Best Songs of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Ravens - Mount Eerie Ravens - Mount Eerie

I honestly can't see the appeal, I mean, I like the tragic lyrics, but this guy really can't sing and bores me. There are sad songs out there that are way better mainly because the singer's vocals have more feeling in them. Sorry. - DCfnaf

Guys, I Feel It Coming is good, but we really need a hipster song to be #1. - djpenquin999

What is this song? I can't even find a PROPER music video of it on YouTube! - micahisthebest

2 I Feel It Coming (Feat. Daft Punk) - The Weeknd

Amazing! Daft Punk's production is wonderful and The Weeknd sounds just like Michael Jackson. Seriously, you could have told me this song came out in 1986 and I would have believed you. - Spark_Of_Life

The Weeknd is Amazing and so are Daft Punk

Finally some good modern music just seen the amazing music video as well to this song

Beautiful. Song 🎶 totally fascinatiny

3 DNA. - Kendrick Lamar

There's something that hits as hard as HUMBLE., a song that I already love and give a 5/5, but then there's THIS. Mike WiLL made up for his entire discography (and that's saying a LOT) and then some with a spacious keyboard loop that is just minimalist enough for Kendrick's incredible bars. The song is about Kendrick's quest to clean the reputation of a genre notorious for sex, money, and murder and doesn't really do much to change that. The bars on their own kick ass as well, and his flow is great. Then a beat switch happens after he crams as many syllables as possible, and goes WAY harder against a powerful vocal sample.

Yay this is getting ranked higher and proves I don't have an unpopular opinion on liking this! 6/5 - AlphaQ

This whole album is one of the best I heard this year. - cjWriter1997

Made a great amount of power.

4 Speak to Me - Amy Lee

Another fantastic song. Listen, Amy Lee never disappoints, the girl has an enchanting voice and beautiful music. - DCfnaf

Why is this not in the Top 5 anymore? This has got to be the best song of the year... - DCfnaf

A beautiful song. - Cartoonfan202

Thank you for this amazing gift in 2017 Amy. A beautiful song by the most angelic voice ever. I just hope that you never stop singing :( - mood333

5 Malibu - Miley Cyrus

Hannah Montana is gone, and she will sorely be missed by her fans (I hated the show and was not upset to see her go though). Then Miley Cyrus changed her appearances and wore ridiculous costumes, sexualized her concerts, made disgusting videos, autotuned most of her songs to death (Wrecking Ball and FU are exceptions), and twerked on stage for fame. Once she got on The Voice, she stopped the antics and started transitioning back to country girl Miley Cyrus. She has officially transitioned back to normal. For those of you who still think she's a disgusting and poor role model...please spread the word about this beautiful, heartfelt country pop song. The song is about Miley living in Malibu and directing the song to Liam Hemsworth. The message and lyrics are just beautiful, especially for Miley standards. "I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me/I'd be here writing this song" and "We are just like the waves that flow back and forth/Sometimes I feel like I'm ...more - DCfnaf

This is actually GOOD. She appears to be cleaning up her act. At first when I heard Miley was releasing another song, I was like "oh crap, not another we can't stop." But MY WEAVE WAS SNATCHED. She was actually SANE and CLEAN, not trying too hard to be "sexy." Like I don't mind sexiness, but back in 2013 Miley took it WAYY TOO FAR. As in to the point where it wasn't sexy, it was disturbing and disgusting. But thank goodness she cleaned up her act with this masterpiece

If any of you need evidence as to how I'm NOT Spectrum Pulse, this is it. I don't love this like most people do, it's still lacking in a lot of energy, but it''s nice. Really nice. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

This Is Slow But Fun Castle On The Hill Million Reasons Say U Won't Let Got Could Not Do

6 Sign of the Times - Harry Styles

I'm not a fan of One Direction or Harry Styles but this song is actually good. I feel like it was influenced by Pink Floyd (Maybe some David Bowie too). The drum beats, guitar and just the mood of the song. He actually has a nice voice, which is surprising since he's from One Direction. My faith in new music has been restored. - BrianScott01

So magnificent, his music makes me travel in an another world. How can a human being can be that awesome? My vagina is crying

Much better than Zayn and Niall. The electric guitar really suits Harry well. 8/10 - NiktheWiz

To be honest this is probably one of the most amazing songs I've ever heard - pjo

7 Castle on the Hill - Ed Sheeran

This is way better than Shape of You. There is an electric guitar in place of a boring tropical house beat, the lyrics about Ed's childhood beats the generic sex narrative of Shape of You, and there is actually energy and effort put into here. 9/10 - NiktheWiz

This is way better than Shape of You. Can feel that this song means more to Ed than Shape of You. Its just a pity it wasn't the number 1 hit it deserved to be because people didn't listen to both Ed Sheeran songs at the time and realize Castle on the Hill is a mile better - crowdiegal

