The Original Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Lists 1 to 9

Recommended Posts

Laurie , I figured out your computer problem - it's from too much posting . Take a coffee break here and there away from the terminal and all should be well . ( I can smell smoke from HERE ! ) ;)

All the nominations are so good, I've already picked out a Top 15!!!!

For what it's worth, here are my two cents:

Tempted - Squeeze

These Arms of Mine - Otis Redding

I'm going to try another Beach Boys song...

Wouldn't It Be Nice-The Beach Boys

Machine Gun-Jimi Hendrix

I didn't notice that Wouldn't It Be Nice was already in the in the Top Ten(week 5). So, I'll nominate Sloop John B by The Beach Boys instead.

A tee ? Golfing spoils a nice walk Malakin. I put it right up there with fishing, which is really "line untangling" for me.

:)

Maybe I need another 17,000 Posts Laurie ! I might be down from an XL to an L by then. I'll have to ask my Wife what size I am. I hate clothes shopping.

:)

Who's Susan Tedeshi ??? I'll have to acqire that song and have a listen. :P

I think that's all the regulars - except for Peaches and Levis. Anyone know where they are ? I hope they're OK !

I agree with Jenny, except I've got more than 15. I have my #1 but I really don't know where to start on the rest.

Wow what a list OLD 55; this is going to be tough.

I once sang the "Sloop John B." to a junior high Earth Science class. That was a loooooooooong time ago in a galaxy far far away.

Hi rt ! That's another great song that will have to come into calculations.

Tough is an understatement my friend. I think I'll declare...

NOMINATIONS CLOSED !!!LET'S VOTE.

Take your time voting. Let's allot at least a couple of days for it.

It's 10.00 A.M. Thursday morning here, and we've got our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren back to stay Friday and Saturday nights, so it'll probably be Sunday (our time) when I get round to compiling the Top Ten. It'd be great to have all the votes in by then if possible please. Good luck with your voting. I think this will be the most difficult one yet. (But I say that every time).
