Golden Oldies Top 40 #24

Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #24. :)

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 OLD55 if in doubt.

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

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

PART A: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #23 (below) you'd like to advance:

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

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #23 (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 ! :)

If anyone's having trouble thinking of NEW songs to vote for, why not browse our older Top 40s? I'm sure there's quite a few good ones that have been nominated but missed out. And if you still want ideas, try HERE. (Cash Box Charts of all eras).

Thanks for voting edna, CJ, Laurie and Phil. :)

Clever captions CeeJay, as tomorrow is the 40th Anniversary of the first man on the moon. Those of us who saw that on T.V. will always remember it I'm sure.

As long as it doesn't get voted out straight away if it makes it. :P

That's likely to happen with 'Everybody's Somebody's Fool' this week.

Poor Connie Francis and Brenda Lee. The #1 and #2 female artists of the era we're voting on, and they can't get a song in our Top 40 for more than a week each !

:o
