Australia's Marcia Hines reached #2 in 1977 with a cover of Tom Snow's "You" from her 'Ladies And Gentleman' LP. His original was on the 1975 album 'Taking It All In Stride'.

#1422 REFLECTIONS Diana Ross & The Supremes
"Reflections", written by the Holland/ Dozier/ Holland team, was the 1st issued under the name 'Diana Ross & The Supremes'. It peaked at #2 for 2 weeks in the USA in 1967.

Singer/ songwriter Tom Rush recorded the original version of "No Regrets" in 1968. The Walker Brothers' cover was their chart comeback hit in 1975, reaching the UK Top 10.

#1424 MY BOY LOLLIPOP Millie Small
"My Boy Lollipop" was the 1st global reggae hit. Jamaican Millie's ska remake peaked at #2 in the UK & US in 1964. The song was written by Johnny Roberts, Morris Levy and Robert Spencer.

#1425 THE CRYING GAME Boy George
In 1964, Dave Berry had the original version of Geoff Stephens' "The Crying Game". Boy George's cover- produced by The Pet Shop Boys- was the title theme from 1 of 1992's best films.

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
