Was it Elton John who once said his songs were ‘disposable’? If its disposable how come people like you and me still enjoy old pop songs 50-something years later?
This site is a celebration of the music that dominated the airwaves during the ‘Golden Age’ of pop/rock from the years 1963 through 1988. You will find every one of the songs that made the Billboard Top 40 as well as songs that made the lower Top 100, all listed by year and by month, with Top 40 highest position and a wealth of other information, including:
- artist who first recorded the song
- other artists who recorded the song
- contributing musicians
- interesting information about the making of the recording or history of the song
- Grammy awards attributed to the song
Some entries have a lot of information, some have very little; however this is a ‘live’ document that is continually being updated. So come back often!
