The end of the year is coming right up, and that means it's time to reflect on your favorite music of 2017! We're taking a poll of your favorite songs -- the ones that hit you hardest, wormed into your head, and/or supported you when you needed it. At 5 p.m. CST on Dec. 31, we'll count down your favorite songs on the air in our annual Top 89 countdown.

Vote for your Top 89 of 2017!

There's a big prize for one lucky voter; when you submit your Top 89 list, you'll be entered to win a Sonos Home Theater system, featuring the Sonos PLAYBAR, SUB, and PLAY:1 speakers for totally immersive wireless 5.1 surround sound.

If you'd like some inspiration or are curious about what's on others' playlists, find out what our staff has been listening to below.
