Forget the year-end lists: what was the one song that defined your 2017?
It's that time of year again when every music publication and streaming service compiles a "best of 2017" list to celebrate the year's greatest albums and songs. In some cases, they even tell you what your favourites have been. But do these top picks accurately reflect the music that defined your 2017?
Today, q This' Raina Douris and Odario Williams take a look back at the top albums and songs of the year, and break down the ease at which your year of listening can be quantified by algorithms and streaming playlists.
