And so it comes to this, choosing 10* amazing songs from a year of amazing songs. We got something going on, thanks to Gerry for being such a congenial co-host here on Super World Indie Tunes, he’s a class act, so class. Anyhows here’s my ultra top tunes from 2017, in no particular order because every single song here is a complete gem in its own right. It’s a privilege and a pleasure to know these tunes and artists. Here’s to more great music in 2018.
*it’s 11 songs but it just goes to show…I can’t count.
