  1. Once again, the diversity is crazy- Motown and Dean Martin, Lorne Green jostling with the Rolling Stones, Sinatra, Roger Miller, Sam Cooke, the Kinks, Zombies, Shangri-Las, Tony Bennett something for everyone crammed in that Top Forty.

  2. Baby Love – well deserved high placement on the list, still holds up today.
    You Really Got Me – Kinks, was way ahead of its time in my opinion…a raw aggressive ‘punk’-y record, another that still holds up today. . .
    Love the song Let It Be Me.. but for that one it has to be the Everly Brothers..one of the best love songs ever.
