Yes, I know I'm late with this, but I was busy romancin' my sweetie on Valentine's Day!  Then, work on Monday took it's toll....
Needless to say, continuing to look back at Billboard's charts, there's been a definite change in music over the years.  I guess I'm a hopeless romantic, since I like the 1940s through the early 1960s...and like old movies, as well....
