WOW HITS 2018: WHAT’S YOUR PREDICTION (PART 3)?

So…it’s been about a couple of months since the last WOW Hits 2018 prediction. Gee, doesn’t time fly, right? Anyway, during that time, there have been many radio singles that have come and gone, and some that have been on the airwaves for the longest time ever (in a good way!)

Even though we already made a predicted list a while ago (you can view them both here and here!), there’s plenty of new songs and soon-to-be released songs that have been revealed over the past while, so without further ado, here’s my next stab at WOW Hits 2018, and stay tuned to more predictions later this year! Happy predicting!

Sound off in the comments whether you agree with our selections. We will be reviewing WOW Hits 2018 in early August 2017, when the track listing releases.

  6. Well… one thing we all know for sure- WOW Hits 2018 is certainly going to be a good one, no matter what the track listing is.

    But then again, when have we all ever gotten a list correct (or close enough)? We all know WOW and the brand- there’ll be some songs on WOW Hits 2018 that’ll be very old, and at least one or two that I’m sure we have never really heard before.

    Still, moving forward, I reckon WOW needs a brand change- maybe 3 discs instead of 2 in the future?

    Nevertheless, here’s my list of what I reckon is a decent WOW Hits 2018 if it were to be made now. I’ve included the usual 39, plus 15 songs that I tried to fit on my ‘version’ but couldn’t-

    WOW Hits 2018 (Predictions)

    1. More Than Conquerors (Steven Curtis Chapman)
    2. Home (Chris Tomlin)

  7. Hey, Jonathan.
    Your list is OK.

    I would prefer
    “Lifer” instead of “Even If”
    “One Step Away” instead of “Oh My Soul”

  8. Hey Michael!
    Thanks for agreeing about “Feel Invincible”(which no one realized has a higher chart peak than “Stars”), “Real” (which is just a flat-out good song!), and “Maker” (one of the best songs ever written)

    Hey Jonathan!
    You need to get a better variety
