30 Apr 2009, 05:27 by JJMCSPoohI actually took the top 50 questionaire and just repeated the questions over again. I also went to random.org to mix up the order differently from last time. I did all this cuz I was bored lol.
1. How did you get into 100? [Elton John] Through The Lion King, which is my favorite film of all time!
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 99? [Miriam Makeba] "Amampondo" because that's the first track on Welela.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 17? [LL Cool J] "Forget Oreos, eat Cool J cookies!" followed closely by "I'll crush you like a jellybean." Basically "I'm Bad" contains my favorite lyrics from him.
4. How did you get into 90? [Mya] Saw her on TV. By the time I saw "Fallen," I had the hugest crush on her!
5. How many albums by 77 do you own? [Soul For Real] 1.
6. What is your favorite song by 49? [Billy Joel] Other than "Why Should I Worry" from Oliver & Company (I'm a Disney fanatic if you can't tell lol), "River of Dreams."

7 Sep 2008, 06:26 by JJMCSPoohWell, I omitted groups (any act that contains more than one person such as TLC), so it may not be accurate. Oh, and artists that appear twice (such as Shanice and Shanice Wilson) will only be counted once. With those things out of the way, it comes down to these 66 artists...

21 Jan 2008, 17:31 by 2SerenityToday in the United States, it is a Federal Holiday in celebrating, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday.
There was a lot of lobbying done in order to make the holiday be recognized. A year after Dr. King's death in 1969, the paper work and lobbying started and it was not until President Regan decided to sign Dr. King's birthday over as a National Holiday. Some states did not recognize the King Holiday in the beginning. A lot of tension was still in America then about the holiday (and still is) but not as much now.
Please check out this video in celebration of Dr. King's birthday.
I must have been about 11 when this video came out. I still know all the words. Everyone was so happy and elated that Dr. King would be celebrated at a National level. [I wish the song was still available. I have a 45 of the song somewhere in my junk at my parents house.]
22 Aug 2007, 12:03 by Nectar_CardFor a streamable tag radio of all the artists listed here, click here for Motown records radio
Motown Records, also known as Tamla-Motown outside of the United States, is a record label originally based out of Detroit, Michigan ("Motor City"), where it achieved widespread international success. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as the first record label owned by an African American and primarily featuring African American artists to regularly achieve crossover success and have a widespread, lasting effect on the music industry.
Incorporated on 12 January 1959 by Berry Gordy, Jr. as Tamla Records, Motown has, over the course of its history, owned or distributed releases from more than 45 subsidiaries in varying genres, although it is most famous for its releases in the musical genres of R&B, hip hop, pop, and soul. Motown left Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972, and remained an independent company until 1988, when Gordy sold the company to MCA. …
3 Mar 2007, 11:50 by oemebamoBorn into a music family, Peter Major aka Opolopo got obsessed with sounds very early and started devoting most of his time to become a musician and producer himself. Opolopo, the name which means ‘plenty’ in Yoruban, has already had an album and many remixes under his belt but what really brought him the wider respect from people like Patrick Forge, Daz-I-Kue or Kyoto Jazz Massive is his latest single, ‘Life is a Dance’ feat. Amalia released last year by the Japenese Especial Records. Peter talked to Beyondjazz about his journey so far, the forthcoming album and the buzz in ‘07.
Hi Peter, I know you were born in Hungary and now you live in Stockholm. How long have you been living in Sweden actually?
My family defected when I was two and we ended up in Sweden. So I’ve lived here practically all my life.
When did music enter into your life and how much your musician parents influenced you as a kid? Did you rebel against them music wise?
11 Apr 2006, 00:26 by Tr1xxWell, I made up a similar list for a Northern Soul Top 100, so here's my equivalent DISCO version. As with that one, it's a personal and totally subjective list, and some folks will moan that "___" isn't really disco, well tough! Incidentally, I'm including 1980 chart entries, (basically because it's my list!), and I've only included tracks that I already possess. Time to turn up the hi-fi and get those feet tappin'...
