* 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 #28 (below) you'd like to advance:

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

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #28 (below) you don't really care for, or you think could make way for other New songs.:

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

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

Thanks Laurie, edna and bazooka. :)

How would you like to spend Winter in Brisbane, Queensland, where I am ?

We've just had our hottest August day on record today:

35.4 degrees Celsius = 95.72 degrees Fahrenheit

I've been trying to find other sites than YouTube to make the Playlists but failed so far. www.playlist.com worked fine, but yesterday all the songs were unavailable in my country! Grooveshark won't let me rearrange the songs! Anyone has a better site for me to try? :)

Thanks Lars. :)

I don't want to impose on your time too much, but maybe you could add a separate sound list of any videos you feel aren't up to par ? Such as these two originals that Pink found last week, when I said the videos were 'remakes'. Thanks Pink !

Spanish Harlem

There Goes My Baby

:headphones:

I couldn't say I was a big Marvin Gaye fan. My favorite of bazooka's nominations is 'Lonely Teardrops', but it only lasted 3 weeks when it was in before (TT 12,13,14).

Acually I wanted to nominate the B-side of this single, "Rivers Of Salt" but it didn' t chart... and "Love Letters" isn' t bad at all... ;)

...so I nominated "Rivers Of Salt" in the regular Top Ten... :grin:

Then why not put down Trashmen's Surfin' Bird as a new addition. I'm only kidding of course.

Raindrops ( I don't want to get wet when I'm surfing)

Thanks for voting Ron and CeeJay. :)

Strange, the 3 leading songs in contention to enter the Chart this week have all been in before ! None of them lasted long. La Bamba (5 weeks), Do You Love Me (2w) and The Theme From a 'Summer Place' (4w).

Real surfing weather here in Queensland at the moment: 33.4 yesterday.

I was never a surfer. My little grandchildren can swim better than me. :P
