Golden Oldies Top 40

Recommended Posts

I would use it as a play list any time, but I'm sure many are just as baffled by these Oldies as I am with most songs since the late 80s. That's when my kids (and I) stopped watching the Top 40 videos on a Saturday morning.

:P

Thanks Brad and Elena. :bow:

Two of my favorite people here and it just popped into my head that Brad had the first #1 ever in the Top Ten we created, with "My Sharona" and Elena had the second with "Gimme Shelter".

Now if I can just remember where I put my car keys.... :doh:

:laughing: :laughing:

Did I ever have a #1?? Really? :P

I did some weeks ago with "Suzanne" (Cohen)

Darryl, I don't think it was "Gimme Shelter", I believe it was "Tell Me"...

Thanks Mate. :)

I'm gradually listing all of my songs in ITunes. It's a great way of organising them. You can have them alphabetically, by title or artist, most played, most played recently, etc.

These are my 'most played recently' with 80s, 90s and (only one) 2000s songs deleted from the list.
