Top 40 of all time - Here's the Top Five






These are the Top Five 'pop' Songs, as listed in the Top 40 at http://top40.about.com/od/top10lists/tp/top40essentialsongsalltime.03.htm

But I have purposely put them in random order. Now, guess which order they come in and you'll win ... the congratulations of those around you. (Prizes are too complicated here!)

There are certainly some surprises in the list and the order in which they're placed! I think Heartbreak Hotel is the only Elvis song here - and it doesn't rank highly. Louis Armstrong doesn't crack a mention (whereas Bobby Darren's version of Mack the Knife does)- neither does Take Five by Brubeck. Huh, we'll all disagree on some points, won't we - Take a look - if you're under 40 you may not know some of them.
