WTTS A To Z: 2,017 For 2017

WTTS A To Z: 2,017 For 2017

15 Comments 02 January 2017

WTTS is ringing in 2017 by playing exactly 2,017 songs… in alphabetical order! WTTS A To Z is back. Our annual musical tradition starts on Monday, January 9th. The very first song will play at 7am. Hear 2,017 songs hand-picked by the WTTS staff, all in alphabetical order! WTTS A To Z is presented by Dreyer & Reinbold.

The “Official” WTTS Rules of the Alphabet:

-The articles “A” and “The” will be recognized this year. So songs that start with “A” will fall in the first letter, while all “The” songs will play during the letter “T.”

-Parenthesis are ignored, eg. “(Sittin’ On The) Dock Of The Bay” will play during “S.”

-All numbers and years are spelled out, eg. “1979” will be recognized as “Nineteen Seventy Nine.”

-Abbreviations go first in the letter, eg. “Mr.” and “Mrs.” songs

-Same song, different artist? We’ll break the alphabet and play the original song first.

-Same title, different song? We’ll defer to alphabetical order based on the artist’s name.

Nothing evokes passion and emotion like music, especially music that has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives. These songs that we love from our favorite artists are like snapshots in our family photo album. Each one provides clues to our history, our tragedies, our triumphs and our loves. Music bonds us as a community. And when one of the contributors to our life’s soundtrack dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, a friend who has been “through it all” with us. The heartbreak is shared and the feeling of our own mortality is real. This past year as we have experienced the loss of many in our musical family, I feel strengthened by our shared grief and expression of gratitude. I ask to find comfort together in the music they created for us and remember those times in our lives punctuated in song.

Here’s to a brand new year, brand new music and brand new memories.
