  1. 30 is an impossible number! I remember a local radio station doing a top 100 of all time and the same 3 songs were always top 3. The order might’ve changed, I don’t remember for sure, but it was always the same 3

    Freebird – Skynyrd
    Layla – Clapton
    Stairway To Heaven – Zeppelin

    I do like this list and thank you for putting it together!🎶💃🏼

    1. My pleasure – it was a really tough list .. but l am going to make Blast from the Past a monthly feature this year and simply plan it differently to hopefully get more people to vote 🙂

      Glad you liked it and thank you too Grandma 🙂