I like this song - RoseCandyMusic

Best song ever

8 Chanel - Frank Ocean
9 Hard Times - Paramore

I am torn on this song. Not sure whether I like it or whether it could be a bit better. Hayley seems pitchy in places but I wonder if that's intended. I just don't know. - crowdiegal

This stan has been forced to wait 4 years, and you know what? It was worth every second because this is amazing. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Damn what happened? This is... so unexpectedly amazing! 5/5 - ProPanda

I LOVE THIS SONG - RoseCandyMusic

10 Pedestal - Jackie Evancho

From Jackie's new album "Two Hearts" - a song about the ups and downs of fame, written by Jackie herself. Also, see her fantastic new video of the same song. - BobG

One of Jackie's first attempt at writing. This song is so addicting as to cause me to listen to it over and over again. Great work Jackie!

Great song written by Jackie Evancho. It clearly shows her creative ability.

Very lovely

The Newcomers

? Ascension - Gorillaz

"THE SKY'S FALLING BABY, DROP THAT ASS BEFORE IT CRASH! " My friend has a huge obsession with Gorillaz. This song made me find out why. - DCfnaf


? Homemade Dynamite - Lorde

One of the best songs from Lorde's critically acclaimed second album "Melodrama" but this R 'n' B laced song is just amazing. Ella, you keep outdoing yourself here. - crowdiegal

The Contenders

11 Liability - Lorde

This beautiful ballad on the piano is not higher than Spongebob? This song actually has real instruments playing... - DCfnaf

Why is this not higher?! - Zplatter360

Eyy, this is better than Green Light. Anyone with contradicting views? - PhenomentalOne

12 Green Light - Lorde

This song is a some way to return to the charts after 4 years away. Lorde has grown up, she isn't a teenager anymore and the Pure Heroine days are over and fans need to move with her. Sure Green Light still contains traces of Pure Heroine but its dance pop at its finest. You've done well, Ella! - crowdiegal

I wasn't too convinced with this song on first listen, but after giving it a few more shots, I'm loving it. Lorde sounds great and the instrumentals are more upbeat in comparison to Royals. - NiktheWiz

Welcome back queen. 5/5 - ProPanda

So good - Tabor

13 Real Death - Mount Eerie Real Death - Mount Eerie
14 Haze of Interference - Bedwetter Haze of Interference - Bedwetter

Get this to #1 ASAP. Not one song on this list can get as emotional as this one, except for maybe Man Wearing a Helmet and Stoop Lights. - SwagFlicks

15 Inspired - Miley Cyrus

Finally, she took the country route. She should be making country music. This is like a sequel to "The Climb". Her voice is sweet here and it's about...well...being inspired to make a change. Everyone means something to the world and she wants you to know. Miley is kicking behind this year, first "Malibu" and then "Inspired". If you haven't figured it out, I really like her now. - DCfnaf

If you liked "Malibu" you will LOVE this, THIS may be her BEST song yet, it deserves number one. - DaisyandRosalina

Miley's doing well this year - Cartoonfan202

16 Hallucinating - Future
17 My Mistake - Candice Glover

I'm here on this list to talk about and defend what I believe is underrated music that deserves more attention. "My Mistake" is a great R&B song. Candice is one of the best female vocalists since Whitney Houston, along with singers such as Amy Lee, Adele, and Kelly Clarkson. She sings with beauty and power and the background effects like her lines echoing only make the song more relaxing and enjoyable. I can't wait for Candice's new album this summer because she is easily up there as one of the most underrated singers with Amy Lee. You've impressed me Candice, let's see if you can impress thetoptens. - DCfnaf

Really, this is lower than Cupcakke and Princess Vitarah? - DCfnaf

This song is ok. I like her voice, and the lyrics are alright. The beat isn't very pleasing though. 3/5. - ProPanda

18 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

I listen to this song 24/7 it makes you just want to get up and dance

Bruno just nails this song, its fantastic. One of my favourite hit songs of 2017 so far. - crowdiegal

Bruno is charming on this track with great vocals backed up by better production. Not that much else to say about it though

This is the best song 🎶

19 Believer - Imagine Dragons

I don't understand why this is so low... 54 is not justice for a song like this. But maybe that's because I'm a giant Imagine Dragons fangirl

This song is awesome, one of there best songs yet. The beat is amazing, and the 'BELIVER' part is just outstanding too. This song is in my Top 10, it's incredible! - micahisthebest

great song

I listen to this song when I'm feeling down (Of course, I do that with most imagine dragons songs)
The lyrics actually have meaning and I absolutely love it
Thunder is also a very good Imagine Dragons song - VocaloidFan1119

20 The Cure - Lady Gaga

This song describes to a T, my unconditional love for my boyfriend who struggles with depression. On the way to becoming one of my favorite Gaga songs. I can't wait to see her this September! - theOpinionatedOne

Eh. Good beat, good lyrics, good beat, but really generic. 3.5/5 - ProPanda


SHOULD BE AT NUMBER 1! - Worksponge
