What Will Be the Number One Song of 2017? WFUV Top 90 Countdown Airs 12/19
What will be the number one song of 2017? In 2016 it was Beck's "Wow," in 2015 Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats' "S.O.B.," and before that Hozier's "Take Me to Church" was the most popular song in 2014, according to the listeners of WFUV (90.7FM/wfuv.org). The results of WFUV's Year-End Listener Poll are being tabulated, and New York's Music Discovery station will be counting down the Top 90 Songs of 2017 on the air on Tuesday, December 19, between 10 a.m and 5 p.m.
Following that, starting at 6 p.m. and throughout the evening on December 19, Alisa Ali and Darren DeVivo will spotlight the Top 10 Albums as voted by WFUV's listeners with hourly sets. (A special FUV Live studio session with St. Vincent, an artist who is sure to earn some "Best of 2017" accolades for her album Masseduction, will air at 8 p.m.).
The complete results of the Listener Poll, including the Top 90 Songs, Top 50 Albums, and Top 5 Music Discoveries of the year, will be posted on December 19 at wfuv.org/bestof2017. WFUV staff picks for each DJ's favorite songs, albums and music discovery of 2017 can be found here.
"2017 was filled with a ton of great, new music from both established artists and newcomers," said WFUV Music Director Russ Borris. "When we see what stood out to our listeners, it's no surprise to see what good taste they have."
