  1. Matt Shotkin says:

    This is a good countdown so far: I’m enjoying the music:

  2. Mary Shaw says:

    its Awesome!!! Hearing a lot of songs I hardly hear!!! Love it!!! I just don’t like the football part😦

  3. Mary Shaw says:

    Heard songs from Bread!! put that in your schedule during the week, they are Awesome!!!

    1. carolanne says:

      Was there a girl who didn’t own that Bread album? Loved it!

  4. this list is unbelievable….can’t wait to see # 1

  5. Stan says:

    TOOOOOOOOOO Many Spots, the same spots over and over again

  6. Stan says:

    Big Jay Sorenson is the only Jock fitting to end the countdown for 2011. BE BIG

  7. David Rodriguez says:

    Great music, as always! Just curious… many votes did Number 1001 get and how many votes did Number 1 ?

  8. oldies76 says:

    Brown Eyed GIrl #1…..REALLY???? The most overplayed song in history.

    1. selders1 says:

      I was just looking at the 2010 Top 1,001, which you can still find on this website. I wanted to see where “Brown Eyed Girl” placed last year. The big surprise: It didn’t make the list. I went through it a couple of times to make sure I wasn’t missing it. But I didn’t see it. So a record that didn’t rank in the top 1,001 a year ago this year tops the list. Extraordinary.

  9. Mike says:

    Wow no Frankie Avalon and Venus, Thriller at 722, Satisfaction so low and give me a break with Van Morrison at #1 I guess alot of us are passing away. Huge disappointment this year. Though it is good to see all the Margaritaville burn outs are still around. Peace

    1. James B. says:

      You’re right…a big disappointment!

      “Brown Eyed Girl” at #1???

      “Rag Doll” by the 4 Seasons dropping to #29 from #1…lowest position in years.

      Few songs from the early 60’s and almost none from the 50’s.

  10. judah shapiro says:

    Pretzel Logic
    Well..not my choices for top ten, least to some degree sanity has been restored from last year-“Rag Doll” the Number One Best song EVER?! Mr. Spock & Einstein would both be befuddled! Now comfortably ensconced at 29 the logical world can now continue. JS

    1. James B. says:

      “Rag Doll” was definitely a better choice as #1 than “Brown Eyed Girl”…

    2. John J. Jr. says:

      RAG DOLL is a true New York classic by a great group FRANKIE VALLI and THE FOUR SEASONS!

      JERSEY BOYS has been a big hit on Broadway for years; RAG DOLL is the final song that closes the show…

  11. selders1 says:

    The biggest surprise to me was the relatively ordinary showing by the Beatles. They usually dominate these lists, but other than “Hey Jude” at No. 4, you don’t see them again until 166 with “Let It Be.” Wow. ONE Beatles song in the top 150? I wouldn’t have predicted it.

    1. Rita G. says:

      I agree. It was also a big surprise that even though Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons were at #3 with “Sherry”, many of their other hits dropped down quite a bit this year:

      #999 “Big Girls Don’t Cry”; #843 “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”; #665 “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”; #542 “My Eyes Adored You” and #483 “Dawn”!!! The latter four were in the Top 100 last year.

      Also, “Rag Doll” not only dropped out of the #1 spot (where it belonged), but dropped out of the Top 25–first time it’s been that low in years…

    No Frankie Avalon,Bobby Vinton, Bobby Vee, Brenda Lee, Connie Francis,Bobby Rydell and so on and on.Not enough votes from original loyal listeners to get the music we heard as kids to get on the survey. I guess a lot of us are playing our cassettes and CDs and abandoned WCBS-FM because they abandoned playing our music for the advertising dollar to coral younger listeners after JACK RADIO bombed..
    And that includes sticking in a football preseason game during the countdown. I’m no football fan. They could have started the countdown a day later.
    One ’50s Elvis, a handfull of DOO WOP groups. Artists that didn’t make the A To Z countdown, didn’t make this list either.If it’s not requested, no one’s going to hear and oldie but goodie from the ’50s and early ’60s and it will never appear on any holiday play list because it isn’t heard to be voted for.

    1. John J. Jr. says:

      You’re right. The Top 1001 is basically CBS-FM’s playlist with a few additions here and there. CBS-FM has reached out and won a new audience of listeners. I hear CBS-FM when I visit my local bakery, pizzeria, etc., and most of the workers there are in their 20’s. I, too, have been listening to CBS-FM for 30 years and have seen the changes in the music that is played. I was happily surprised last year when “Rag Doll” by the 4 Seasons ended up as the #1 song, but knew that it probably wouldn’t repeat as it wasn’t played that often during the past year on CBS-FM.

      Hey, I shouldn’t complain, CBS is highlighting the Four Seasons in the Hall of Fame today…LOL!

  13. Carolanne says:

    Absolutely wonderful! Brown Eyed Girl number one? With all those great songs? I don’t agree at all.

    1. Oldies Lover says:

      I looked up old New York radio surveys. They’re available on another website.

      “Brown Eyed Girl” only made it to #25 on WMCA. It did not chart at all on WABC!!!

  14. Carolanne says:

    The Beatles, Dylan, The Platters, Four Seasons, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Simon and Garfunkel just to name a few and Brown Eyed Girl number one? Is this the Twilight Zone?

    1. Four Seasons Fan says:

      I agree with you. I thought that Rag Doll by the 4 Seasons was the perfect choice for No. 1 last year. It is a true NY record by a great group from NJ. I can’t believe it dropped to No. 29 this year.

      I’m glad it was played twice today as part of the Jersey Boys Hall of Fame.

