Your favorite song from each year?


Les R.

Recommended Posts

OK, this is another "list" thread, and will require some effort, but it's fun! Focusing on the Classic Hits era (1964-89) or any portion thereof, what is your favorite song from each year? I found 1976-1978 were so very difficult to choose. But in the 2000s, half the years I've had trouble finding even one song I like a lot (as indicated by lower case lettering). And Eric, we would LOVE to see your list!!! So this would be a WONderful place for you to just jump back onto the board. ** (Hint, Hint!) **

Tough assignment, Les! I might have to do this in 10-year increments.

You must have used Top 100 singles charts as a starting point. I'd have a lot of stuff that would be off the charts, so to speak. (I'd have an easier time picking a favorite album every year :-!)

Yup, I'd have to look at a Singles chart to remember tunes from years gone by.
