Friday Night Five – December 30, 2016

Tonight’s playlist will be a long and winding road. I will be featuring one track from each of the artists that I showcased on the website in 2016. Since we highlight both modern and classic artists, a true “best of 2016 list” is a bit of a misnomer. There may be older tracks on the playlist – however they were featured this year. So, this evening, each track is a favorite on Strawberry Tongue. There’s about 175 in total, however, the list below is a non-ordered Top 100 songs for the year. Highly scientific, this list is based on listening times, fan favorites, and unabashedly, the always wild card of Dawn Marie’s personal pets. I have to thank all the bands, fans, and freaks that reached out to me this year and their unwavering support of this crazy little thing called love. Each of them truly brought light for what turned out to be the ultimate dumpster-fire of a year.

Breaking from our usual format, tonight’s playlist begins at 7:00pm EST / 1:00am CET and runs for a whopping 12 hours! It will repeat again both Saturday and Sunday at the same time. Put on your party pants people, it’s gonna be a long night, but worth every bit of your time. So sit back and enjoy the ride. Happy New Year!
