200 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell Part 18 (#30 to #21)

Okay - no more fooling around. It's time to separate the rats from the mice. We're entering the land of the giants - the Shady Dell Top 30!

Every song listed here was solid Dell gold...all killer, no filler!

Look at my lyrics clues and name those tunes!

You know it hit me like a ton of bricks one day

baby, baby, you're my world

when I break her heart
tear it all apart

stay out of that bag

There’ll be no rush, we’ll take it slow

What is the hottest thing around?

I´m on the go
Rain, sleet, or snow.

We go together like hand and glove

Talkin’ ‘bout 1966 now

Take the time to meet me

(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!
