Finally catching up with the Top30 that i didn't comment on so far
Sorry for being so much behind! 30. Lena - If i wasn’t your daughter
29. Charlie Puth - Attention
28. Niall Horan - Flicker
27. Lana Del Rey - Love
Great start into the Top30.
Loved Lena's "If I Wasn't Your Daughter" and i'm still mad at them how they handled it. This could have been a #1 hit in Germany yet they basically did NOTHING after the release and sudden success on iTunes
But 2017 seemed like the year of 'wasting songs with huge hit potential' as there were several other cases (for example "The Cure" by Gaga...).
"Attention" is good. A shame on me how i never really cared for it when it was 'hot', i basically only got into it lately so maybe i'll get even more into it when he finally releases the album. I'm still having a little crush on him
"Flicker" is nice, but he has better stuff, similar case with Lana, as i really enjoy "Love" but it's far from being my favorite song on "Lust For Life".
25. Niall Horan & Maren Morris - Seeing blind24. Miley Cyrus - Malibu
23. Ariana Grande - One last time
Here it is: My favorite song by Niall! They MUST push "Seeing Blind" as the next single this year! Fingers crossed!
Love the others two. "One Last Time" became a classic in Ariana's discography, even though it's for all the wrong reasons. I already loved it when it was originally released and while the vid got so many negative critics, i also always enjoyed it. Her partner in the vid was playing a main role in 'Victorious' as well (that teen series where she played a main role as well and made her popular) and they weren't really together, though everyone knew they belong together, so it was sweet to see them being together in the video <3
20. Camila Cabello featuring Young Thug - Havana
17. LP - No witness16. Lady Gaga - The cure
Never was a huge fan of “Havana” tbh but the album release this year made me realize it’s not even as weak as I thought it is. I still prefer “Never Be The Same” and “Crying In The Club” though.
Thanks for the shout out on "No Witness" <3 I'm glad you enjoyed that FSC entry so much and it was so cool to see this being pushed as a proper single last year. A shame she's still a one hit wonder these days, as this was definitely another awesome tune that deserved so much attention!
“The Cure” is the best in this group for me. Typical, carefree Gaga pop song 15. Marina Kaye – Something
14. Ed Sheeran - Castle on the hill
13. Martin Garrix & Dua Lipa - Scared to be lonely
12. Niall Horan - Too much to ask
Marina <3 Still so happy how much you enjoyed this song and that she was able to score an even bigger hit than “Homeless”!
The other three tracks are good, too, though not among my absolute faves of 2017.
