Now that 2017 is in the books, I’m sure many of you no longer care about year-in-review countdowns. But hopefully you can bear one more of them while you sit in bed and recover on National Hangover Day.

There was simply too much good music to narrow it down into 25 songs like I did for 2016, and since I listen to a lot of dance music, I thought it made sense to separate the countdowns into two rankings of of original songs (top 50) and remixes (top 25).

Hope you enjoy and discover some tunes you can catch up on in the new year! Each countdown has a corresponding Spotify playlist at the bottom so you can listen along.
