#1 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#1 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Electric Nights" by Parralox. Click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions wrote about the single last month. However, we first brought the song to your attention back in February when we reviewed Parralox's album Subculture.




For most of the year, we were listening to the album version of "Electric Nights" as we knew it would be the first single. However, we waited and waited and at one point, we thought maybe the single wasn't going to happen. Then in October, we heard there was an official release date in November. The single was released with lots of mixes, b-sides, and a brand-new single version! Woo! 



We were over the moon with the new single mix and that is when we knew that "Electric Nights" would surpass Steps's "Scared Of The Dark" for the #1 position. Also, "Electric Nights" also won our reader's poll as the best song of the year, too. Now check out the Trontastic video ...




So electric, indeed. Parralox have been very supportive of Poptastic Confessions ever since "Crying On The Dancefloor" landed at #2 in our 2014 countdown. John even did an interview for us in 2015. We appreciate the support, and we are so happy to honor them with the #1 position this year!




"Electric Nights" and Subculture are available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. You can also hear the new single version on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!~


Just as we posted this, John just sent us an exclusive acoustic version of the song! How fantastic is that? Here it is ...





If that wasn't enough, John has just sent us a link for you to download a mashup with "The Rhythm Of The Night" by Corona. The mashup was done by Vinny Vero and Steve Migliore. The download is free for two weeks. AMAZING!




Cheers then,
—The Poptastic Confessions Collective

#2 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#2 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Scared Of The Dark" by Steps. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions first wrote about it.



"Scared Of The Dark" was Steps big return as it was the first single from their comeback album Tears On The Dancefloor. It is so dramatic and epic (hello, stunning key change) that it almost sounds like a futuristic ABBA song. Steps really hit it out of the park with this song and it should have been a huge hit everywhere (it was in our world). Check out the fantastic video ...



Amazing, right? It was almost our #1, too. So close. "Scared Of The Dark" is available on digital outlets everywhere. If you made it this far in 2017 without downloading it, go do it now — as well as the whole album. You won't be sorry. You can also hear the song on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. You will also hear quite a few Steps tracks there as well.




Cheers then,

#3 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#3 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Wearing Nothing" by Dagny. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions wrote about it earlier this year.




"Wearing Nothing" was instantly a favourite of ours from the moment we saw the super-cute music video. The song is so damn catchy! This is the first time Dagny has been on our charts, and she really hit a home run with this amazing track. We never tire of watching the video either. It definitely is one of the best videos of the year. Simple and sweet. The choreography is awesome, too. Have a look ...



Admit it. You want to watch it again. Go ahead. Don't forget to buy the download as it is available on digital outlets everywhere. You can also hear the song on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. You'll also hear her songs "More, More, More" (which came in at #57) and "I Love You Like That" (which came in at #69)



Cheers then,

—The Poptastic Confessions Collective

#4 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#4 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Hair Down" by Mollie King. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it earlier this year.



"Hair Down" is an instantly catchy relentless bop. It is unapologetic in the "Na na na" bits. Before you know it, you are singing it everywhere you go and trying to flip your hair around in slow motion! Oh those horny horns! Overall, it is a very fun song and that is what we like most about it. Mollie definitely brought the fun to 2017, and we thank her (and her sequin outfits in the video) for it. 



Fun, fun, fun! "Hair Down" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. It even comes with remixes and an acoustic version. You can hear the song on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify.



Cheers then,
—The Poptastic Confessions Collective

#5 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#5 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Dancing With A Broken Heart" by Steps. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it earlier this year.




"Dancing With A Broken Heart" was the surprise 4th single from Steps this fall. It was a a surprise because it wasn't on the original album Tears On The Dancefloor album that was released in the spring. They added it and 3 other songs to a new version called Crying At The Disco Deluxe Edition, which came out in the fall. The song has a fantastic chorus with a glorious key change at the end. The video is a little strange. Have a look ...





Love the song so much more than the video. "Dancing With A Broken Heart" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. You can also hear the track on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify.

#6 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#6 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Weightless" by Infernal. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions has to say about it earlier this year.



"Weightless" is one of those songs that the more you hear it, the more you like it. When we put it on our 2017 playlist, it slowly became a favourite of our and landing in in the Top 10 almost by surprise to us. It is a great song and we are pleased it did so well on our countdown. Sadly, there wasn't an official video. However, they performed the song on a morning TV show in Denmark. Have a look ...



Wasn't that catchy? Yes, it was. "Weightless" is not available on digital outlets everywhere for download. Boo! However, you can hear the studio version on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify.

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#7 in our favorite songs of 2017 is "Lucy (Sun Goes Up)" by Chris Tall featuring Maydar. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions wrote about it earlier this year.




This charming feel-good song is about the joys of driving a convertible named Lucy. It is so infectious that it just makes you want to get up and get your groove on. It was a fabulous summer song that has extended its reach throughout the year. We had never heard of Chris Tall or Maydar until this song. But what they did here is magic. Sadly, there is no music video. So you'll just have to listen here ...



Wasn't that awesome? Yes, it was! "Lucy (Sun Goes Up)" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. You can also hear the song on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify.

#8 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#8 in our favorite songs of 2017 is "Do You Think About Me" by Benjamin Ingrosso. Click on the name of the song to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it earlier this year.



"Do You Think About Me" is one of those songs with mixed emotions. The lyrics are a bit sad, yet combined with the feel-good music, you don't know how to feel. One thing is for certain, we know that we love the song! And it ended up being the perfect summer jam. The video is quite nicely done, too. Ah ... young love! Have a look ...



Wasn't that nice? Yes, it was! "Do You Think About Me" is available on digital outlets everywhere. Buy your copy today. You can hear the song, as well as Benjamin's other songs "One More Time" (which came in at #40) and "Good Lovin'" (which came in at #84), on our 2017 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify.
