#17 | LANA DEL REY FEAT. THE WEEKND | LUST FOR LIFE
.

I think with the names involves this could have been even better but I still adore the song. The chorus is heavenly and their voices compliment each other perfectly.

#16 | MARTIN GARRIX FEAT. DUA LIPA | SCARED TO BE LONELY
.
Image
Dua's voice was perfect for this song. The breakdown is really nice and when Dua's high notes are added over the top it just sounds so beautiful.

I'm really surprised but pleased to see Disconnect charting in so many places, and highly! Also here for Rita and double Dua!

#15 | RUTH B. | DANDELIONS
.
Image
With a melody crafted by God himself, this song is impossible to ignore. This could have been a massive hit if it was pushed by Spotify. Kind of reminds of Alessia Cara but good.

#14 | JACK RIVER | FOOL'S GOLD
.

I actually discovered this song when I was out shopping believe it or not. The chorus is epic and explosive and catchy and just amazing. Incredible alt-pop song.

#13 |LANY | SUPER FAR
.
Image
I actually surprised myself with how many times I played this song but there is just something so hypnotic and catchy about the chorus that it demands multiple listens. The vocals are definitely not incredible but the production and beat really lift the song to something which deserves a Top 20 placing.

#12 | BLANCHE | CITY LIGHTS
.
Image
Every year, theres always a track from Eurovision that makes my countdown. This year my favourite was Belgium. Anyone who knows my tastes could have predicted this would be my winner from Day 1 and infact many of my friends guessed correctly who I wanted to win. With vocals slightly reminiscent of Queen Lana and an awesome synthy production, this is one of the best songs to ever grace the Eurovision stage.

#11 | SHALLOWS | DRIVE AWAY
.
Image
In 2016, the Shallows released one of my favourite tracks of that year 'Summer Sucks'. Last year they put out 3 more songs, one of which makes it to #11 on my countdown. I absolutely adore the vocals on their tracks so I'm a bit of sucker for whatever they put out and this was no exception.

#10 | LANA DEL REY | LOVE
.
Image
Lana's triumphant return came as quite a surprise to me back in February as I wasn't expecting new music till later in the year. I instantly fell in love with the song like pretty much every Lana song. It has Lana's trademark cinematic feel to it whilst reflecting on the more positive aspects of life (how un-Lana of her!)

#9 | LORDE | HOMEMADE DYNAMITE
.
Image
With a very unfortunate title, this song was never going to be the big hit that it deserved to be. Being of the standout tracks on the album, it was a shoe-in for a Top 10 placement. The production and melody are so interesting, especially the abrupt change up during the chorus which somehow works brilliantly.

#8 | IMAGINE DRAGONS | THUNDER
.
Image
I remember listening to this for the first time and just being so happy because that was the moment I knew I'd enjoy the album so much more than Smoke + Mirrors. This song is everything I wanted from Imagine Dragons. The production is exactly what I love in songs and whilst some find the distorted vocals annoying, I absolutely love it and think they make the song. If sung by Taylor, it would have fit pretty well on reputation.

#7 | SELENA GOMEZ + KYGO | IT AIN'T ME
.
Image
Becoming one of the biggest singles of the year (and rightly so), this song gave Selena her first proper global hit. It's kind of generic and is definitely nothing brand new for the EDM scene but the song really is something special. The effect placed on Selena's vocals makes the song sound so beautiful and dreamy. That final chorus is also everything.

#6 | SNAKEHIPS FEAT. MØ | DON'T LEAVE
.
Image
Why the hell wasn't this massive? MØ's vocals are absolutely incredible and are perfect for this song. The chorus sounds so huge and production is top notch. It has all the elements of a smash hit.

good to see Lana Del Rey in the Top 10. "LOVE" is the highlight for me on "Lust For Life" to be quite honest. :oops:
"Homemade Dynamite" is nice, too. Good to see that we place "Thunder" at the almost same position! :P
I like "It Ain't Me".

#5 | HAYLEY KIYOKO | SLEEPOVER
.
Image
The anthem about being stuck in the friend zone. If your current crush is your best friend then look no further for a song to perfect some up your thoughts. With a really unique production, the whole song is so chill yet so hypnotic and catchy. An absolute favourite of mine.

#4 | LOREEN | '71 CHARGER
.
Image
Loreen very rarely disappoints and 2017 was no exception. Loreen is no stranger to my countdowns after making the Top 5 in 2015 with I'm In It With You. In a similar vein, this song showcases her hauntingly beautiful vocals over a stunning guitar riff that is something reminisent of Lana's Ultraviolence. The last minute or so gives me goosebumps every time.

Homemade Dynamite was a great tune, shame it didn't get more of a push her in the UK
