weeks after the first single, in turn sabotaging this poor song. The production is a little jarring and overly loud but the pre-chorus is so heavenly that it elevates the song to pop perfection tier.

#2| SELENA GOMEZ FEAT. GUCCI MANE | FETISH
.

I replayed the tiny snippet we had of this SO many times and when the full song dropped I loved it just as much as I had imagined. This song is the epitome and the perfect example of the music Selena makes best. The production is trap perfection and the chorus whilst not a club banger is one of the catchiest of the year. I am still totally perplexed how this never took off, well, I know that it wasn't pushed on radio or added to any decent Spotify playlists but the reasoning behind THAT part is mind-boggling. The styling of the whole single is brilliant too, it's a shame the video didn't take the concept and run with it. Atleast we got a flawless single cover.

#1| LADY GAGA | THE CURE
.
Image
Well, here it is! My favourite single of 2017. Now we all know how disappointed I was with Joanne so the thought of Gaga putting out my favourite single of the year barely 6 months later is pretty hilarious. This is the music that I wish Joanne had been. It is current whilst still maintaining that classic Gaga sound. I'll always have a soft spot for Gaga because she was the first artist I properly stanned for and her old music makes me a really nostalgic so to have something that is even remotely close to The Fame/ The Fame Monster days just made me instantly weak at the knees.

good top 3, The Cure is a tad bit basic, but still more enjoyable than "organic Gaga", Fetish is one of Selena's best and Ready for It? is pretty catchy. what were her team thinking releasing this so soon after the lead single? does not make any sense whatsoever

Flawless top three. I do agree that The Cure was a nice glimpse of what a current Gaga might look like. I'd liek to think that she could go in that direction for her next album, but who knows.

#2 | SELENA GOMEZ FEAT. GUCCI MANE | FETISH
#1 | LADY GAGA | THE CURE

Of course The cure isn't Lady Gaga's best song ever. I don't think it was ever intended to be, and that's one of the reasons why i love it. :lol: I share your opinion, this is the Gaga i want. Not the pretentious try hard who fails miserably. :P The cure is still amazing imo and i love that Lady Gaga went back to basics with this song.

Love seeing Lena making your countdown. If i wasn't your daughter ended up being one of those songs that completely caught me off guard. I always thought Loreen would be former eurovison winner who would go on and top my chart with a new single, yet Lena beat her to it in fine style.

Even though its middle of the table i'm so happy that Symphony got some love. It's easily one of the best unashamed pop songs of 2017 and imo a worthy #1 of the year in my chart even if Rita Ora did run a close second (and Katy a fairly close third). :P

The girls delivered. Shame that award shows and summer festivals are failing to recognise the amazing work of so many female artists. :roll: :evil:

As expected, lots of awesome tunes <3
"The Cure" at #1 is slightly unexpected to me but still a well deserved YEC #1. A shame Gaga didn't do more promo or went with a re-release of "Joanne" with "The Cure" on it. This could have been such a big comeback to charts success...
