    Hello Jai. Nice to see someone trying to get something moving ! I only knew 'I'm Still waiting' so I had a listen your other songs. Liked them all. Let's share them.

I don't know my way around here anymore, so I'll post HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURIE in this thread and hope she sees it !
  4. I know House Of Pain and maybe the L.A. Guns and Fastway songs. I'll try to have a listen tomorrow and vote for my 'old' Mate Brad. Cheers to all my friends I'm still alive and staving off dementia so far.
  5. Looks like you confused Lars, Kenne. He was on here yesterday, presumably to vote ? He would have certainly got his Beach Boys' nomination in the Ten if he'd voted, possibly as high as #5.
  6. Rate the Last Movie You've Seen

    Guys, if you like sports movies, you'll like 'Draft Day' even though it is a bit short on action. I enjoyed it. 7.5 Has "The Water Diviner" with Russell Crowe been released in the U.S. ? I was a bit reluctant to see it after the disastrous "Noah", but it was great ! Also, war movies are usually depressing to me. It took me years to get around to watching "Schindler's List", an amazing Movie. This is about a Father (RC) whose 3 sons all join the Army "for King and Country" in WW1, and are presumed killed in action on the Gallipoli Peninsula. RC journeys to Turkey not long after the end of the War to try to find out what happened to them. Sounds impossible ! Excellent Movie. 9.

  8. You're very welcome my friend ! At the moment I'll have to find more to make 10. Some listening to do again, but that's OK.
  9. Done, Ray You'll get a high vote from me for Marty. Not much comment on last week's Top Ten. Was everyone watching the Super Bowl ? Very novel noms Laurie. Here's the fourth Beatle to complete the set. Power To The People - John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (1971) Nobody Loves You When You're Down And Out - Derek & The Dominos (1970) Who Can It Be Now ? - Men At Work (1981)
  10. Onya Ian Nice to see you get a #1, even though I'm not really a fan of the bearded ones.
  11. We're 2 of a kind ! I love Pop Trivia and used to run a Quiz here some years ago, but I was so computer naive I didn't realise that my friends could look some answers up on Google. And thank you for these 2 songs which didn't chart in the UK but went Top Ten in the US..... You Turn Me On (Turn On Song) - Ian Whitcomb And Bluesville US #8, 1965 Wild, Wild West - The Escape Club US #1, 1988 .....................................................

  12. Thanks Phil. They certainly were very popular in America.
  13. Certainly not, my friend ! I have Graham Betts' UK Hit Singles Book, but of course that doesn't show all UK releases. I looked up Discographies on different sites on the Net, but I'd rather trust a reliable book anytime. I have about a dozen of Joel Whitburn's US Chart Books which I read voraciously. My Wife says "how can you read them over and over ?" + Australian and Queensland (my State) Books. AUS Charts were irregular, with various ones accepted as 'official' at different times. I didn't realise you were such a prolific collector. Anytime I have trouble with UK releases please step in and help me out. I'll add 'You Turn Me On' and ' Wild, Wild West' (both US Top Tens) to the list. Thank you.
  14. Here's 2 songs from Buck Owens & His Buckaroos that were US #1 and #6 Country Hits respectively, but failed to make the US Pop Charts. We really liked them in Australia where they were both Top 10 Pop Hits. Made In Japan (AUS #7, 1972) (It's A) Monster's Holiday (AUS #4, 1974) ARTISTS/GROUPS FEATURED SO FAR....
