Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Music #4


Each week I feature 10 groovy albums that have appeared on the Billboard 200 (aka Top LPs) chart during the last 50+ years. You can vote for your three favorites, and the five with the most votes move on to the following week when five new albums will be added to the list.

Last week the Grease soundtrack claimed the top spot, receiving 43 votes out of the 212 cast. And this week it will be challenged by Pat Benatar, Supertramp and the Carpenters.

1) Grease soundtrack (Last Week #4, Week 3) - #1 the week of October 14, 1978



2) Xanadu soundtrack/Olivia Newton-John and Electric Light Orchestra (W2) - #4 the week of October 11, 1980

As the ever fabulous Barbra would sing: "Mem'ries, light the corners of my mind..." This week I'm voting for Grease and Xanadu (again). But this week I also get to vote for Karen & Richard and their fabulous 1970 album (which, I might add, was the FIRST album I ever owned. It was a birthday gift that year, and I played it till I made my Mother very nearly crazy! I still have the vinyl album, but now I also own the CD. Such wonderful memories.)

My FIRST album was the Carpenters' "The Singles 1969-1973", which I received on my 9th birthday. Thanks for voting and sharing your wonderful memories, Lance!
