The Original Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Lists 1 to 9

Recommended Posts

Many, many years ago Edna. In fact too many. I think I would have been 18 in 1967. I really don't remember now why it was R rated. Maybe they showed a littl bit of Anne Bancrofts' skin. I just don't remember, but at the time I am sure I took notice.

I saw "The Graduate" in the early seventies... I was 11 in 1967, I don´t thinkI would have been impressed then...

I love both of those RonJon, especially "Both Sides Now". I saw Judy Collins in concert about 7 or 8 years ago. She put on a great concert. I loved her rendition of "Amazing Grace".

For my nominations....

Pride and Joy-Stevie Ray Vaughan

Blowin' In The Wind-Bob Dylan

With permission from Old, I'm going to change my nomination from Blowin' In The Wind to Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison.

So, that would make my nominations: Pride And Joy-Stevie Ray Vaughan and Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison

My apologies to Dylan.

Hi jman ! With further apologies to Bob, I have about a half dozen versions of Blowin' In The Wind, but not his ! I like Peter, Paul & Mary's. He's an amazing songwriter though. I will surprise you all and nominate one of his recordings some day (not as obvious as Like A Rolling Stone).

Nice ones CeeCee. :)

I've added them above.

A couple of regulars still to nominate. We'll keep nominations open for another day perhaps. This Top Ten #9 is for period ending 15th May !We might have to have a fun "Topical Ten" sometime to "fill in".

Phil suggested "Top 10 Worst Songs", but the only trouble there is that some of us love songs that others hate (Africa, Walking On Sunshine, etc. - I like them, but I know a couple of people who don't).

Thanks Judo ! I reckon I can squeeze that one into my Ten, because I'm a big Leo Sayer fan. He lives in Australia full time now, but I think he's in semi - retirement.

Thanks levis and Welcome Back !!! Still a couple of regulars to nominate; I hope I don't have to go behind the bike sheds to get them. ALL Songfactors are welcome of course. Just nominate two songs that aren't in the Official Songfacts Daily or Weekly Top Tens, and when nominations close, vote in order for your favorite ten songs from the list.
