Ray Ray’s Top Songs of 2017
We’re now only a few short weeks away from the end of another amazing year in the music industry. We ATH kids went all list, all the time this year with a whole bunch of opinions about top albums, top Oceanic albums, top Austin albums and even one about albums you’ve probably never heard of. We like music, we like lists, and we like debating about both lists and music, so deal with it. I’m continuing our insane foray into lists this year end season with my personal Top 25 songs of 2017.
A quick blurb and full list after the jump.
A quick disclaimer: This is my list. No one else on the ATH staff played a role in making these selections, so if you have beef, you’re looking at the guy to argue with. Also, this list was made almost entirely out of top plays on my iTunes which keeps track of things on my phone, at home, and even in the car. The iCloud is pretty sweet. Maybe you’ve heard of it?
I also mad a handy dandy Spotify playlist you can find at the bottom of the post. Be excellent to each other.
