One Ticket Please Playlist: Best of the Worst (Year) 2017

Picking up where 2016 left off, 2017 left much to be desired. America’s political climate is a joke, Hollywood turned out to be run by perverts (and thankfully purged a large number of them), and for some reason everything has to be discussed in context of Star Wars. However, the music scene never gave up and delivered us some amazing albums and new artists that we will likely be digging for years to come. So, I took some time and collected the stand out tracks that came out of this sarlacc pit of a year.

Instead of just arbitrarily assigning numbers to each of the songs on here, I thought it would be more helpful to sort songs into groups of similar songs. It’s like little playlists within a playlist! So, go ahead, relax, click play, and enjoy some of the finest songs of 2017!

And from everyone here at One Ticket Please, have a wonderful 2018!
