200 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell Part 12 (#90 to #81)

It's time to resume our countdown of the 200 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell.

Before we get started, though, I would like to share with you another cold fact about the Dell. As I will do occasionally, I am using a vintage soda pop print advertisement for the purpose of illustration. I hope that you will enjoy these reminders of the past as much as I do. Here's a seasonal Pepsi ad that was published in 1959:

According to an Ettline family member, it was 1959 when one of John's brothers converted the hillside across the road from the Dell into a ski slope. The slope wasn't exactly Ski Roundtop, but it was functional and served as a good little practice hill for local ski enthusiasts.


Okay, let's get down to business. The Shady Dell hit parade now rolls on. Here are this weeks lyrics. Name those tunes!

One kiss from her
And you know your time has come

(The next tune is the summer 1967 hit instrumental by the ill-fated Memphis band that perished with Otis in a plane crash.)

spinnin like a spinnin top

Do me any way you wanna when you wanna
I'll keep you just the same

The world is ours whenever we're together

Don't stand on your block
Come inside
Watch ev'rybody rock

Man this chick upsets me

The bees envy me.

And even if time
Ain't really on my side

don't be shocked
If you see your favorite star

(end of clues)

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!
