    Great presentation! I didn't read the poll question properly, so I went with a single pick - SZA - to take home top honours.

    "Kissing Strangers" is criminally underrated! Deserved more love on the charts and on the forum. "Love So Soft" is uptempo soul-pop at its 2017 best.

    "Chanel" drips of Frank's signature brand of cool.

    voted for Lana, Kelela and SZA in the poll, and I think SZA will top the chart!

    out of the above songs, Coachella is quite good, it gets unfair hate from fans I think

    I always thought “Kissing Strangers” was uber catchy and just as good as their big hit. Completely agree, Kelly really knocked it out of the park with that one, although I appreciate it now more than when it was first released.
    It really does, doesn’t it?

    I agree, I loved it when it first came out, but I think I overplayed it.

    Kelly C is my favourite from the first batch, more I like in the second, Zayn and Zara but most pleased to see Fickle Friends!

    Yes I like that cute presso!

    I got into Love So Soft a lot more with the Dave Aude mix.

    Good to see more Flame love.

    "Groupie Love," "Shape of You," "Dusk Till Dawn," and "Flame" are the highlights of the last batch. "Santa's Coming for Us" is a bit below Sia's usual high standard, but I did enjoy the title track, "Everyday Is Christmas".

    I enjoy the two Zayn songs, but they are not amongst his best work.
    'Flame' is a cute pop song.

    Glad to see you like so many! Fickle Friends would've been much higher if I had gotten into the song earlier in the year.

    Thank you! I agree about the Dave Aude version - it was the same for me.

    Great to see you like so many tracks so far! I agree - most of her music would normally chart higher, but 2017 has really been subpar for Sia.

    Definitely not, 'PILLOWTALK' was in the top 20 last year, if I remember correctly.

    i like the presentation a lot the Tinashe entry is awful, but most of the songs are pretty decent. Dusk Til Dawn took awhile to grow on me but is one of Zayn's best songs. I hope his album comes soon. I voted for SZA, Calvin and Lana in your poll

    I felt the same way about Zayn & Sia's duet. I have a feeling he'll release this summer!

    I was 'Doing Me' was so childish and disappointing after the incredible 'My Hood' and 'Chill Out' - i'm sure RAY BLK has better up her sleeve!

    Slow Hands is amazing, and way better than I expected from Niall especially after the bland 'This Town'. 'When Ur Sober' is great as well!

    Gorillaz - Ascsencion (Feat Vince Staples) - Really liked this, I tend to like most of their songs though, Vince sounds good.

    168. TIEKS ft/ Chaka Khan & Popcaan - Say a Prayer - Ooh like Chaka, need to hear it.
    153. Rina Sawayama - Cyber Stockholm Syndrome - Quite nice.

    I prefer the list format, much easier to quote.
