All members of Songfacts are most welcome to vote and help create next week's Top 40. Don't be shy. It may look a little complicated, but it's not really. You don't have to be an 'oldie' - just someone who appreciates this kind of music.

PART A: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #13 (below) you'd like to advance:

Thanks Lea and Phil. :)

I've just added the votes to date. Now I'm not trying to sway anyone's voting, but there's 3 New songs with a realistic chance of making it at this stage....

Rhythm Of The Rain - Cascades, 14 points (could be our first re-entry)

Dream Lover - Bobby Darin, 10 points

Tom Dooley - Kingston Trio, 8 points

I'm Ready - Fats Domino, 6 points

7 others with 5 points each, and 13 others each on 4 points or less.

Hi, ODN.

I'm on the back-burner but that doesn't mean I'm not paying attention.

Hopefully, you'll allow me to say that you've made a perfect thread and, coincidentally, it's my favourite, too!

Be well,

~Marcus~
