Killer bee alert! As we begin counting down the Top 40 songs of the Shady Dell, it’s interesting to note that half of them are fabulous flipsides!
Take a look at the lyrics below and name those tunes!
Was it fun, making me suffer
Old rockin’ chair’s gonna get me
If you are willing, baby I’m able
They are a boy and girl
I know you’re sick and tired of my evil ways
I'm ready to give, as well as take
Every time I see her face
I think about her warm embrace
All the chains in the world
couldn't hold me
hotter than the hottest fire
shocking like electric wire
he can give you the world but he'll never love the waaa-AAY
(end of clues)

Do you have a Shady Dell Top Tunes list of your own that you would like to share? I'd love to see it, especially if it covers a different period of Dell history. It doesn't have to contain 200 songs; even a Top 10 would be interesting and instructive. Submit your Dell's Greatest Hits list in the form of a comment and I'll get it posted.
Have a Shady day!
