Best Things About 2017 Music

2017 has had some good and bad music, but this is the best. These are the 11/10.

The Top Ten

1 Portugal. The Man released Feel It Still

One of the best songs of this year. Love a surprise indie rock hit! Really its in the same vein as Walk The Moon's Shut Up and Dance from 2015 - crowdiegal

Great song, one of the only in the mainstream worth hearing. - DCfnaf

This song is amazing! It's so good and unlike any other song I've ever heard before! - lovefrombadlands

2 Halsey released Hopeless Fountain Kingdom

I love Halsey's new album so much! It's the best thing ever! - lovefrombadlands

No its atrocious. - AlphaQ

3 Taylor Swift released Reputation

This isn't one of Taylor Swift's best albums. The fact that millions of people have brought it without questioning the quality of songs like "Look What You made Me Do" and "Gorgeous" says a lot about the sheep mentality that seems to continue to ride high this decade. - crowdiegal

It's the worst album she's ever made, with her worst songs, Taylor is now a sellout pop singer.

This is one of the worst though - DCfnaf

This has to be her worst album ever - Randomator

4 Halsey is starting to have her songs appear high on the Billboard Top 100

I'm so proud of the lovely singer Halsey getting more popular because she deserves it for actually being good, and the best singer ever! 12/10! - lovefrombadlands

5 Some of the best singers returned

Like Halsey, Imagine Dragons, and Taylor Swift! - lovefrombadlands

Lorde, SZA, Kesha, Kelly Clarkson, P! nk, and Paramore - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

6 The Chainsmokers & Coldplay released Something Just Like This

Can we get this lower please?

7 Miley Cyrus improved

True, "Malibu" is very nice. - DCfnaf

Malibu is an amazing song and she's becoming a much more relaxed and nicer singer, much better than bangerz - lovefrombadlands

Let’s be honest: Improving from Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz is not hard to do. - Zach808

8 Halsey released Not Afraid Anymore

I love this song so much! - lovefrombadlands

9 One Direction disbanded

I have no opinion about One Direction breaking up but Harry's solo music is very good - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

Harry is the only good one though. - DCfnaf

I kinda think Harry's songs are the worst songs ever, but I guess I can kinda see how people like them because they are slow but I just really don't like his voice on Sign Of The Times - lovefrombadlands

I mean, they make horrible songs on their own too (especially Harry) but at least they aren't a band anymore - lovefrombadlands

I don;t like one direction or anyone in 1D Harry made my least favorite song called sign of the times (harry styles is my least favorite singer I cover my ears to all his songs! It's true) - camisFrog

10 Katy Perry released the "Swish Swish" music video

I had forgotten "Swish Swish" existed that's how forgettable the song is. I only remember the video because it was so STUPID, it was unbelievable. - crowdiegal

This is the worst music video of all time... - DCfnaf

Oh yeah that song. This music video was stupid just like the song itself - Randomator

This is just such an amazing video, and song. 11/10! - lovefrombadlands

The Contenders

11 Kesha released Rainbow

One of the best pop albums of the year bar none. Kesha returned with a honest and in many ways inspiring album given all she has been through yet she didn't make a bitter, angry at everyone who did her wrong album, she made an album full of just great songs which a certain OTHER female pop star could learn in light of the album she released this year. - crowdiegal

No This Album Is Awesome, Reputation Sucks

Amazing album. - DCfnaf

Ew! This bad album should not be on my list - lovefrombadlands

12 The David Bowie Troll Got David Bowie to Number 1 on Many Worst Lists

Best meme of 2017, if not all time.

Oh my god, wow. - DCfnaf

13 Overkill released The Grinding Wheel
14 Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa, and SZA broke out

This is an amazing thing about 2017 music! They are all such amazing singers and it's a pleasure to heard their beautiful songs on the radio. - lovefrombadlands

15 Chris Brown's career ended

That happened? Cool! - lovefrombadlands

16 The Chainsmokers Released Memories... Do Not Open

It's an amazing album folks! - lovefrombadlands

17 King Diamond became a father and named his son Byron, after Uriah Heep's singer David Byron
18 Calvin Harris released quality songs

I am not massive fan of Calvin Harris, his generic and to be quite honest, awful brand of EDM was terrible until 2017 where he dropped an 80s funk inspired album called Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1 and man, I was impressed. "Slide" and "Feels" will probably make the Billboard Year End Hot 100 and deservedly so because they are both fantastic songs - crowdiegal

19 Camila Cabello released Havana

This is an amazing song! It has a good beat and an amazing voice! 11/10! - lovefrombadlands

20 Kelly Clarkson flopped

We hardly hear her new music on the radio here in Malaysia. I consider that a good thing.

@lovefrombadlands, I'm sorry, I really am, When I added items like, ''Halsey sucked this year'', ''AJR realesed The Click'', And ''The Chainsmokers - Bloodstream'',And made that dumb cooment in the, Top Ten Most Disappointing Things in 2017's Music list, It was out of pure anger and I didn't look if it was wrong or not (Though I should know better) If you don't want to forgive me, Then that's fine (Because like I said, I should know better) Just know I'm sorry and I won't do this again.
