2017 was a fantastic year for singles. For every surprise #1 hit there were countless underrated songs that pushed an artist to the limit. I pick my favourites from familiar faces like Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar and Lorde, while newer acts like Dua Lipa and Stormzy make a huge impact.
Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga make up just some of the previous nominees who could be in for another Song of the Year nomination in 2018. There are a lot of potential tracks here, but I attempt to break down the chances of each, while throwing in a few curve-balls who could sneak in when nominations are announced in November.
