      Lounn, I agree 100% with that assessment of these 70s songs. And even though it is called Disco Lady, Johnnie Taylor's song is very funky and cool to me.

      DJ Funktual, yeah, I have been to 100 Worst Songs of All Time. I thought I commented, but maybe not? I was upset at your #1 choice, but hey, we can agree to disagree. ;-)

      Thanks for the compliment. I really enjoy your music Hubs as well. I don't think that they're too long. Like you, I am trying to think of better ways to organize some of them. These songs Hubs can be time consuming, can't they?

      Oh yeah. To get something like the 450 songs of the 80s finished took about 4 days of research and editing.

      p.s. THE 450 GREATEST SONGS OF THE 90s comes out tonight at 8pm.

      p.s. I got a lot of emails regarding all these HUBs you published today.

      Don't you find it's better to spread them out?

      Ex. If I got just one email I would go visit it right away. But when I get 5 in 5 minutes I just think it's a spammer. YOU ARE NOT A SPAMMER. so FYI! I think spacing them gives people time to miss you, which I'm finding is also important.

      DJ Funktual, wow, 4 days. Maybe they would be better shorter, I don't know. For you, definitely. I have found that my Road Trip Songs is becoming very loonng, and I don't want people to click away just because of that.

      I'm curious about the 450 Greatest Songs of the 90s. I'm not a big 90s music fan, so we'll see.

      Sorry about the emails. Yes, the hubs would definitely be better spread out. Good point. I will keep that in mind.
