You mean like early rock and roll jukebox stuff? Or Motown? Or early psych? Or rock classics that get played on oldies stations (Beatles, Stones, Zombies)?

Well, the topic said favorite, not best. There's arguments for both, I suppose. I have a connection with Spooky, though. So, yeah, don't be steppin' homes.

That's because those stations cater to people who have been listening to the same songs over and over for the past forty-five years.

So I found out another one I love today.
It's another one by Frankie Valli! I freaking love him and need to get his greatest hits. It's called "Can't take my eyes off of you".
None of you guys mentioned it. Shame, shame, shame.

this thread is both moronic and patronising

Ooh. I like that one. Especially the part when they break into a three-part harmony at "moronic." And the theremin solo, while somewhat jarring in the context of a barber shop quartet serenade, really highlights the wobbly sense of anguish that the narrator is feeling toward his intellectually-challenged, condescending spool of thread. An anthem for tailors with sentient work materials everywhere.
