As always, the first round of this year’s Great 88 featured some close races. A total of 88 songs that reached the final round last year failed to get enough votes to be in the finals of the 2020 survey. Saturday night on “The Grooveyard”, host Alan Seltzer will share many of the songs that just missed the final round of this year’s Great 88.
Along with the songs that missed, the 2020 survey set many new records. The total number of votes was 57% higher than the record totals of 2019, and eight out of the first nine surveys set individual records. (The only one that fell short only missed by 48 votes.) Of those eight, three surveys beat the previous record high for the most votes in a first round survey.
In addition, the Grooveyard Top 10 will feature the hits of November 28, 1962 and play more of your favorites during the Grooveyard Party hour.
Voting is now open in the final round of our ninth annual Grooveyard Great 88 survey. Pick your 15 favorites in each of the three polls, covering songs that were hits in 1957 and earlier, 1958-1960 and 1961-1963. You can vote daily through December 12th at 10 PM. Results will be announced during a special five-hour edition of “The Grooveyard” on December 26th starting at 7 PM.
