Danger Zone (Kenny Loggins)
I'm Walkin 2002 Digital Remaster (Fats Donino Jukebox)
Your the one that I want (Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta)
ABC Jackson 5
Get Rhythm (Johnny Cash)
Luck be a lady (Frank Sinatra)
Footloose (Kenny Loggins)
Conga (Gloria Estefan)

The Big Chill Soundtrack, The Big Chill Lyrics >>

This is a funny coincidence, sorta - at our dinner party last weekend, DH's friend got into a friendly competition with some others to guess who was singing what on the iPod we had connected to the computer speakers. DH's friend also likes to quiz people on what album the song appeared on. DH has a *ton* of CDs, mostly Greatest Hits of ... or Best of ... whoever. So that's always his answer "What album was that on?" "The Eagles' Greatest Hits!"

Here's the greatest hits of the '70s: The Top 100 Seventies Singles

One that *must* be on the list, though, is "Joy To The World" by Three Dog Night

No sittin' on the dock of the bay?

Sounds like you need two CD's - one for daytime and one for after dark

look up "Jivebunny" on google. They make AWESOME remixes of oldies and newer music too. They really are cool. DW turned me on to them.

I recommend "Come Go With Me" by the Del-Vikings. It was from the late 50's but a great traveling song.

I find it was was covered by the Beach Boys as well. I prefer the original.
Tell your folks everyone here at DC wishes them a safe and wonderful time!!
