Golden Oldies Top 40 #41

Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #41. :)

PLEASE NOTE:

A NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE SAID THEY HAVE DIFFICULTY THINKING OF NEW SONGS. THIS CHARTS SITE SHOULD HELP YOU OUT WITH SELECTING SOME SONGS OF THE ERA. JUST GO TO "SELECT A DECADE" & CLICK ON 50s OR 60s.

ALSO, SOME HAVE SAID THEY HAVE TROUBLE VOTING DOWN SONGS. THE THING IS, TO GET NEW SONGS INTO THE CHART, SOME OTHERS HAVE TO DROP OUT !

I'VE SEARCHED 'OLDIES' SITES, BUT I CAN'T FIND ANY WITH AN INTERACTIVE CHART LIKE THIS. WE ARE UNIQUE! PLEASE SUPPORT THE TOP 40 THIS WEEK.

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 Cyberjudge if in doubt.

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

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

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

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

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

Just to help remind everyone of potential new songs...I Google "Top songs of 1960" or Hit songs of 1960 (or whatever year I want). that usually gives me a list of at least 100 songs. I used 1960 this week for no particular reason.

Thanks for your support Elena and Ron. And a very good year was 1960. Although there were people choosing it as the year the world would end (like 1980, 2000 and now 2012) for some reason I don't recall now. What else ?

* Trampolines were the big leisure craze in the U.S.

* Culottes were 'in' for women (something we men never understood)

* Psycho was the Hit Movie of the year, although ignored at the Oscars

* Westerns ruled TV - Gunsmoke, Wagon Train, Have Gun Will Travel

* Bye Bye Birdie was the big new Broadway Musical

Thanks so much to the Ten people who voted. I hope you'll continue to do so and keep the Top 40 going. But you're going to need a Moderator to open the new and close the old each week. See if you guys can recruit one to do that.

I've enjoyed my stay here but I'm going to stick with my decision and leave now. I thank God for all the wonderful friends I've made and wish you all every happiness. I do correspond by Email with a few friends here, and invite anyone else to drop me the occasional Email at dazstamps@netspace.net.au

Bye All.
