Hi Karen...honest, I'm not sitting here waiting for these to appear...!!

#3. 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' - we had Andy Williams crooning it, but everyone's probably more familiar with Frankie Valli's version...

#10. (An all-time fave, natch!) 'Cruisin'' - Smokey Robinson

#20. 'Candle In The Wind' - Elton John
