Let’s Do It Again

“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.”
~Sarah Dessen

Last week I played a medley consisting of one #1 song for each year from 1960 through 1969. It seemed to go over quite well so I’m doing the same thing today … but with a slight twist.
Every artist in this medley NEVER had another #1 song.

Play button is on the left … Volume slider is on the right

#1 With A Twist

Drifters – Del Shannon – Gene Chandler
Angels – Manfred Mann – McCoys – Percy Sledge
Strawberry Alarm Clock – Otis Redding – Zager & Evans

    Another great set of songs as always Ray. When I saw the names for the last song I knew exactly what song it was and made me think how I think some songs, stories, shows, movies … whatever give a glimpse into the future … I think this song fits … makes you wonder?? Thanks Ray!!

        Sure did, Del Shannon was always one of my early favorites too. Great oldies listening for a very wintery day in Lincoln Nebraska! Thanks Ray.

    You are becoming a habit at our house! The last one…we are already picking our sons and daughters from tubes!!!
    I don’t think the earth or mankind will make it as far as this song predicts.
    Thanks for the memories once again!
