Yep…another garbage collection of tunes that don’t really fit into our other categories…

we try our best not to duplicate songs but as our lists grow there’s more of a chance of duplication…so even though we try our best to avoid it, some of these songs may also be found on other lists…

and, as always, these are songs we have Blipped in the past…and all links go to the Blip…however, as always, Blip may not always have them available.

Generally speaking we don’t Blip a lot of ‘ new ‘ songs…we tend more toward older songs and classic oldies…and more specifically one-hit wonders and rare songs…


Because the ‘ new ‘ popular stuff gets played all the time…whereas the stuff we play sometimes doesn’t even get played at all.

And it’s cool giving the new generation a taste of our music, the stuff we grew up on…and sparking a few memories for our generation in the process.

This will be our final music collection…we’ve created 20 lists ( including this one ) with hundreds of songs…most of which are one-hit wonders and classic rock oldies…

17 of these lists are complete…as of right now…at the time of this post.

We hope you’ve enjoyed listening to these songs as much as we have playing them and creating these lists.
