These were the top 5 singles from exactly 40 years ago this week (before I was born) -- any tunes here you know how to hum?

1. People Got To Be Free - The Rascals
2. Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf
3. Light My Fire - Jose Feliciano
4. Hello, I Love You - The Doors
5. Sunshine Of Your Love - The Cream

And here's the top 5 from this week in 2007 -- how many of these songs will still be remembered 40 years from now? (I've already forgotten all of them!!)

1. Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson - The Way I Are
2. Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry
3. Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah
4. Kanye West - Stronger
5. Sean Kingston - Beautiful Girls

Hmmm. Perhaps you've chosen your comparisons well.
By habit, we've got Radio 2's Sound of the 60s on some Saturday mornings as we busy about doing not much, and you wouldn't beleive how much shite was going around then. Purile drivel. In the charts. Worse than all those 2007 shebangs (whatever they are, 'cept the Timbaland tune, he's good he is. Kanye's not too bad either).
