Golden Oldies Top 40 #32

Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #32. :)

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

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

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #31 (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 ! :)

Hello everyone! I'm trying something new. I've made a blog called Golden Oldies where I have put the playlist on the sidebar. There's also another playlist called Bubbling under where I have put some of your nominations for easy listening. I intend to put more songs there in time. For the blogtext I took the liberty of pasting Ceejay countdown. (I'll remove it if you don't approve, CJ.)

lorjim58 is my YouTube ID taken from the name of my favourite literary character, Lord Jim! :)

Enjoy!
