For the week ending Friday July 31, 2015

Yes there were some glitches such as slow loading of Reverb songs. I am working on a way to make it faster so you can hear the Top 5 Songs that currently are not on the radio but well loved by music followers worldwide.

A would first like to note that ever since AM radio had Top 40 hits and Billboards Top 100 that everyone wanted to get on the list as it increased exposure and revenue, not just for the artists but also for the record companies, and ancilarily, to radio stations.

What I like about the old top 40 layout back in the day was that it was not limited to one single genre. What I hear on radio of "top hits" is generally all the same genre and aimed at girls between the ages of 14 and 24.

In olden tymes, AM top 40 had crossover music. For instance at Super CFL or old WLS in Chicago, you would have Billy Preston's "Outta Space" an instrumental fighting its way to the top with Emerson Lake and Palmer's "From the Beginning". Then you had Chicago's "Saturday in the Park" going up against such songs as Vicki Lawrence's "Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia", Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy", Deep Purples "Smoke on the Water", Grand Funk's "Rock N Roll Soul", "Motorcycle Mama" by Sailcat, "Rocket Man" by Elton John, Michael Jackson doing "I Wanna Be Where You Are", The Temptations epic song "Papa Was A Rollin Stone", and Rick Springfield's "Speak to the Sky".

Talk about variety!

So what's your point Robert?? Well, dear grasshopper, my Top  5 Hits (or aptly, should be hits) run the gamut of genres. I will include instrumentals, live tracks, alternate versions, metal, rock, blues, pop, folk. But being the man who edits this I will not allow anything objectionable.
By the way, I do not get paid for selecting any of these songs so if you find a song completely repulsive, let me know and I will handle it with utmost care.

Between my staff and others who rated last weeks five songs, as well as based on their fans comments the following song has become this weeks number 1:
