The Day Thread Brings Back Songs By The Letter

Remember Songs By The Letter? It was a weekly series of posts from November 2017 to April 2018 where you would list your favorite 25 songs that start with a particular letter. I really enjoyed it. There was an unofficial house rule (not that any rules were ever really enforced) of one song per artist, and to this day I agonize over my decision to go with Dear Prudence over A Day In The Life. Also, there were slim pickings for some letters of the alphabet like Q and X. Still, I found it to be a good way to find and fix gaps in my music collection.

Anyway, it’s been well over a year, tastes change, Avacados come and go (the user who originally started Songs By The Letter was banned shortly after posting C), artists get caught up in #MeToo and have their songs deleted from libraries *cough*Ryan Adams*cough*, so I figured it was time to bring it back.

I’m calling it “Songs By The Letter: Side 2.” I’ll post them Mondays at 2 PM ET, starting with A on August 12. And after Z, I’ll do one last post for songs that begin with numbers or other non-letters. I’m looking forward to it.

And don’t forget that the Weekly Shuffle Thread goes up at noon eastern today. (I’ll be posting my shuffle there.)

Happy Friday, and be excellent to each other.
