Spring 2017 Top Ten Music Chart

From facing the music and dancing when faced by the end of the world--as in Jose Cuervo's "Last Days"--to Geoffrey Rush portraying Albert Einstein in a Super Bowl spot, playing Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" on the violin in a promo spot for NatGeo's upcoming limited series "Genius," our quarterly Top Ten Tracks Chart exhibits a wide range of music and sound.

Check out the best work that the first quarter of 2017 has to offer on the music and sound front.
