@Real Music,
I can hear (and probably sing most if not all the words to) all but:

#25
#38
#43
#47
#50
#57
#58
#60 (I know the song but not the artist)
#63
#68
#74
#75
#77
#81
#82
#84
#86
#87
#91

I suspect the 14 that are below #50 are more due to the bigger hits being played on oldies radio (and back in the day) than anything else. Because there are only 5 in the #50 and above group.

@jespah,
I remember #60 House of the Rising Sun as performed by The Animals. Never heard of that one. In fact, I've still got it on a 45.

@jespah,
1. At first glance, some of the songs and artists I instantly recognized,

2. Some of the songs, I don't instantly recognize. but I still might know the songs if I heard them.

3. I will sometime later tonight list the songs, that I instantly recognize.

4. The songs that I don't instantly recognize, I will have to look on youtube, to see if I know those songs or not.

5. Sometimes I might know a song, but not the song title.

1. I definitely know this song, but I never heard this song by this artist.
2. I do remember Aretha Franklin recording this song at some point.
3. I think I might know of some other artists who might have recorded a version of this song.
4. I just viewed a live version of this song by "Simon & Garfunkel" on youtube and I like it.

@Real Music,
Yeah, definitely I may know a song but not its title. The other day, that was true of the Specials' Gangster.

I know pretty much all of them. Some are nice and some are stinkers.

@Real Music,
That's not the same as ours although lots are in the same charts but there is one notable absense.

I am shocked to find Back Home by the England World Cup Squad doesn't appear. It was no 44 over here.

@Real Music,
I realise this may be a tad sideways to this thread - you, RM, appear to be 'inclined' toward 'Real Music'.

I offer you a 'here & now' reviewal experience.

NO INFO.
Watch Fullscreen, Uninterupted "No Small Thing", By Tears For Fears - New release, 2 weeks-old (Not the mediocre pop/Art of the 80's, You'd imagine).

They have more online reactions - Than Abba's comeback, pending.

Not that 'reactions or views' matter - But the reacties and viewers KNOW what's About to 'Fall'.

Anyway - Do, or Don't.

Have a Great Day.
