Darryl...

First thanks for the Old 55 Rockeet Science system. Works so much better than staring at the monitor and talking to myself. :stars:

Second, using that system last night I picked 20. What I found was that I was bumping the last 6 or 7 songs from the "really good" column to the "I love this frickin song!" column. They were songs that I would not have put onto a top ten ever. So, I can go whichever way the wind blows, but ten seems best to me.

Enjoy the darlings (the parents too). Now someone (not mentioning names here, but it rhymes with heaven)can call you sappy! :)

Fair enough ! We'll stick to the Top Ten. I was a bit worried that picking 20 might be a deterrant anyway. We want as many voters as we can get.

Thanks for your replies. I'm pleased that you feel comfortable to give me your opinions freely and openly - I take that as a compliment.

I'll leave the nominations open overnight (it's approaching 10.00 PM Friday here) and close them tomorrow morning around 8.00 - 9.00 AM our time (depending on when I roll out of bed). It might be the last sleep-in we get while the Grandkids are here.

Thanks CeeCee. I am unashamedly sappy where my Family are concerned, especially my grandaughter and grandson. I wish our other 4 "kids" would get married and give us some more to spoil. Although Young55 is only 23.

:D

I don't want you to run yourself ragged. :grin:

Not much chance of that dear Peaches, although mopping the floors yesterday wasn't much fun. The kids will only make it dirty again.

;)

Hey Katie - look what's #1 in the Songfacts Daily Top Ten ! :thumbsup:

What I do when selecting the tope ten is to paste the whole thing into my reply and then delete the ones I don't want, leaving only the ones I like. Then I leave the most preferable ones and keep deleting till I'm left with 10 and then I shuffle those around in the order I want.

I agree with you on Sleepwalk OLD 55. The only other one that I can think of right off hand might be Green Onions by Booker T. and the MG's

In the scene from LaBamba right after the plane crashes Sleepwalk is playing in the background. That scene truly does feel like the "Day the Music Died".

I´m proud to be her friend... ;) :bow:

I do the same thing. It's so much easier that way and then you are sure that you don't leave out a song.

Pen and Paper? How primitive. :)

Okay, okay, since I apparently can't nominate a Who song without it showing up in the top 10.. :(

I picked Low Spark of High Heeled Boys by Traffic as my final answer replacement. No lifelines, no 50/50. That's my answer, Regis.
