Thanks Again Rich Appel for the IRS Top 104

Rich Appel looks somewhat silly in picture as he listens to a small transistor radio from the early 1960s.  Every year he asks oldies enthusiast to submit a list of records that they feel should have charted in the Top 10, but did not.  Right now on Bob Radil's 60s 70s show Rich and Bob are counting down the top 104 from that list.  I am not a "chart guy" but I appreciate all the effort that Rich puts into this countdown. It is always nice to hear songs that are rarely heard on the radio.  Here are my entries this year:

River Deep Mountain High - Ike and Tina Turner
Just Like A Woman - Bob Dylan
Hurricane - Bob Dylan
Tangled Up in Blue - Bob Dylan
Can You Please Crawl out your window - Bob Dylan
Catch the Wind - Donovan
There is a Mountain - Donovan
Matchbox - Beatles
8 Miles High - Byrds
So You Want to Be a Rock n Roll Star - Byrds
My Back Page -  Byrds
A Hazy Shade of Winter - Simon and Garfunkel
At the Zoo - Simon and Garfunkel
Scarborough Fair (Canticle) - Simon and Garfunkel
Open the Door to You Heart - Darrell Banks
The Weight - The Band
Soul Finger - Bar Kays
Detroit City - Bobby Bare
Ain’t Nobody Home - BB King
Suite Judy Blue Eyes - Crosby Stills and Nash
Woodstock - Crosby Stills Nash and Young
Teach Your Children - Crobsy Stills, Nash and Young
Killer Joe - Rocky Fellers
Tell Me - Rolling Stones
Dandelion - Rolling Stones
Follow that Dream - Elvis Presley
If I can Dream - Elvis Presley
Kentucky Rain _ Elvis Presley
Girl Don’t Come - Sandie Shaw

good list bruce. did not realize many of your songs were eligible. I always go for songs that did not even make the top 40 and forget worthy songs like yours. maybe next year I will make it easy on myself and get a list of songs that peaked at #11 and #12. on the other hand can we start a campaign to list the old philosopher eddie Lawrence doing we love yuh mets.
