  5. The Graph: Judo used to compile this each week, giving a colorful look at the makeup of the Top Ten. My apologies for not being in a position to continue with this contribution.

  15. This top ten is gonna be a tough one. I just hope I am around before the votes close, if not Darryl could you please give my nominations the default 10 and 9 points. Thanks. I'll do my best to come back and vote.
  16. Rescue Me - Fontella Bass I Can Help - Billy Swan I hope I got the title and the artists correct. I don't have my lista at hand, but I know I can count on Farin to rescue me.
  17. Darryl, Edna and CeeCee, thank you for your kind words. Nothing major, just a visit to my ENT surgeon to investigate whether my partial hearing loss is due to upper respiratory complications or whether yours truly is really growing too old too fast I'm sure all here on songfacts would agree what good would life be without a good pair of ears.
  18. Darryl, please pardon me if I am slow on the take. I am away on short medical leave. I will look in on the threads now and then. I am working from an IT cafe where the software on the terminal PC is rather limited. The current month's graph could be late.

  21. Thank you Farin. You always come to my rescue Obviously I got the title wrong. I heard this song from a laptop burned borrowed CD that did not have a label nor track listings. Only know the artist to be Enya.
