This is a collection of rock classics that didn’t make our one-hit wonders lists, didn’t make our number one hit lists, and didn’t make our specialized lists…but we have played them on Blip and feel they ought to be on a list…

this is a work in progress as we back-track through our Blips…as said, every one of these songs we have Blipped…if we haven’t Blipped them before they won’t be on this list…

this list may or may not contain ‘ all ‘ the songs we’ve Blipped that are not on our other lists…we’ve Blipped a lot of songs…far too many ( even eliminating the songs on other lists ) for this page alone…if necessary we will add additional pages as we don’t like to have more than 100 songs on a page…

most of these songs were very popular at one time or another, and you should be able to remember most of them…even if you are very young you’ve probably heard them played someplace at sometime…

these songs are random and do not reflect any specific time period…this will be, for all intents and purposes, our most disorganized and chaotic list…

in other words, our garbage list…without the garbage…

Note: a couple of these may not be considered ‘ classics ‘ yet…but they were included because we did Blip them, and they certainly will be classics.
