The Top Ten

1 7 rings - Ariana Grande 7 rings - Ariana Grande

Takes "My Favorite Things", turns into an RnB song equally celebrating commercialism in its most provocative way ("happiness is the same price as red bottoms") and friendship, and it not only works, it's extremely addictive and beyond cool.
Fun fact: despite this being a hit song over here, only about four people in Austria other than me actually know the movie the melody this song is based on originates from, even less have heard the soundtrack often enough to recognize the tune.

2 DODI - Shindy DODI - Shindy

Shindy's "Drama" is one of my most anticipated albums this year. His first single after his departure from Bushido already is a great start, musically and commercially, being his first number 1 single in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

3 La Passion - Gigi D'Agostino La Passion - Gigi D'Agostino

One of the best italo disco / eurodance song. The constantly shifting key keeps it exciting.

4 Roundtable Rival - Lindsey Stirling

After having listened to this song, I came to the conclusion that Lindsey Stirling and Annika Ljungberg (Mary Joe) need to collaborate. Desperately. The world needs it.

5 Bobby Brown Goes Down - Frank Zappa

Fun fact: the third verse and final chorus is based on my biography.

6 I Love It - Lil Pump & Kanye West

"Harverd Dropout" is minimum depth and maximum fun. Of course, this very song has been around longer, but still, the entire thing is just awesome no brainer feel good music. The Scooter of trap.

7 Engel - Ben & Gim

Listen to it. Now. It's on YouTube, you should be able to find it. You won't regret it.

8 Don't You Realize - Vanilla Ninja

I wish they would come back, although I am very sure they won't. But there is not a single other band out there that has this one feel to it, the mix of cinematic epicness and punk girl attitude. In their best moments, they were equally Nightwish and Hole.

9 The Spirit of the Hawk - Rednex

Fun fact: "...Farm Out! " is the overall weaker of the two official Rednex albums (there's a rare Mary Joe album called "The Cotton Eye Joe Show" though, but it's almost impossible to find), although not bad (after all, it contains this great song and "Hold Me For A While"), but the cover is so much pleasing to look at compared to "Sex & Violins" that I seriously consider buying it a second time just to put the "Sex & Violins" CD inside. Not because it would be outstanding - it's average and unspectacular - but because for frog's sake, it at least doesn't show the faces of the band members photoshopped into a bowl filled with urine!

10 Blut sehen (Die Vergessenen, Pt. 2) - Casper

One of the last pure hip hop songs by Casper in a time when he already fully departed into rock, this song about a youth that feels the need to rebel simply for being part of something big feels frighteningly aggressive, like a mob coming at you, ready to tear you down!
