    Shame they're not doing a 2017 wrapped like Spotify with Apple Music.

    Yes, I'm also astonished Apple is mostly relying on ads and commercials. Media currently is flooded with Spotify 2017 reviews, even though content is not providing a lot of surprising value (Ed Sheeran....).

    known but velocity indeterminate
    are these all by popularity rather than curated?

    They have to be. There are few, if any, songs that came out in 2017 that are more poignant than Willie Nelson's, "Old Timer":

    One by one, your friends have crossed over
    You pray for mercy and a few more days
    Still got dreams inside your head
    Some days it's a struggle just to get out of bed​

    Were that not enough, "He Won't Ever Be Gone," in tribute to his friend Merle Haggard:

    Got the news this morning
    Knew it'd be a tough day
    Some are so much larger than life
    Hard to believe they could pass away​

    The whole album (God's Problem Child) is spectacular, Willie's sixteenth #1 country album, and his FIFTIETH top ten album.

    Yeah, I'm a fanboy. I admit it. I even wore Willie braids (with my own hair) to the Fourth of July picnic concert this year.
