MUSIC FACTS/CHARTS SITE (Start Sep 2008)
JULY 2014 UPDATED
Hi Hi Hi,
Our alphabetical Juke Box trawl through the 1950s reaches the letter 'S' this month. For a change this months selections are all lesser know versions of songs I am sure you all know well - which probably means that it doesn't "rock" as much as usual. There are also a few tribute track to composer Gerry Goffin and Soul vocalist Bobby Womack. In both cases there were so many great tracks to choose from. Incidentally, songwriter-stats king Stuart Devoy has a new book out that I think you might like to check out, 'The People Who Created The Soundtrack To Your Life'. Check it out at Amazon.
On the subject of books, you could not do better than checking out MISSING CHARTS the new book that for the first time ever includes British Best Selling Singles charts for 1940-1952. Check it out at http://www.missingcharts.co.uk/ .
Newcomers to the site are recommended to check out all the folders on the left as many of them contain lots of most interesting facts, figures and trivia from the 1950s and 1960s.
