    What ever happened to the "Wher in the world is CK?" Wonder why it stopped. It stopped being funny after the second time they did it. So that's not the reason.

    Right?

    I was looking down this list and while I like a few of these songs very much (Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a classic forever), there are a lot of absolute turds on this list.

    Not one shitty rap song, not one drum machine. Even the turds are still a cut above the audible diarrhea of today!

    Nothing better then 70s AM radio hits. Listen to Kasem on Sirius every weekend. Reminds me of my Mispent youth.

    I have a small collection (about 200) of records from the mid to late '80s of Casey' AT40. I like to listen to them in the garage when I'm cleaning my car, it reminds me of my childhood. Good shit!

    Actually very little of what I like listening to has ever done great on the charts. A few here and there. There's good music from the 60's to 90's for sure, the more recent years I wouldn't really know.

    I guess the CK bit got tired so they moved on to fresh topical bits like Charlie Sheen impressions. ;)

    Some classics on this list, especially War the song and War the band.

    All of those songs are still better than today's top 40.
