Pretty difficult!

 

For me, I'd stick with Safe (in the absence of any other info!), and go for tracks that sum up each decade.

Checking a few sites for "best selling artists" may help (which is what I briefly did below)

 

For 70's;

Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Wings, Bee Gees, Earth Wind & Fire

 

For 80's;

Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Wham, Dexy's Midnight Runners

 

For 90's;

Aqua, Britney Spears, Take That

 

For 00's;

The Black Eyed Peas, Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga

 

 

ie - try to ensure there is a clearly different sound for each decade.

If the client has given any tips re: music preferences, this may help, but be careful not to pick tunes that muddy the idea of each decade.

So if you go Whitney, don't play "how will I know" (80's), then "always love you" (90's)

 

Now - if their tastes are a bit non-poppy, then lots of chance to go with some edgy tracks, rather than stick with Wham for 80's :-)

for the 70s i have chosen:

 

the rubettes-sugar baby love

abba -waterloo

bee gees-night fever

barry white- the first,last everything

blondie-sunday girl

 

any thoughts?

 

and for the 80s.....

 

katrina and the waves-walking on sunshine

duran duran-the reflex or girls on film (cant make my mind up)

huey lewis and the news-the power of love

erasure-a little respect

rick astley-never gonna give you up

not sure some of them are worth having lol

 

But your welcome.

 

Nik

 

Yeah there are some "questionable" tracks on there, but someone must have liked them at the time!

 

 

Some of the 70s I didnt think were quite as popular as they are on that list... I'm sure I've probably got all of 1980's onwards, and most of the 70s anyway...

 

 

 

On another note, are there top 100 hits (or similar) for specific genres I wonder...
