Forum - General - Best of 2017

Here are the Top 100 singles of 2017, so far, based on points. This chart is dated 26 June, 2017 and consists of the first six months only. There were 138 songs in the Top 40 during those six months, 29 more than last year. Also, kiwi tracks were also well down. This year there were only 6 local songs in the chart compared to 2 last year. It may appear to be up but if you take the 5 songs from Lorde out of the equation, that leaves only one.
Anyway, here is the Top 100. If you would like to see the next 38, please let me know.

There is wide agreement that it was a dull year for Australian music getting out there to be heard, but it looks like NZ had it worse!!!
Yeah for some reason kiwi music doesn't chart well these days. 2017 was a better year for kiwis though, largely due to Lorde and Six60 who took 6 each of the 14 kiwi songs to chart in 2017.
Watch this space, more to come for my 2017 review.
Here are the Longevity charts. This is based on most weeks in the chart from May 1975 to the end of 2017:
