As always, the first round of this year’s Great 88 featured some close races. A total of 78 songs that reached the final round last year failed to get enough votes to be in the finals of the 10th annual 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. Six out of the nine first-round surveys hit new highs, with one more equaling last year’s record. The only two surveys that didn’t reach new records competed against the two top polls all-time. Those records were smashed also, with a new all-time record for first round votes and another poll equalling the previous record.
In addition, the Grooveyard Top 10 will feature the hits of November 20, 1963 and we’ll play more of your favorites during the Grooveyard Party hour.
Voting is now open in the final round of our tenth 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 11th at 10 PM. Results will be announced during a five-hour edition of “The Grooveyard” on a special day, Sunday, December 26th starting at 7 PM.
