After all of the big end-of-the year lists—Best Albums, Best Songs, Best New Artists, Best Videos—there are always a handful of songs and artists that we wish we could have highlighted. This year, we decided to try to do that with one more list. This list features some of the lesser known songs released in 2017 that we kept going back to for one reason or another. Some are potential hits from artists in their early stages, some are a little too left-field for mainstream attention, and some are random gems that we know very little about but still loved listening to in 2017. Hopefully you find something in hear that you like, and we'll see you in 2018.
