The rockabilly-flavoured Queen hit "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" scored the group another #1 single in 1979-80, lifted off their album 'The Game'. The song was penned by Freddie Mercury.

#1329 DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW AbbaABBA's "Does Your Mother Know" was a  single lifted off 'Voulez Vous'. Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus wrote this 1979 hit.

The title track from Hall & Oates' 1981 album, "Private Eyes" is an upbeat pop/rock song produced by the duo. Daryl Hall co-wrote the US #1 single with Sara Allen, Warren Pash and Janna Allen.

The list is a ranking made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice.This expanded section now includes songs from the last few years. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
5 new songs are added every day from #1201-1500
