I didn't have time to make an ordered list, so I have created a list of my favourite 50 songs of 2017 so far and put them in alphabetical order according to the lead artist. I put a limitation on myself though where a lead artist can only have one song on the list, just so that the list isn't dominated by a particular artist.
Also, I should note that I have put, in bold, my 10 favourite songs.
Anyway, here are my 50 favourite songs of 2017 so far:
Above & Beyond – Alright Now (feat. Justine Suissa) AFI – Snow Cats Algiers – The Underside Of Power Alt-J – In Cold Blood Arca – Desafio Ásgeir – Stardust Axwell^Ingrosso – More Than You Know Big Boi – Kill Jill (feat. Killer Mike & Jeezy) Big Sean – Bounce Back Calvin Harris – Slide (feat. Frank Ocean & Migos) Car Seat Headrest – Unforgiving Girl (She’s Not A Single Version) Carly Rae Jepsen – Cut To The Feeling Charli XCX – Roll With Me Danny L Harle – 1UL Father John Misty – Total Entertainment Forever Fifth Harmony – Down (feat. Gucci Mane) Flume – Depth Charge Frank Ocean – Chanel French Montana – Unforgettable (feat. Swae Lee) Future – Mask Off Future Islands – Cave Harry Styles – Sign Of The Times Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes Jeff Rosenstock – Dramamine Jungle Giants, The – Feel The Way I Do Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE. Khalid – Location Killers, The – The Man King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Open Water Kirin J Callinan – Down 2 Hang (feat. James Chance) Lil Uzi Vert – XO TOUR Llif3 Little Mix – Touch Logic – Everybody Lorde – Liability Migos – T-Shirt Milky Chance – Blossom Paramore – Hard Times Peking Duk & AlunaGeorge – Fake Magic Pink Guy – Gays 4 Donald Portugal. The Man – Feel It Still Queens Of The Stone Age – The Way You Used To Do Royal Blood – Lights Out Sam Gellaitry – Ceremony Sampha – (No One Knows Me) Like The Piano Smith Street Band, The – Birthdays Spoon – Can I Sit Next To You Temples – Mystery Of Pop Thundercat – Friend Zone Vince Staples – Big Fish Xxxtentacion – Look At Me!
In some situations, it was difficult to choose which song from a particular artist was my favourite, so by the end of the year, a couple of things may have changed around.
I also had to make some very unfortunate exclusions (particularly the new Radiohead stuff, Liam Gallagher, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya and the Higher Brothers, amongst so many more), considering there were around 70 songs I really loved this year, and wanted to limit this list to 50. Again, that could be different come year's end.
If I had to choose an absolute favourite of the year so far, it would either be Algiers or Alt-J. Last edited:

Well here goes mine, been hard to keep track as I haven't been listening to as much music so far this year as I usually do but hoping that with big albums from a few of my faves coming in the second half of the year that might change. The top 15-or-so were very clear though.
