Best Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Regret in Your Tears - Nicki Minaj

What's with all the mediocre artists taking breaks and coming back with new songs, and all being polarizing in respect to each other. First Ed Sheeran, now Nicki. 5/5 - ProPanda

Surprisingly...this is GOOD. I mean Nicki Minaj is the epitome of fake and annoying, but this snatched my weave. 6/5.

While the 2014-era Nicki was kinda bad, this was a perfectly good comeback for her. I'll give a 4.9/5 - Neonco31

Wait? Nicki Minaj is starting to be good now! Yay! - lovefrombadlands

82 Feels - Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris finally making decent music instead of generic club bangers is something I haven't gotten over the shock of but I'm loving it. "Feels" is fantastic, Pharrell is impersonating Bruno Mars, Big Sean even putting in a verse with more charisma than his entire last album. Only real disappointment for me is that Katy Perry really doesn't get into the song all that much which is odd considering "Feels" has more groove and 'fun' than that "Witness" album of hers. - crowdiegal

Ah, here's a good song that charted. Sounds very Disco and funky and the tropical vibes are great. This is fresh in a year full of lazy mumble rap abominations. 5/5 - DCfnaf

This song is the best ever! It's currently my number one, before Crybaby, What About Us and Airplanes.

Don't be afraid to catch fish. - Rambo

83 Stars (The Shack Version) - Skillet
84 Hallucinating - Future

One of Future's best. - ProPanda

Bleh. Future. Get this dull crap out of here. - DCfnaf

85 Difference - Lil Trill

Greatness - DaWyteNight

86 The World is Yours - Arch Enemy

A very good death metal song - _Jack_

87 Walk On Water - Eminem

I am not a fan of either Eminem or Beyonce but this song just connected for me and I love that piano. For once a song not going on about cars, money, committing crimes or stealing girlfriends but rather focuses on Eminem's fallibility and Beyonce provides some of the best vocals of 2017 on the hook. Well done Eminem and Beyonce. - crowdiegal

In my head I would've never thought. That Eminem and Beyonce would sound good together. But hearing it out loud. I can't imagine someone ever replacing Beyonce's Verse. They Compliment each other quite nicely. - Primrose1021

One of the only rap songs of 2017 that doesn't sound like cancer. Eminem and Beyonce both are good here. - Eraser

If you're not feeling Eminem in this song. Try listening to the Solo Version with Just Beyonce. - Primrose1021

88 Learn to Let Go - Kesha

Why do I get the impression that this is going to be the best album of the year? Oh...because it IS. Literally every song on this album so far has been flawless. Kesha, what happened? You used to be an aggravating, obnoxious party girl, and now you have matured as a performer and I am literally in love with your new album. - DCfnaf

Beautiful sing about letting go of all the painful moments in life and all of the times you were wronged. - Twixx

This is definitely one of her best songs with a good message! Kesha my edges are missing! - Worksponge

I really need to try Kesha - _Jack_

89 Hard Feelings / Loveless - Lorde

Nice! - DCfnaf

90 I Built a Friend - Alec Benjamin

It's beautifull, great original story that brings the feels. Really unique and I love it. The singer deserves more attention in my opinion.

91 Coming Home - Falling in Reverse
92 How Long - Charlie Puth

Well...this is awesome.

Charlie Puth just took a major leap in quality. 4/5 - DCfnaf

93 S.A.D - Kirin J. Callinan
94 No Words - Dave
95 Symphony - Clean Bandit

This song will surely win the Grammy.

It won't even be nominated to be honest. Not done anything in the US compared to other songs likely to contend for Grammy nods. - crowdiegal

Way too underrated

The lyrics are a bit basic but damn it, it's better than a lot of current pop songs on the Hot 100. Should have made the Hot 100 if I am being honest. - crowdiegal

My new favorite song. I love listening to it because it's so me!

96 It's Everyday Bro - Jake Paul

Yes this song is bad, yes this song is cringe, but no this song isn't useless. It is responsible for creating some hilarious memes that give me laughs. So 2/5 I guess... - SelfDestruct

Honestly, it's a lot better then a lot of the songs of 2017. Not all though. It's not as bad as some make it out as.

Way better than many songs this year. Jake Paul would MURDER Drake in a rap battle!

No, Just No Again! - Primrose1021

97 Move You - Kelly Clarkson

Love So Soft is great and all, but this should've been the one that got a video first. Anyways, I am glad Kelly Clarkson has returned and is releasing new music with Atlantic Records. Here's to the beginning of the Meaning of Life era. - NiktheWiz

Get your ears checked and let me know what you think of Love So Soft afterwards. I have a feeling that this song, however, is going to be good. - allamassal

"Love So Soft" was somewhat underwhelming to me. This on the other hand... - DCfnaf

Never thought I'd like a Kelly Clarkson song, but here we are - DaWyteNight

It gets a 100/10 - Eraser

98 Idle Worship - Paramore

I absolutely love this song and Paramore is absolutely right when saying 'we all got problems don't we, we all need heroes don't we? ' We do need heroes but we shouldn't be expecting everyone to save us 24/7 whereas we can save our selves from our own problems

Oh cool, now that I know what the lyrics are about, that just makes the song a whole lot worse. 4/5 - ProPanda

Anything from Paramore in 2017 is awesome. Keep it up! - Elijah_Cook

Thank god SOMEONE made a song about how the artists that people fangirl over are not heroes that can save your life. Christ, I see tons of fans of bands such as Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park, Evanescence, and, of course, Paramore saying that "They saved my life, thank you so much, you guys are my heroes" and it’s really annoying and fake. 5/5 just for the lyrical concept alone. - DCfnaf

99 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

This is boring as hell garbage. 0/5 - DCfnaf

I love this song! It's the only rap song I like. The lyrics are good and everyone in the song sounds lovely except the annoying part when Justin Beiber sings Don't you know girl, I am the one for you cause that's annoying so 8/10 - lovefrombadlands

This is literally the best Bieber has ever sounded. 4/5 - ProPanda

Hell to the no! 0/5 - naFrovivuS

100 Disconnect - Clean Bandit & Marina and the Diamonds

Why isn't this much higher?! It's MARINA!
