ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson collaborated with Tim Rice to create the musical "Chess" which featured the 1984 global hit "One Night In Bangkok".

#1337 (I WOULD) DIE FOR YOU Antique
The duo Antique represented Greece in the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest. Their song "Die For You" featured words by Antonis Pappas and music from Nikos Terzis and finished 3rd.

#1338 OVER MY HEAD Fleetwood Mac
Group member Christine McVie contributed "Over My Head" for Fleetwood Mac's 1975 eponymous album which catapulted the 8 year-old band into million-selling territory.

#1339 CHERISH Kool and the Gang
James "J. T." Taylor started the ball rolling on the pretty ballad "Cherish", which later featured input from the rest of his group Kool & The Gang. The song peaked at #2 in the USA in 1985.

  and The Sunshine Band
Disco act KC & The Sunshine Band scored  its 3rd US #1 with "Shake Your Booty" in 1976. Group members Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch wrote and produced the song.

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
