TOP SONGS LIST - 1950s    TOP SONGS LIST - 1960s

Return to -  Song Collection HOME



While growing up in Jefferson, Georgia I was fortunate enough to always have good Top Forty or County and Western radio stations to listen to and help me break the small town boredom. I listened to stations like WJJC with Bill Anderson as the DJ, WIMO in Winder and , of course, the Atlanta stations like WQXI, Y106 and others.   Early on it was fifties and sixties Top Forty with a movement to County and Western as the Hard Rock Scene came into prominence.  I was never big on rock 'n' roll from the mid-seventies on as it became just a mass of non-sensical verbage and vulgar langauge and insinuations. Then of course "Rap" came on the scene.  I don't think I have ever listened to a Rap song in my life, but what small portions I have listened too, has convinced me it is not something I want to gravitate toward.  You won't see any Rap music listed among my favorites.  

Elvis, the Beatles, Some Mo-Town groups, Buddy Holly, the Animals, Meat Loaf,  Cat Stevens and later as I moved in the country direction, Johnny Horton, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Reba and Dolly, Alabama and even the Dixie Chicks, despite their radical political activism,  recorded some of my favorite songs. Probably my favorite  singers of this day are Sugarland and Alan Jackson. 

If I have  all-time favorites from this list ~ they could very well be "Morning has Broken" by Cat Stevens, "You are so Beautiful" by Joe Cocker, "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones and for what ever reason "Living Next Door to Alice" by Smokie.  There are some very good songs and videos on this page presentation.  I hope you enjoy them.
