This was definitely the most difficult selection for me. It would have been easier had it been a Top 15 instead. Oh well, here goes:

1.Green River - C.C.R.

2. Have You Ever Seen The Rain? - C.C.R.

3. Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting - Elton John

4. The Chain - Fleetwood Mac

5. Sloop John B - The Beach Boys

6. Heatwave - Linda Rondstadt

7. I'd Love You To Want Me - Lobo

8. If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

9. Dance With Me - Orleans

10. Summer In The City - The Lovin' Spoonful

I chose C.C.R. songs as my number 1 and 2 selections, but then they are 2 of my 3 favourite songs by the band. I'm pleased to see that a Linda Rondstadt song was nominated this time. I believe she is a very underrated artist.

Thanks for voting everyone and for the nice comments (on here and in PTs). :)

Wasn't it difficult ! I felt "disloyal" to some of my favorite Artists that I left out. I would have been happy with my #11-20 songs for a Top Ten list.

With a half dozen people to vote (+ any regulars who missed nominating) it's wide open again. There's 3 songs with 50 Points or more slugging it out for #1, 7 with 30 + and a heap more with 20 +. Impossible to call.

:headphones:

I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to Farin for the wonderful job he's doing on the ARCHIVE. It's a great read. He's put the year of every song and where it placed.

:coolio:

CCR were always great value for your $1 (cost of a 45 rpm vinyl record back then). Their "B" sides could have stood alone. My favorite double sided hit of theirs is Bad Moon Rising/ Lodi. I'm wondering what your 3rd favorite of their's is CanAm ?

Linda Ronstadt is one of my favorite female artists. I have her "Greatest Hits" 1 and 2 on CD and other older albums on vinyl. And I left out Heatwave. What a traitor !

:P

I just know too many of those good 60s and 70s songs that have been nominated lately Shawna. Do you find that many of of these nominations make you want to listen to the artists' songs ?

I've had Linda Ronstadt (and CCR) CDs on all day. Heatwave isn't really one of my all time favorites of hers though.

okay, strange but true story. :grin:

Whoever it was that nominated "I'd Love You To Want Me" by Bobby Goldsboro... I hadn't heard that song in probably 20 years, forgotten completely about it. But when I saw that nomination, I started singing it in my head.

That was Tuesday. Last night (Wednesday) I was transcribing an interview for a client, and guess what song was playing in the background...?

Things that make you go "hmmmmm...."

I nominated "I'd Love You To Want Me", but I don't know Bobby Goldsboro's version though, just Lobo's. I know what you mean - it's one of those songs that just keeps going in your mind. I love it.

:thumbsup:

I nominated "I'd Love You To Want Me"

What a beautiful song, Olefif!!! :) I had also forgotten about it until some years ago when I found an old tape in the car... a tape I recorded from the radio in the early 70s!
