Coming back on this subject

As a concept for a possible E3 and E4 release, disc 3 is somehow a missed opportunity but not too far from a viable solution : the reason is that one could combine the remaining Billboard AND Cash box US top 20 hits for E3, leaving more than enough UK Record retailer / NME top 20 hits for an E4 compilation....

E3 : the US top 20 hits

1. I was the one 23 (19 on most played by jockeys)
2. Anyway you want me 27 (20)

8. Tell me why 33 (20 on Cash box)
9. Fame and fortune 17

15. Follow that dream 15
16. One broken heart for sale 11 (10 on Cash box)
17. Kissin' cousins 12 (10 on Cash box)
18. What d'I say 21 (13 on Cash box)
19. Ask me 12 (10 on Cash box)

30. Fool 15 (14)
31. My way 9
32. The twelfth of never 21 (18 ?)

Please let me know if I forgot a hit record.

PS 1 : I know that the Elvis is back LP charted back in 1960 at n°20 too, so if there is a favourite album track (e.g. Fever)

PS 2 : the christmas hits could be put separately as a mini bonus disk too.

hmm, a very good idea, i had this kind myself, but i think they both need a better tracklisting, plus lets compile it with US and UK, not just individually. also, they included thats allright mama and i forgot' on the E2 release, lets put some sun tracks in as well. plus you need to look at these from the publics point of view, songs like 'trying to get to you' and 'lawdy miss clawdy' are not as polished as maybe 'hearbreak hotel' or 'blue suede shoes'. for the E4, have also songs that could be regarded as great songs by the public, but did'nt make the top 20 eg t-r-o-u-b-l-e
