Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #30. :)

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 #29 (below) you'd like to advance:

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

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #29 (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.

Thanks for voting Don. :)

Haven't seen Phil yet. RonJon either. And we hope CanAm is OK !

Pink, Marty Robbins was very popular in Australia. We didn't even know he was a Country singer when he made #1 on our National Chart with 'A White Sport Coat..'.

He was even more popular in my home City, Brisbane. 'A White Sport Coat' was #1 for 4 weeks here, then 'The Story Of My Life' reached #3, 'Just Married' #1, and 'She Was Only Seventeen' #2. 'El Paso' got to #7 and 'Devil Woman' to #5.

You know how I'm always urging later voters to support earlier nominations..... I have all the votes totalled to date, and 4 songs look like dropping out, but it's a real dogfight to see which ones will replace them ! No clear cut favorites this week.

If I find out Bo Diddley missed out by less than 4 points, I will be sore, but I'll get over it eventually

Don't worry.

The preeminence of Bo Diddley is long-established doctrine here at Songfacts.

Elvis is King, but Diddley is Daddy.

Ellas McDaniel had a unrecognized and mostly uncredited major influence in Rock & Roll (The "Bo Diddley Beat" is the basis for hundreds of classic songs).

I'll support it next week if it misses out. :)

I just realised that I voted the current #1 down by 4 points, and #2 up by 5 points. It wasn't done to manipulate the Chart. More about that after voting finishes.

Phil, RonJon, and CanAm, if able, are still to vote.

Ian/CanAm is having a lot of trouble with his neck and can't sit at the computer for very long without severe pain. Please join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.
