Here are the clues
to identifying this
week's 10 Dell songs.
Name those tunes!
Don’t be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
Born-a high forever to fly.
Wind-a velocity nil.
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world
I'm just a little boy, live behind a grocery store
I've been watchin' you come and go now
You've been awful careful 'bout the friends you choose
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid its moving without me
Listening for the sound of your knock on my door
Knowing that sweet sound will be no more
All my trouble's been torn in half.
She's the best for miles around
(Dell song #131 is a Memphis sound instrumental. Name the dummy on the right and you'll name that tune.)

Do you have a Shady Dell Top Tunes list of your own that you would like to share? I'd love to see it, especially if it covers a different period of Dell history. It doesn't have to contain 200 songs; even a Top 10 would be interesting and instructive. Submit your Dell's Greatest Hits list in the form of a comment and I'll get it posted.
Have a Shady day!
