ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2017: Part Two, 60-31

As 2017 draws to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. 2017 was certainly a year of considerable change in many different industries: media, politics, etc., and that change was reflected in much of the music that was released this year. In fact, “Never Change” gives a new Irish duo, Picture This, their first song to reach my year-end survey. Luckily, “Love” was still felt throughout the year, featured in the titles of songs from Andy Grammer, John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson and more. “Money” was on the mind of Jack Antonoff from Bleachers, as well as the four guys from Foster The People. You already know that I played songs from Harry Styles and Paramore about a million “Times”, while Lorde and MUNA found “Places” to rest on the survey earlier this year, but where will they “Place” here?

Well, grab your headphones and let’s get back to the countdown. Check out the next 30 songs on my Top 100 of 2017…

The 2017 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 4, 2016 to the chart dated November 26, 2017. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with a higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks charted in the top 40 and top ten. 176 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, an increase from the 168 that did so in 2016.
