Aviously

Because, aviously…

Here is my list of Top Songs of 2017. And after last years terrible year of music, this year overflowed with good songs and I went with Top 20, so enjoy some good music from this year!

Thanks to all those that played our guessing game, with the winner correctly identifying all 20 songs, just not in their correct locations!!
The list is simple enough…the only restriction is that it needed to be released in 2017 and I generally won’t repeat an artist twice in the Top 10, although this year some were repeated as a featured artist.


20. Hard Times by Paramore

Hard times, gonna make you wonder why you even try
Hard times, gonna take you down and laugh when you cry
These lives, and I still don’t know how I even survive
Hard times, hard times
And I gotta get to rock bottom, oof!


19. Malibu by Miley Cyrus

We are just like the waves that flow back and forth
Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning
And you’re there to save me
And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
It’s a brand new start
A dream come true in Malibu


18. No Promises by Cheat Codes feat. Demi Lovato

Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises


17. Good Old Days by Macklemore feat. Kesha

I wish somebody would have told me, babe
That someday, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
‘Cause someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of the good old days


16. Let Me Go by Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso feat. Florida Georgia Line

I’ve been hoping somebody loves you in the ways I couldn’t
Somebody’s taking care of all of the mess I’ve made
Someone you don’t have to change
I’ve been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go


15. Talking To Myself by Linkin Park
With the loss of Chester Bennington this year it would’ve been really hard to leave them completely off this list, and this song has made it’s way up the list slowly.

The truth is, you turn into someone else
You keep running like the sky is falling
I can whisper, I can yell
But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
I’m just talking to myself


14. Don’t Blame Me by Taylor Swift

Don’t blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn’t, you ain’t doin’ it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I’ll be usin’ for the rest of my life


13. Havana by Camila Cabello
I fully expect 2018 to be a huge year for Camila.

I knew it when I met him
I loved him when I left him
Got me feelin’ like
Oooh-oooh-ooh, and then I had to tell him
I had to go


12. Issues by Julia Michaels

‘Cause I got issues, but you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me and I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory, of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve ’em
Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you


11. Legends by Kelsea Ballerini

We were crazy
Tragic and epic and so amazing
I’ll always wear the crown that you gave me
We will always stay lost in forever
And they’ll remember
We were legends


10. What About Us by Pink

What about all the times you said you had the answers?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
Oh, what about love? What about trust?
What about us?


9. The Cure by Lady Gaga

If I can’t find the cure, I’ll
I’ll fix you with my love
No matter what you know, I’ll
I’ll fix you with my love
And if you say you’re okay
I’m gonna heal you anyway
Promise I’ll always be there
Promise I’ll be the cure


8. Stay by Zedd feat. Alessia Cara

All you have to do is stay a minute
Just take your time
The clock is ticking, so stay
All you have to do is wait a second
Your hands on mine
The clock is ticking, so stay


7. Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato

Baby, fineness is the way to kill
Tell me how it feel, bet it’s such a bitter pill
And yeah I know, you thought you had bigger, better things
Bet right now this stings
‘Cause the grass is greener under me
Bright as Technicolor, I can tell that you can see
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse


6. It Ain’t Me by Kygo feat Selena Gomez

Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?
Who’s gonna rock you
When the sun won’t let you sleep?
Who’s waking up to drive you home
When you’re drunk and all alone?
Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?


5. Something Just Like This by Coldplay and The Chainsmokers

But she said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss


4. Praying by Kesha

You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is I wish you farewell


3. At My Best by Machine Gun Kelly feat. Hailee Steinfeld

I shout, I swear, I get angry, I get scared
I fall, I break, I mess up, I make mistakes
But if you can’t take me at my worst
You don’t deserve me at my best


2. Symphony by Clean Bandit feat. Zara Larsson

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So, if you want the truth…
I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?


1. Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran
This song entered the “Top Songs” list on January 6th, and almost 360 days have passed since and no one was able to knock it off of it’s castle on the hill…although some have tried!

And I’m on my way, I still remember
These old country lanes
When we did not know the answers
And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
