You’ll never guess which song is most popular with Oldies

Simon_&_Garfunkel_919-3036

Knowing how we love lists, and how controversial they sometimes can be, today I would like to present the Top Ten Oldie Songs as presented by our friend Mark back in 2001. Mark presented us back then with the Top One Hundred as voted for by the AOL Music Oldies Chatroom.

The Top Ten presents us with few surprises, or does it? Which song would you have liked to see in this list, and which song doesn’t belong there? Comments please in the box below.

And now let’s go!!!

[nextpage title=”Oh Pretty Woman”]
Roy Orbison – Oh Pretty Woman is number 7 in our list

[nextpage title=”California Dreaming”]
A well deserved placing for The Mamas And The Papas at number 6, with their possibly most well know song California Dreaming

Maybe somewhat surprisingly, The Skyliners come in at number 5 with Since I Don’t Have You

[nextpage title=”Crazy”]
Patsy Cline in at number 3 with Crazy

[nextpage title=”The Sounds Of Silence”]
Simon and Garfunkel are runners up in this poll, with Sounds Of Silence. Their best song? Or would you prefer Bridge Over Troubled Water for example


[/nextpage]

[nextpage title=”Imagine”]
The winner of this poll is John Lennon with his song of peace Imagine, as relevant today as when it was written
