Our Top 25 Songs of 2017

These are the top 25 songs of 2017, as determined by me (Erick) and Jennifer! How we compiled it was coming up with our own lists of favorite 25 songs from 2017. It was a ranked vote, with the first choice getting awarded 25 points and the second vote getting 24 and so on. After we came up with our list of top 25 songs, we went into a second round of voting with all of the songs, including those tied, being the pool of songs to select from. Since the ties weren’t going to eventually get settled, we settled on only two rounds of voting, with the tiebreaker being the highest vote received. There were a couple of songs that received the same highest vote, and therefore, with no further tiebreaker method being decided upon, we decided to just leave them at a tie.

So without further ado, here’s our favorite 25 songs of 2017:
