We briefly interrupt our annual In Memoriam theme for our second annual highlighting of the 10 most viewed posts of the previous year. This year, 9 of the 10 most viewed pieces are from two themes from last summer, "Roads/Streets" and "The Number 4."
Through our (usually) two-week long themes, our international roster of writers address many different kinds of music, and bring different perspectives to their pieces. In our top 10, there are personal memories, political and social discussions, covers, remembrances of those who have passed, both famous and personally important, and even just posts about songs, music and musicians. This list includes discussions of folk, rock, prog, power pop and other genres.
So, in case you missed them, here are the most viewed posts from the last calendar year. But they are only a small sampling of what you will find in our archives, which we invite you to explore. Also, we invite you to like us on Facebook, so that you won't miss anything.
And there is much more to come in 2017.
