10 Greatest Oldies of All Time
Good old oldies...
If you are a Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, or Ke$ha fan, this is not for you. I am here to present the 10 greatest songs from the 60s, 70s, and 80s right here right now. And now, on with the countdown...
P.S. please be free to ask why I am listening to old music and I am 13 years old.
10. Got My Mind Set On You(George Harrison, 1987)
It's hard to believe that 17 years after the Beatles broke up, one of them comes out with a number one hit...and that someone is George Harrison. It's strange how George Harrison had a #1 in 1987 during the pop era. Anyway, this is an upbeat and fun song that reminds you of the good ol' fab four.
9. Mack the Knife(Bobby Darin, 1959)
What else can be said about this song but sheer awesomeness. Still waiting for Justin Bieber to take an opera ballad and make it a doo-wop song. With a powerful horn section and the wonderful voice of Bobby Darin, this is hands down the best song of the 1950s.
8. Who Loves You(The Four Seasons, 1975)
We all know that the Four Seasons were a great doo-wop group, but they could do some mean disco too. This is a great use of the classic Four Seasons falsetto and it's a great song.
7. All My Loving(The Beatles, 1964)
Can't forget a Beatles song in a top 10. The greatest rock band of all time performed this one as their first song in America on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
6. I Just Want to Be Your Everything(Andy Gibb, 1977)
This is a simply beautiful song. We should restrain Snoop Dogg and make him listen to this 1,000 times to show him how to respect women.
5. Copacabana(Barry Manilow, 1978)
Protest all you want, but this one by Barely Man-Enough is actually a really good song. Even if you are a Manilow hater, you can't hate this one.
4. Reach Out I'll Be There(The Four Tops, 1966)
One of the most powerful voices in music, Levi Stubbs shows how it is done in what is considered one of the greatest Motown songs of all time.
3. The Love You Save(The Jackson 5, 1970)
The Jackson 5 were probably the greatest kid group of all time, with young Mike's powerful vocals, and this song is a great example of it.
2. It Only Takes a Minute(Tavares, 1975)
One of the most underrated groups of all time, Tavares gave us a disco masterpiece in '75 with this song.
1. Build Me Up Buttercup(The Foundations, 1969)
What else can be said about it? A great song overall, and this deserves to be number 1.
