While I was driving up the Mount Lemmon highway for my hike, listening to the Green Valley AM oldies station, I heard some of these, and the rest were just others I thought of that would get played on that station:
It might not be the most cohesive playlist, but they're all good songs. I couldn't find the original version of Montego Bay by Bobby Bloom, but the reggae version of it by Bobby Benjamin is almost as good. Moody Junior will probably never get played on AM radio these days, but I couldn't leave it out after I included another Junior Walker track.
They were playing Sousa marches too, but I decided that would make the list too schizo.
