Jet Fuel Jukebox’s Top 50 Songs of 2017!

Here on the Jet Fuel Jukebox, we’re ringing in the New Year with lists! Below you can explore an expansive record of our favorite songs of the year, before coming back tomorrow to read all about our respective Top 10 Albums of 2017, which Jake and I have absolutely pored over.

And while the albums list will be exactly what you expect if you’ve read our previous entries, we’ve actually done things a bit differently for the songs list this year. In year’s past, Jake and I would simply choose our own 25 favorite songs and slap them together into one fine playlist with no rhyme or reason as to where the tracks landed. It worked, but missing from it was a cohesion of both our musical tastes.

Here, we decided to each pick 25 songs like usual, but this time, we’ve each listened through all of our picks and separately ranked them. Once we both ordered them, I assigned a point value to our rankings — with the #1 spot receiving 50 points, #2 receiving 49, and so on and so forth. Finally, I added the points together from our respective lists correlating to each song, and made a final ranking of the 50 tracks. (This is also the most math I’ve done in a while.)

So, below you will find our definitive Top 50 Songs of 2017 list, which you can easily listen to through Spotify. But also, do scroll past the Spotify link, because I’ve included the exact rankings that both Jake and I assigned to each song, and you can also find out who added which track in the first place. This helps put the list into perspective in a very interesting way, and some decisions may actually surprise you.
