200 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell Part 15 (#60 to #51)

Soul, blue-eyed soul, and British invasion artists dominate the Shady Dell countdown as we close out the top half of the Top 100.

Take a look at the lyric samples and name those tunes!

Somebody tell me I'm dreaming now

walks real cool, catches everybody's eye

I locked my heart till our wedding day

Can't control the quivering inside

I know we can make love bloom, baby, the second time around.

and likewise if behind is in front then dirt in truth is clean

I'm in no position to want competition.

I was so much older then

You got me walking and talking in a trance

I got the fever, yeah an' you got the cure

(end of clues)

Remember the grading scale:

All 10 right – Congratulations! You’ve been appointed dean of the College of Musical Knowledge.

7-9 right – Licensed lyric lover

4-6 right - Lyrically challenged

1-3 right – Sign up for remedial classes at the School of Rock.

0 right – You just dance and hum along!

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!
