  1. Excellent top ten with a few exceptions.
    I looked down the top 40…never heard of Foster Sylvers…sounds like a Jackson 5 ripoff.

    • My wife came in from work when that was on and said- “That is awful” –and I said exactly what you said- a bad Jackson 5 ripoff!! LOL.

    • Thats funny! I look forward to your charts every week because while I love great music…there is a part of me that looks for the F’s because I can’t resist listening to train wrecks…I mean how can you mess up a Jackson 5 vibe?

  2. Pretty good chart, nothing real great but nothing real bad either. LOL on cutting Osmonds slack with a D. Exceptions that are great: George Harrison, Dr. John, and Pink Floyd. Exception on terrible: Playground in my mind. About Gilbert O’Sullivan: a buddy of mine made me a lengthy CD of his music, which he did because I love him. He just kind of faded away 😦

    • That is odd- he had a few big hits in the early 70’s and that was it- O’Sullivan. You never even hear his name anymore.
