  1. There are a few really great ones on this list. The one that really jumps out to me is the Billy DeVaughn song Just Be Thankful. “Diamond in the back sun roof top, diggin the scene with the gansta lean..” Brilliant.

  2. Very good top 40…no F’s in this one! I say that with a little disappointment lol.
    I was 7 at this time and I remember clearly hearing some of these for the first time then…The Air That I Breathe comes to mind.
