Haha, it is almost funny that I have gotten to a point where I only do 1 post per year on this blog. I guess part of the reason is 1) I am so so much busier now than when I started doing the blog all those years ago. 2) I am super self-conscious about my writing abilities. 3) Does anyone really care what I have to say? I always say that I am going to try and do more with the blog as I do feel like I have lot's to share with people, but who knows if I will get around to it.
So one of the things I love about music is how the type of mood you are in can affect the way you feel about what you are listening to. That is what makes doing a list like this so hard. 2017 was for me an amazing year in music and made this guy a happy person. I lost many musical artists that I liked this year but I am reminded that their art will remain forever. Well until next time I will get to the poll. This year features the top 13 since 13 is my favorite number. Drum roll, please.........

12. Portugal the Man- Woodstock
11. Noel Gallagher high flying birds- Who built the Moon
10. Foo Fighters- Concrete & Gold
9. U2- Songs of Experience
8. Jason Isbell & the 400 unit- The Nashville Sound
7. Linkin Park- One more light

Not sure what to say other than to me Ryan is one of the greatest songwriters ever. He has passion and energy in his songs. I am not sure if I have ever heard a truly bad Ryan song?
