10 Best Songs of 2017 x Chris Cantore

Needless to say, 2017 was a flipping roller coaster of a year (akin to 2016.)  Thankfully, amid the chaos, beautiful art was born — even rock nostalgia felt more relevant than it has in decades.  While the album format will always hold a special place in my heart, the dominance of streaming services puts way more focus on singles, or songs.  After reviewing end-of-the-year Spotify analytics (how technical,) these are the 10 songs that got the most love of out of my personal account, but, there are truly too many awesome genre-expanding songs from 2017 to mention.

10. LCD SOUNDSYSTEM – “OH BABY”

9. Hundred Waters – “Blanket Me”

8.  Girlpool – “It Gets More Blue”

7. PHOENIX – “J-BOY”

6. THE WAR ON DRUGS – “STRANGEST THING”

5. PERFUME GENIUS – “SLIP AWAY”
