Oldies?
« on: March 07, 2011, 05:52:21 PM »
As I was doing my daily activities and just listening to the digital radio station provided through our cable system I found I was enjoying almost every song that played.  As the wine poured and the music got louder, found myself be bopping around the house being productive and decided to add it to my favorites.  The horror, it's called rock and roll oldies.  Bring on the depends and slap me old, cause that's still the best shit ever.  I think they oughta rename it "music that had words".  And as I'm typing this, they included John Denver's "Thank God I'm a country boy".  I'm pertty sure that wasn't considered rock and roll way back when.

I listen to oldies sometimes in my work truck. Heard "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by the tokens, and "In The Year 2525" by Zager & Evans, and also "Witch Doctor" and "Little Nash Rambler"

"OOO-EEE-OOO-AH-AH-TING-TANG-WALLA-WALLA-BING-BANG" :)

Anyway--before I notice, I've turned it up and am actually SMILING(?)  I know--WTF???

Tomas, Sly Stone was a DJ on one of the local Soul Stations KDIA AM 1310 Oakland Ca, when I was a 10 yrs old before he became BIG w/ Sly And The Family Stone  ;) so do the math, and you'll fine out how old I'm  and what part of the country I grew up in ;D

though I can agree with quite a bit of this list, you can tell it's not quite right ie based on actual sales. I mean Timberlake has only had two albums (he was going to stay in acting; but word is he's working on disc #3) and yet placed 66; while the Bee Gees are at 88. (If this list had been compiled closer to the late 70s, as some were talking about in this thread, the BGs would have been much, much higher on the list.)

Plus I would have listed Paul above John; but it's interesting to see the Beatles influence so much with position #1, #31 and #36

I would have put Paul above John too..   Part of me doesn't get people's infatuation with Bob Dylan.  Aside from seeming like an ass, he is hard to look at, and has one of the worst voices recorded in my opinion.   But, some of his lyrics are pretty deep, and there's no doubt he has song writing talent.  While watching the top 100 they mentioned many of the songs he wrote for other artists and they were all huge hits.

;) I agree
the only song of his that I ever much cared for was "you belong to me"; but I think that was only because it was in the "Natural Born Killers" soundtrack and fit so well. LOL

thinking back to the 60s-70s again, I'm surprised the Supremes, Carpenters, Streisand, or Styx didn't make the list; or Duran Duran from the 80s. but at least the list was sensible enough to leave Britney off. LOL
