What about some of the foreign language hits? Many hit the charts, and I didn't see anything about them. Sukiyaki, Nel Blu del pinto di blu, the singing Nun, etc. I know my spelling is poor, I apologize.

I have a suggestion, John Williams needs to be added.

There was also a "chord" organ for kids. The Christmas I got mine I remember meekly asking my dad if he could get mom to stop playing it so I could have a turn.
