Spotify's List of My Top Songs from 2017

by - February 13, 2018

If you use Spotify, you probably would have noticed a playlist of your 100 most played songs for the past year. I first got this for 2016 and now I have another one for 2017. I guess you can have an idea of what kind of person I am by listening to my playlist. Allow me to reveal a little about myself with the songs on my list!

I think what some people would be surprised to see on my list are songs like Panda (Desiigner) and White Walls (Macklemore & Ryan), which are the type of songs I used to listen to a lot when I was younger. 

Most of the songs on my list are a mix of musicals, pop and R&B, I've also been listening a lot to country this past year. Lately I've been a little more laid back with the kind of music I listen to and fell in love with country music and I think it shows on my list with songs from Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Sam Smith.Personal favorites are Luke Bryan's Play it Again (the kilig I feel when I hear it is nuts) and Sam Smith's Take Your Time.

There are also several upbeat/dance tunes because I love dancing and I work out with those kinds of songs with my Sworkit when I can. Feel good dance music (like Bang Bang from Jessie J., Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars songs Runaway Baby and Uptown Funk) always helps make workouts bearable! RuPaul's Call Me Mother is also so fun to work out to! 


Now that I'm getting older, I've also had this interest in songs from my younger years, which shows with a lot of songs in my playlist. There's some Wham from my childhood, Wilson Smith from my early teen years plus Gary V and 98 Degrees from my college years. There's actually a lot of old songs on my list than I expected, I think I've been reminiscing the good old days more than I thought! 

I've also been attempting to write things...a novel here, a novella there, there's more than one story swimming around in my head but definitely they are going to be stories about love and relationships so I've been listening to all these love songs that relate to the books I am writing. Some of the songs I've enjoyed listening to have been Jon MacLaughlin's I Want You Anyway, Gavin DeGraw's Follow Through and Perfect by One Direction. 

Another thing my list reveals about me is that I love to sing. My playlist has a lot of songs that I love to sing along to, whether I am in tune or not (hahaha)! Among my favorites are songs from musicals like Hamilton (Helpless, Schuyler Sisters) and The Unauthorized Biography of Samantha Brown (Runaway with Me). Other songs I love to sing along to are Selfish (Nsync), Not Over You (Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat live version), Coloured Kisses (Nina), Terrified (Katherine McPhee), When You're Gone (Mary J. Blige) and Ex Factor (Lauryn Hill).

I wonder what my list for 2018 will look like. I'm curious if it will be the same or will change as I get older. For sure it will still have a lot of songs I love to sing along to!
