Who Needs Craigslist? We Got Jerre's List!

Hot on the heels of my 10 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell...

Jerre Slaybaugh, known to one and all as Dell Rat Jerre, has submitted a Top 10 Dell songs list of his own!

As you recall, my list covered the 22-month span from December 1965 through September 1967, the period of time during which I rushed, pledged and was inducted into our beloved Phi Della Ratta. Jerre's list of the Top 10 Dell Songs is skewed toward doo-wop and covers the period from 1959 through 1965 when he was a Dell regular.

Let's find out which songs were burning down the barn back in Jerre's heyday. Here's Jerre's list of the Top 10 Dell Songs!

10. "Hey You" - Imaginations (1961)

9. "Coney Island Baby" - Excellents (December 1962)

8. "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss" - Jive Five (August 1965)

7. "Ooo Baby Baby" - Smokey & the Miracles (May 1965)

6. "I Don't Mind" - James Brown (June 1961)

5. "Time is On My Side" - Rolling Stones (December 1964)

4. "Maybe, Maybe, Baby" - Magnificent Men (Sept. 1966)

3. "Deserie" - Charts (July 1957)

2. "Close Your Eyes" - Five Keys (March 1955)

1. "Human" - Tommy Hunt (October 1961)

Thank you, Jerre, for showing us your list of the top 10 Dell goldens from the early to mid 60s!

"Wildwood Days" - Jerre Slaybaugh & his daughter
Jerre's compilation provides valuable insights into the type of music the gang was dancin' and romancin' to in the months and years before I joined the club.








Again...
many thanks
to my good friend
and fellow
Dell rat,
Jerre Slaybaugh!







How about you, friend?

Yeah you...the guy in the Woody Woodpecker pajamas pouring PBR on his Froot Loops. For the love of Pete, man, it's three in the afternoon, dontcha think it's time to get dressed? Why don't you do what Dell Rat Jerre did? If you have a Shady Dell Top Tunes list of your own then please share it. 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!
