TheREWIND’s 1st LRob’s Favorite 50 Greatest Songs from the 70’s and 80’s EVER

Greetings REWINDNation,

  • This past Sunday I hosted my 1st “Favorite 30 Greatest songs from the 70’s and 80’s EVER show with tremendous response. The original reason for the show was a nod to all the “terrestrial” radio stations that played quote “The Greatest 500 Songs of ALL TIME” un-quote during the July 4th Holiday weekend. Basically it’s the SAME songs played every year in the same order  BLAH BLAH BLAH! Same old,same old! So I wanted to do a stand alone show in which I wanted the listeners to get into my head(I know..scary thought..LOL)and find out which were MY favorite songs EVER. Basically every song in the REWIND music library I love but there are some I love more than others as I’m sure you all do to. So I wanted to put MY list here for the world to see and if you agree or disagree,please send me your feedback,in fact give me YOUR favorite song EVER! Maybe you and I are on the same page. So here’s MY list with a couple of caveats,the songs are NOT in order(yet) and I have the right to revise this list! I hope you enjoy it and maybe you might share the same liking for the same songs too. So here it is….
