BEST OF 2017- Final Part: Favourite EP’s, Songs and Albums of 2017

Yes, I know, I know. I’ve written all of these ‘best of’ lists before. But here me out. All of the past best of lists for 2017 (if you are to check them all here) were all done in parts (e.g.: best songs of the year were split into 4 parts, one for each quarter etc.). So this post, which will be the final ‘best of’ post relating to 2017, will compile all posts before, and will state our favourite albums, EPs and songs of 2017, this time encapsulating all the songs, EPs and albums that 2017 had to offer. There’ll be some honorable mentions that couldn’t fit into those lists,  and so without further ado, below are 365 Days of Inspiring Media’s favourite 15 EPs, 30 songs and 25 albums of 2017! What are yours? Let us know in the comments.
