Golden Oldies Top 40 #38

Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #38. :)

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

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

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #37 (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 for voting Pink, Lars, Elena and Nicole. :)

Thank you for your offer of help Lars. :thumbsup: We'll get together with Laurie and CeeJay and see if we can work out a 'program'.

TIP: Don't bother giving any more minus votes on 16 Candles.

It's gone, unless a few people suddenly give it +5 each.

Thanks for voting Lucky. :)

I'd like to close this week's Top 40 soon.

It's Friday 3.15 PM here, and I'd like my Saturday morning free.

So if you intend to vote could you please do so soon ? Thanks.
