CKOI Year-End Top 50 of 2017

lettrage-camion-ckoiC’est quoi? Well, Montreal radio station CKOI has published a year-end Top 50 chart annually since 1976. It includes both international and Canadian and both Anglo and Franco songs. While the latter have a tough time making it onto the national charts, the CKOI chart gives us a good idea of the more popular Franco songs by year. Of all the year-end charts, this one is the most inclusive offering a very balanced presentation. There is greater variety of genres with pop, rock, dance, R&B, folk, soul, and even country. Because of this and other factors, you may find on the chart international Anglo songs that are absent from English language radio playlists. The top Canadian Franco song of 2017 on the chart is (surprise!) “Une p’tite bière” by Anthony Gaudet at #21. Canadian artists are in red. Franco songs are in blue. Of the 50, 13 involve Canadian artists, down from 18 last year.
