My Top 5 Songs of 2017:

This is becoming a bit of a tradition for me, having started this as part of an activity for the MOOC we wrote. I have done this in 2014, 2015, 2016, and now 2017.

I love getting to the end of the year and giving myself an excuse to dig back through all the music that was released and pick some favourites to share. There were some incredible records released this year, but here are some highlights for me.

Please do feel free to join in by posting yours in the comments section below!