      1. carolanne says:

        I will say pretty much anything else would have been a better choice for number one.

  15. P. Lawrence says:

    Two out of the three songs I listed for the Top 1001 made it. Ricky Nelson was a no show.
    It must have been a twenty something who wrote up the list. Dion did not have a hit with “Dream Lover”, it was Bobby Darin. Anyone else catch that?

  16. Bobby Rodriguez says:

    This survey is a sick joke! Brown Eyed Girl Number WHAT? That song couldn’t make a Top 10,000 of real Rock And Roll/DooWop. How about The Mystics, The Jive Five, The Chantels, Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers, Nino And The Ebbtides, The Roomates, The Marcels, The Del Vikings? That is what a real Top 1,000 would show. Ok, I admit Sherry/Four Seasons is a great one but Hey Jude? Easily the worst record The Beatles ever did. How about Tell Me Why/The Beatles?

    Bring Don K Reed and the DooWop Shop back.

    1. Mark says:

      You’re not kidding. I lived in PA since 1995 and they brought back Harvey Holiday’s Street Corner Sunday after we protested. When they dismissed the Doo Wop Shop, I wrote to the Mayor, City Council, CBS all to no avail. And I didn’t even live in Jersey anymore but felt for everyone in the NYC Metro area. If you’re missing the Doo Wop Shop, give Harvey a try on at 9 on Sunday nights. This week there’s a fund raiser for Children’s Hospital so he’s live, though it’s usually taped. I don’t work for CBS or any affiliates so this isn’t a plug for bad behavior on their part, I manage some cemeteries and funeral homes and this music helps keep me sane. Take care and you’ve got great taste in music! Mark from Eastern PA

        WOGL is CBS-FM’s sister station. I check out their website every now and then. I see where last weekend they played all the #1 songs from the 60’s. 70’s. and 80’s alphabetically.

  17. Andy Padaetz says:

    Best list I’ve seen yet, perhaps because my Bee Gees continue to get more and more songs on the survey (13 if you count Andy Gibb’s 2)-and Stayin Alive got all the way to number twenty-five (uh oh, sounding like Broadway Bill there). Maybe next year # 1 for the Brothers Gibb?

    I think also after last year’s list, there was a huge backlash against the prevalence of Beatles and Four Seasons songs in the top 200. Much more balance this year, although methinks Brown Eyed Girl will not stay at #1 next year.

    1. Steve E says:

      Interestingly, “Brown Eyed Girl” didn’t even make the Top 1,001 last year, which is hard to believe.

      1. JJ says:

        I checked last year’s list twice myself. How did “Brown Eyed Girl” go from nowhere to #1? It hasn’t become that popular over the last year. It all seems a bit suspect. I’d love to get the inside story as to how these Top 1001 lists (Top 500 in the past) are really created.

  18. carolanne says:

    No rhyme or reason to it. It depends on who votes I suppose. I just know I could not have been more disappointed when I heard “Brown Eyed Girl” come on as number one. ANY other song would have been better. Also, the doo wop songs were sorely missing because lets face it: The doo wop people are getting sparse. Sad. Great music. Still, Dylan, the Beatles, Four Seasons, all would have been better choices. Maybe Van had a big voting party at his house.

    1. JJ says:

      I’m not to blame. I voted for Rag Doll, 16 Candles, and Rhythm of the Rain…LOL!

      I think that limiting the choices to only three favorites affected the results.

    2. junior2 says:

      Dont blame me either…My votes were for My Eyes Adored You, My Boyfriends Back and Rag Doll!!!

  19. junior2 says:

    There is a website (not radio station) that caters to NY radio listeners. It asks its followers to vote for their favorite songs every year. “Brown Eyed Girl” did not make it on to the last Top 1500 list a few months ago!!! On that list the #1 song was “Rag Doll” followed by “Hey Jude”.

  20. carolanne says:

    I am really glad most of you agree. It’s almost weird that “Brown Eyed Girl” came in first. I guess we all better vote next year!

  21. P.Lawrence says:

    Doo Wop groups ain’t on the list because they killed off Don K. Reeds Doo Wop Shop because maybe they decided it was music for “geezers”, and were losing listeners,( I was a long time listener) and they can get more money advertising to young “whippersnappers”, (some of the ads I hear are aimed directly toward them, and you sure can tell) even though we buy a lot of the goods and services they do. It still should be played because it’s Rock N Roll history, advertisers be damned. If they can play the Beatles on Wednesdays and the rest of the week as well, which I’m sick of, and Motown Mondays and Ticket Thursdays because the Broadway musicals aren’t selling tickets,or groups or single acts aren’t filling theaters, they should turn Turntable Tuesday which sounds a lot like Turntable ’70s and ’80s, to Turntable Roots Of Rock Tuesdays because in the ’50s and ’60s we played our 45s on portable record players. What else was there then?And they should do it all day long, not once every hour.When they do a Roots of Rock Weekend, which is rare now, they should play it all weekend, not just once an hour. Ignoring ’50s music until someone passes away is not right.We heard lots of Elvis’s early music on his death anniversary, but just play his 1970’s songs otherwise. I heard just one Buddy Holly song on his 75th birthday, but if you went to the site the station set up ,you could hear 15 of his hits. Saturday night is Saturday Night Seventies. How about giving us back Friday Night Fifties.
    I’m thinking of abandoning ship and joining the satellite radio crowd. Even though I was not fond of Cousin Brucie, I’ll tune into him and hope for the best.

      Great idea, but I doubt that they’ll be implemented.
