It's time once again to put your
musical knowledge to the test
as we continue our countdown of
The 200 Greatest Hits of the Shady Dell!
You know the drill. I'll give you a line or two of lyrics taken from five of the most popular Dell songs of the mid 1960s. Your job is to Name That Tune.
Put on your thinking cap. Here are the
lyric samples for the next five Dell songs:
Beware of pretty faces that you find
A pretty face can hide an evil mind
Roll over on your back
I like it like that
Everyday things change
And the world puts on a new face
Certain things rearrange
And this whole world seems like a new place
(listen to me when i'm
speakin','cause you know the
words i'm thinkin')
(and i know that you've been
cheatin', oh, i hope that
we'll be meetin'.)
You're here today and gone tomorrow
Leave this heart of mine in sorrow
Then you come around every now and then
Long enough to hurt me then you're gone again
Now let's find out how well you did.
Here are the Dell songs in today's countdown:
195. "Secret Agent Man" - Johnny Rivers
194. "Land Of 1000 Dances" - Wilson Pickett
193. "The Hunter Gets Captured By
The Game" - Marvelettes (February '67)
192. "Kind Of A Drag" - Buckinghams
191. "You Keep Running Away" - Four Tops

Do you have a top tunes list of your own that you would like to share? I'd love to see it! It doesn't have to contain 200 songs. Even a Top 10 would be interesting and instructive. Submit your song list in the form of a comment and I'll get it posted.
