  1. I was thinking along the same lines as Phil Strawn, but diversity in music wise- in the top ten alone theres ‘Hey Jude’ then down home country ‘Harper Valley,’ thrashy rock of Fire’ proto metal ‘Hush,’ the gentle ups and downs of Sergios elevator muzak ‘Fool On The Hill, teenybop pap pop of ‘1 2 3 Red Light.’ Talk about a market for divergent tastes!
