@DjLorraine Before my time also, but interesting nevertheless, especially how the r&b and rock n roll hits were pressured lower on the charts as opposed to that a/c pop of it's day which was propped up.

  S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Steve S. from Sunset Park:

Love this song by France Gall. It's seems to be based on the classical piece, the "fake Albinoni" Adagio in G Minor... which may or not be based on a baroque manuscript by Albinoni, but maybe was just invented by a 20th century musicologist and Albinoni biographer named Giazotto...

Also, "yeah, but you're not interviewing three Caucasian women today!" If that isn't gratitude and positivity in action and a model for all of us, I don't know what is. There is every reason for them to be bitter that they couldn't perform their song on television, but they're the opposite. An example for us all. Take what happens in stride, and find the positive in it. I needed this lesson.

Seconding the poster who said these ladies need a documentary
  4:47pm Mr. Oxford:

@gtrdirect I agree. My heart was sinking and I felt so sad when I was hearing about that situation. And they when they said 'but you're not interviewing them', it put a big smile on my face. It made my day. We can all learn so much from that. This is an exemplary interview.

@DanFA Yeah, spoken word intros too. Another one of my favourite is on New York Dolls' "Looking for a Kiss". "When I say I'm in love you best believe I'm in love: L-U-V" I think the line was originally from a Shanri-Las song.

@Mr. Oxford - it is
  5:16pm Mr. Oxford:

@JakeGould oh my I forgot the fuzzed out Stooges' "No Fun" has hand claps!

1) absolutely LOVE your show

2) trying desperately (and to no avail) to find a track where the main refrain is “come on and talk to me (take a hit)”, but nothing on this title list seems to match up? the song played at ~8:40 PM (EST)

3) thanks for the best songs 🎶
