Golden Oldies Top 40 #23

Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #23. :)

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.

.................................................

Eligibility of songs:

* U.S. Charted Pop AND R&B Singles of the 1950s+ era, but not charted after 1963.

* No Album Only Tracks or Uncharted B Sides.

* U.S. Chart Links may be found for on Songfacts' Main Index page, where there are alphabetical links to many songs, either by Title or Artist. If your songs aren't there, you could use Google/Wikipedia - or PT me if in doubt.

..................................................

IT'S EASY !!! Allot your points in 3 sections:

PART A: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #22 (below) you'd like to advance:

(Plus) +5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #22 (below) you don't really care for, or you think could make way for other New songs.:

(Minus) -5, -4, -3, -2, -1.

PART C: 5 New Songs you'd like to see in the next Top 40:

(Plus) *5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

Please note that these may be duplicated on a number of Lists - you can go along with others to support songs you like. It's best to do that if you vote later.

VOTING IS NOW OPEN ! :)

Thanks Kenne and Pink. :)

You can't get New songs in except by voting down Songs near the bottom of the Chart. We might make some changes to the voting system soon, I think.

:P

Like 'Georgia On My Mind' you mean Kenne ? I'll be voting down 'You Don't Own Me' because it's had enough time at the Top. But I won't be voting down half the Top Ten ! I like to keep things as simple as possible but rule changes may be necessary.

Thanks for your suggestion, Dear Elena. Any song that doesn't get votes (for or against) is penalised two "disinterest" points. I won't care if no new ones make it this week. I'll have enough trouble just voting up only 5 songs, there's so many good ones there. But I will be supporting 'Then He Kissed Me', as I said I'd do.

God love you Elena ! You're one of a kind. :D I'm glad your ribs are on the mend.

Speaking of health, our friend Ian (CanAm) went into hospital last week for a major spinal operation. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you very much Laurie. :) I hope we get more votes soon.

I think the Top 40 is worth keeping and I hope others do too ! For those who are concerned, I won't allow consistent negative voting to continue, and spoil our Game.

Thanks for voting Phil. :)

OK Kenne. :)

Nothing as yet about Ian Elena. :P

We'll certainly let you know as soon as we hear something.

.................................................

Now, on "Negative Voting". I'm really talking about indiscriminately voting down Top Ten songs just to advance songs you like. However, I certainly don't believe there's anything wrong with voting down any songs you just don't like (your earwigs), or one that's been on Top for weeks, or any that have 'overstayed their welcome'.

We're nice people here, as a friend said to me recently.

And it's only a Game. ;)
