OLD 55

The Original Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Lists 1 to 9

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the invite - it's good to be the chief.

A note on the Top-10 list: it's completely automated. The same songs do show up a lot, but that's because people discover the site and immediately look up "Stairway To Heaven." It's a great feature for the home page because it's hard to explain what Songfacts is about without checking out a song, and the list gets people clickin'. One thing that's kind of cool is watching a song someone sings on American Idol show up on the list the next day.

Anyway, here's my list:

1) "Fever" - Peggy Lee

2) "Hey Ya" - Outkast

3) "Rosalita" - Bruce

4) "Move On Up" - Curtis Mayfield

5) "A Little Less Conversation" - Elvis

6) "Higher Ground" - Stevie Wonder

7) "Jesus, Etc." - Wilco

8) "Safe From Harm" - Massive Attack

9) "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" - Billy Joel

10) "Tiny Dancer" - Elton John

With only just over a third of the votes in, it's too early to call. Exciting, isn't it ?

:headphones:

Thanks to the (anonymous) person who said what a good idea it was to list the songs in alphabetical order. I'm glad it makes it easier for you. Good Night !

I Can't Make You Love Me - Bonnie Raitt

Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

Levon - Elton John

Lido Shuffle - Boz Scaggs

Rebel Rebel - Bowie

Rock And Roll All Nite - Kiss

Rock The Casbah - The Clash

Tramp - Otis and Carla

Up On The Roof - The Drifters

You Don't Know Me - Ray Charles

There is my top ten list, in alphabetical order. If I may make a humble suggestion, I think that if any songs that make the final top ten don't already have Songfacts, we should submit them to the main site. The message boards here are fun and informative, but the main site is what keeps it all going. I'd be happy to put myself in charge of it if you'd like, my darling Old Fitty. You do so much for us already. :grin:

Into The Mystic - Van Morrison

Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry

Peaches, I think that is an absolutely GREAT IDEA ! :thumbsup:

I'm very happy to accept your offer to do that.

The more songs we can get on the main site the better.

Thanks Laurie. I didn't realise yours wasn't ranked. I put on an ambiguous Post when I was going to bed last night. I'm sorry to inconvience these people:

Levis (I think hers probably are "in order" though)

Jenny

Malakin

Peaches

and there's another 7 who haven't "voted" yet.

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

We're going O.K. though ! I know many people think I have a lot of music knowledge, but when I looked at that list of 46 nominations and saw how many songs I didn't know, I realised how ignorant I am of some eras. I had sick parents in the latter part of the 60s, got married in 1969, and we had 3 kids in fairly quick succession, before our other 2 "later arrivals".

I'm doing something about it though (the Music, I mean). I'm acquiring the songs I don't know and having a good listen to them. Sammy - I can't find Bodhisattva. You're not tricking OLD 55 are you ?

It's the Neil Young, solo, electric version from his album "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere"...that album starts with Cinnamon Girl and also has Down By The River...not bad huh.

The electric guitar work is such vintage Neil...I love the song.

Dang!

I just noticed Locomotive Breath on the list.

How did I miss it before. :doh:

I would have voted for it.

That song is kick @$$! :rockon:

Sorry Mate. If it misses out this time nominate it again ! Two others voted it highly (one #1 and one #5).

We're certainly going to have a new look Top Ten.

12 Voters locked in at 55 Points per time = 660 Points allocated so far. I'd better not lose the list with my calculations on it.
