The One-Hit Wonders Of The 2010s

This post was originally published on this site

One-Hit WondersWhat constitutes a one-hit wonder? It seems like it should be cut and dry, but the designation can be pretty arbitrary, with gut feelings often trumping objective data. The “one-hit wonder” label can sometimes befall an artist with a robust catalog, whose fans will inevitably insist their fave does not deserve to be categorized as … More »

Top 100 Songs of 2017

This post was originally published on this site

2017 was quite the year, and we couldn’t have gotten through it without these songs.

Songs are like friends for us. When we hear a song that we love at The Wild Honey Pie, it becomes an integral part of our lives. I remember having contests in the office to see who could transcribe the lyrics to “Mary” by Big Thief first, or who could belt out “Don’t Kill My Vibe” by Sigrid the hardest. These songs have been the soundtrack of so many changes in our lives, and have given us those truly special moments of realizing that we are not alone.

Though it is pretty much impossible to fully dive into every song that came out this year and hold them up against one another, these are, quite simply, the ones that have found their way into our lives and have not left. These are our favorites of 2017 – the ones that have gotten us through the hardest times, and gave us a little bit of hope through it all.

Please let us know if we missed any of your favorites, and click here for our Top 30 Albums of 2017!
