    as it plays.

    It is difficult. I've done pretty well, I think, but, some of the groups, well, I can't remember them. Even if I had more than a few seconds.

    •  i can name almost all of them (2+ / 0-)

      it was a wonderful experience

      i think I only missed five or six in all of Chartsweep One

      I haven't listened to Chartsweep Part Two yet--I probably know less than a third of those

      •  Some of them, I knew the song, (2+ / 0-)

        but couldn't spit out the name in time. Then, I couldn't think of the previous song once the next one started.

        Part two, not as much fun. For me, at least.

        I find I know more about the songs from the 50's, before I was born, than the 80's, which were my prime years. Lots of drum machine-filled, big-haired ballads.

        It did amuse me to hear 2 songs by Rick Astley.

        Somewhat shocking, are the great artists that had many hits, but, apparently no number 1s. And some of the repeat performers that DID have number 1s. There were definitely some slow weeks in music.  lol

          I didn't notice any other obvious omissions

            i listened to it again and My Sweet Lord was there.

            it just didn't get its full four seconds so it went by really fast
