Re: [Classic_Rock_Forever] Re: Song of the year 1977 finals rd. 1


I enjoy the chart events. I don't compare years, I just take the songs at
face value and pick the 10 best in my mind. Sometimes its difficult to know
who to cut, especially as the field narrows. My latest trick was to ask
myself, if a particular song came on the radio, would I turn away or turn up
the volume. Worked well with the 1966 list.

The match up game hasn't grabbed me. Honestly, when I see names like Dolly
Parton I glaze over. No offense to Dolly's legions of fans, it just doesn't
work for me.

I plan to do 1963-1989. The 1990's I'm doing in the match-up game since the
chart stuff wasn't good enough to bother. Not seeing much participation
here, should I stop posting the match-up show here?
