TIRnRR's 83 Most-Played Tracks In 2019

Now that we've survived This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio's epic year-end countdown show, here's an extended list of TIRnRR's most-played tracks in 2019. We played our Top 48 in the show itself, and this list adds tracks 49-83. As always, we thank the mighty Fritz Van Leaven for keeping track of our stats, and making an annual countdown show possible.

It's important to note that our love of pop music makes every track we play on TIRnRR a celebration, whether it's a track we play again 'n' again or a track we play just once. On this year's countdown, our # 2 track ("Best Lover In The World" by Jim Basnight) was separated from our # 1 track (TIR'N'RR Allstars' "Waterloo Sunset") by a single spin. That's one play, over the course of a year. On a similar note, since Fritz uses an efficient system of tiebreakers to make the countdown flow like a countdown oughtta, each of the tracks shown bubbling under the Top 48 missed being included on the countdown show by a single spin. 

We play a lot of songs in a year. These are the 83 songs we played the most. The list of our 51 most-played artists will post on Thursday. Happy New Year from This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl!
