2017 End of Year Draft

Alright, let's try this. 

Here is what I'm thinking. This will be a song draft of any song that was released or peaked in popularity in 2017. I'm not going to be picky about release dates. Anything that was released on a 2017 album is eligible, including live albums. Any single or song released digitally in 2017 is eligible. Anything that charted in 2017 is eligible. Anything that can be reasonably considered a 2017 song is eligible. All genres and styles of music - newcomers to song drafts encouraged. 

The main objectives for this draft are highlighting 2017's best songs, generating a collaborative FBG 2017 Spotify playlist (which I will take care of), doing a refresh before our annual album poll and continuing the music discussion from the recently ended Genrepalooza draft.

This in mind, I want to make it easy for people to participate and I want to move through it quickly, so there will be no draft order - schedule for draft picks will be as follows (you can drop out at any time as well if 15 rounds is too many, just post in here that you are doing so):

Sign Up/Discussion - Today (Mon Dec 4)

Round 1 - Anytime Tuesday December 5 - this will establish who is in and let people get their bearings.

Round 2 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Wednesday December 6

Round 3 - Anytime after 3 PM EST Wednesday December 6

Round 4 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Thursday December 7

Round 5 - Anytime after 3 PM EST Thursday December 7

Round 6 - Anytime Friday December 8

Round 7 - Anytime Saturday December 9

Round 8 - Anytime Sunday December 10

Round 9 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Monday December 11

Round 10 - Anytime after 3 PM EST Monday December 11

Round 11 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Tuesday December 12

Round 12 - Anytime after 3 PM EST Tuesday December 12

Round 13 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Wednesday December 13

Round 14 - Anytime after 3 PM EST Wednesday December 13

Round 15 - Anytime before 3 PM EST Thursday December 14

Idea with this schedule is to move through it quickly. Friday afternoon and weekends can be dead times when people don't want to check in - so only one pick per day there. Two picks per day the rest of the time with one morning/one evening - lately a lot of the best discussion happens in the evening but I'm saying after 3 PM so people who want to just do it all during the day at work have that option as well.

I would love a new draft, but I am not in for 2017. I support you guys and NV's attempt to do so; I just don't think I know enough songs to do it.  Peace, fellas.

I saw you in the draft and knew that of the two bands I liked from this year, one would be taken.

Yes, just post them 1 or 2 per day according to the schedule above ;) . There is no draft order to this draft.

I’d be in for this, as long as the old guys don’t mind some well-curated rap selections.

I’m excited to check out the final FBG playlist.

I'm interested in seeing the results because this was the year I ditched my classic rock radio station in favor of the Alternative Rock channel. I've heard more new (to me) music this year than I have since I was in high school. I'm interested to know what new music the FBG's come up with and see how it compares with what I've been exposed to. 

However, I'm not nearly the music expert that so many of you are (seriously, not snark) so I'll just watch from the sidelines.

Round 1 can be picked any time today, which will give us a better idea on numbers.

Any guys on the fence feel free to jump in, judgment free draft and some more mainstream stuff would make the playlist a better representation of 2017 than just the music :nerd: stuff.

I think I put this three separate times in my 2017 playlist

I'm way more of an album guy so I'm mostly going to take tracks from my favorite albums but this song had no proper album--was on the T2 soundtrack and was one of my favorites this year:

Round 1 - Young Fathers - Only God Knows

I don't know enough about new music, but if you want me to do a sheet, let me know.

If so, give me a list of folks that are in, and I'll get it set up. Should be easy with no categories/genres.

I mentioned these guys a few times in the 2017 albums thread.  Don't know where I stumbled across it for a recommendation, but it quickly became my most listened album this year.  I guess they are from Greece and this was their debut.  IMO they made a better QotSA album than QotSA did this year, and this album scratched the itch I was hoping that QotSA was going to.  

Round 1

Deaf Radio - Backseats

good stuff so far. i got excited to hear the selections, then i checked out The Ringer's 2017 Top 10, which gave me a giantitious uh-oh (i find ISIS recruitment videos less objectionable than #1 - and i knew who she was already - and the best of the rest from St Vincent only boring) but you guys have kinda bailed the year out a lilbit. plz continue -
