I am so glad you & Floydy, Longdogs & I hope others like JD. I was & still am a very loyal fan, though he hated us being called fans, we were friends of JD in his fan club. I went to many of his concerts here in England & I have lots of his C/D's, Albums, DVD's, books, posters etc.

It's always good to see a real fan of a certain performer. I go to concerts and they tend to come out of the woodwork from their 'normal' lives in their fan-worship t-shirts and other gear, as I do when I see a Pink Floyd cover band!
John Denver was a legend. A great performer and one of those singers who fitted in just as easily with the country scene as he did easy-listening, rather like Glen Campbell did (who will be featured later)

It's lovely to see you in here, Tiffany. Hope you enjoy the music

Kicked off with a cracker there Flloydy.

Was a massive UB40 fan in 1980 having moved on from Punk to Ska/New Wave/Reggae and got in to the Rude Boy scene.
Saw every TwoTone/Ska band but never got to see this lot.......big regret!

Oh no.F's created another monster.Floydy? more like Frankenstein.
I can only agree about UB40.Big disappointment.Their first albums really had something to say.But they've made a lot of money with their covers so it's understandable I suppose.

They're still going Moscow, on tour regularly. I wouldn't want to see them though and I doubt they would play that first single anymore.

Lol! Frankenstein? The Edgar Winter Group! Didn't quite make the cut mate
yes, it's all about business at the end of the day but it's a shame money takes the place of creativity and songwriting skills.

Great to see you both back for this latest endless adventure we have here

Brilliant.Not satisfied with a terrific thousand but a list of relegated teams as well.

I would promote The Ace and the two Americas myself.

I may not list all the rest. It's too complicated as I think a thousand songs are plenty enough anyway?

The Ace song is excellent. I saw Paul Carrack perform the song live last year. America may appear later on...

Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Tracks

Many of the songs I have selected for the list are because they bring back certain memories. They remind of places and events in my life. Whilst some tracks may seem a little bizarre for inclusion, some even rather cheesy, they all have a reason to be featured. The following few are no exception.

No.993: “Phantom 309” by Red Sovine (1967)
The country music trucker. Woodrow Wilson “Red” Sovine lived and breathed the highways and freeways setting up his guitar and mic at rural outposts singing his ‘road death songs’ he wrote in his “big 10-wheelers”.
He scored a massive UK hit in 1981 with the song ‘Teddy Bear’, which I cannot stand but this one about a truck driver (what else?) who unfortunately gets caught up in a tragic accident is superb (in a morbid sort of way).



No.992: “They Don’t Know” by Tracey Ullman (1983)
I just love it. It’s bouncy, happy and was written by the late Kirsty MacColl. Love the way Ullman says the word “Bayy-bee” like a typical 1960’s teen beat song would.



No.991: “Begin The Beguine” by Julio Iglesias (1981)
A guilty pleasure of mine is listening to many rather cheesy easy listening songs – Andy Williams and Burt Bacharach are particular favourites. I just love that ‘Pan-Am/Love Boat’ orchestral choral sound, mostly featured on tracks from the late 1960’s.
Former Real Madrid goalie Iglesias hit universal stardom overnight with this early 80’s cover written by Cole Porter. It just oozes lush sexual class, in a Barry White-style way!



No.990: “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston (1987)
Twenty-two in the summer of 1987. Silk shirt, chinos and a reminiscence of a dance I had at a local nightclub with a girl which led onto other things…



No.989: “La Isla Bonita” by Madonna (1986)
Brings back memories of my time in Belize four years after this song. We would visit an island caye called San Pedro which I always thought Madonna was singing about in this song. My illusions were shattered later in life when I discovered that there are eight ‘San Pedros’ around the world and she had probably never even been to Belize. The song still reminds me of the place though, but that’s as far as my fondness goes for Madonna.



No.988: “Stay With Me Till Dawn” by Judie Tzuke (1979)
A hauntingly beautiful ballad from 1979, my favourite year in music.



I’ll be more serious with the next couple of songs. A couple of rarities heading your way soon.
