Hi Edna,

Thanks for the info on John Lennon's Isolation. Will try to get a copy and have a listen.

Just this morning I was listening to Needles & Pins; you have my vote on this nomination. Need to strike it off my prospective listing.

Cheers!

Judo.

I think those CDs may have been the first ones I saw with "Explicit Lyrics" warnings - and they were probably pretty tame by today's standards.

:P

I noticed that warning on GN'R's Greatest Hits, but for the longest time I couldn't find any expletives, until I heard the one in the spoken part of "Knocking On Heaven's Door".

Ok guys I am going to try and sneak an instrumental into our top 10.

1. Love is Blue. Paul Mauriat. I remember this song well. A beautiful instrumental from '68. At the time it came out I was working on the Marshall University campus radio station. Everytime it played I would think about a certain blond that worked at the station. The only problem was that I was too shy to do anything about it. Yes I was a little shy sophomore. Oh those were the days my friends.

2. For some of us old farts I am going try and conger up some votes for a 50's classic. In honor of our up and coming season here in the northern hemisphere I am putting up for consideration

"Summer Time Blues" by Eddie Cochran.

"I called my congressman and he said quote, I would like to help you son, but you're too young to vote". Eddie Cochran. Is this not just like a typical politician; What's in it for me!

Hopefully no summer time blues for this "cool cat".

I remember this song so well... I had to learn by heart the whole list of "verbes intransitifs" (no idea of how to say this in English... homework!) so I picked this tune that was sounding on the radio... I still remember my lyrics: "Faire, rendre, nommer, élire, proclammer, créer, instituer...etc"

Thanks Edna..as for Love Is Blue....that is quite a choice. I t is the kind of song that draws you in and keeps you in a special place. In the big scheme of musical tastes, it is a unique song with a great chance of making the top10.

Boy Oh Boy. This sure is Classicsville ! We could make an Album just from these nominations (which I'll list out shortly). I'm really looking forward to seeing how this Top Ten pans out. The part that will hurt most is that we're going to have to leave out some great songs in our picks.

Two great instrumentals I noticed, Love Is Blue and Green Onions. I think Jessica has gained the most points of any other instrumental to date.
