    Not a bad 'countdown'. Completely surprised Physical was not #1. Even more surprised it did not make the countdown.

    That was an interesting fun countdown... Agree with you on 'Physical'... I liked the majority of songs on there, I must say.

    Same here.

    I had thought the countdown might be filled with Paula Abdual, Tiffany, Whiney Houston, We are the World or Endless Love.

    I agree with some, but not others.
    As cheesy as some of those songs sound today, most of them were pretty big hits. With a few exceptions, most of those songs sounded good in context, but just did not stand the test of time.

    Agreed. There were some good tracks there. The Funky Town cover was 80's awesome with some really good guitar.

    They should have used the Lipps Inc. original from 1980.

    I eliminated the non-70's tunes. Remember, they edit the crap out of the show for no reason.

    They may drop the Xmas tunes too.

    Lou Simon plays the 40 biggest hits from this week in December, 1967! It’s a great chart that features superstars like The Beatles, The Monkees, Motown legends, British hits and lots more. (2 hrs)

    Well, the Xmas tunes I left in were from the 70's, so who knows?

    They seem hell bent to get the countdown to fit into 2.5-3 hours so anything is possible.

    This week, Lou Simon plays the 40 biggest hits from this week in December, 1969! As the '60s came to a close, the chart was filled with superstars of the past like The Beatles and The Supremes, as well as newcomers like Led Zeppelin and The Jackson 5. It’s a great way to celebrate the holidays and rediscover a great top 40 list from Christmas week, 1969! (2 hrs)

There’s a TV show theme, a song about our military heroes, one-hit wonders, country legends and a brand new Beatles single. Plus, get the stories behind the songs. (2 hrs)
