1 LOVE MACHINE (Part 1) –•– The Miracles

   On March 6 1976 former Raspberries leader Eric Carmen hit #2 with "All By Myself", a power ballad that borrowed a little something from the second movement of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Opus 18. Twenty years later Celine Dion had a big hit with a cover version.

This is what I think I look like every time I finally get around to seeing the barber.

3 DECEMBER, 1963 (Oh, What a Night) –•– The Four Seasons
4 THEME FROM “S.W.A.T.” –•– Rhythm Heritage
