The Boys Are Back in Town Thin Lizzy  1976  #12

If it hadn’t been for a couple of DJs in Louisville who put this record into hot rotation, we might not still be listening to this barn burner.  Toxic masculinity never sounded better. For the Pod Squad, who know who they are.    

More Today Than Yesterday  Spiral Starecase   1969   #12

The guys were in the Air Force and played Las Vegas lounges before they had their big hit.

The Chiffons - One Fine Day - 1963 - YouTube

Beyond the Sea Bobby Darin 1959 #6

The song is an English language adaptation of a 1945 French song called “La Mer.” Darin often entered down the aisle when he appeared on Dick Clark's Beechnut Saturday Night TV program. His interaction with the audience is priceless, even if he is lip-syncing.

*Girls Just Want to Have Fun Cyndi Lauper  1984  #2

Requested by Julia for all the fun-loving girls (her words, not mine). You know the video, you love the video, feel free to get up and dance.

I Keep Forgettin' Chuck Jackson 1962 #55

A Goffin-King composition, the song was originally recorded by the Shirelles, but the outcome was not commercial. The Scepter label gave the song to Maxine Brown who had to figure out the song’s central melody from among the Shirelles’ various vocal embellishments.

Never Comes the Day Moody Blues 1969   #91

You Better Think Twice Poco 1970  #72

The contemporary criticism of this great (IMHO) song was that it was "too country for rock and too rock for country." This quirky video from a variety show shot on a docked yacht introduces the band at 0:55.

Give Him A Great Big Kiss Shangri-las 1965 #18
