Classic Hit Oldies and Great Gold Hits
THE MUSIC STREAMED ON GREATGOLD.FM CLASSIC HIT OLDIES can be considered POP ROCK, or, perhaps, ROCK THAT POPS, because it does fit some descriptions of those categories, but it’s not hip-hop, nor rap, like a great deal of what is on the Pop Charts today. GreatGold.fm songs appeared on Top 40 Charts from, mostly, 1955 through the end of the 20th Century (some call it the Greatest Five Decades of Popular Music). The fact that they were on Top 40 Charts during the Rock Era makes them Popular Rock Songs, or, “POP ROCK”, but, it’s not that simple.
POPULAR TOP 40 MUSIC OF THE ERA from which we pull songs, was a mix of different styles that reflected the variety of tastes among audience members at the time. The songs often utilized a catchy style with light, but, sometimes heavy, lyrics, and typically were guitar-based, however, horns, strings and other instruments were sometimes part of arrangements, too.
Our Great Gold Hits/Classic Hit Oldies library ranges from many forms of rock and roll, to popular music, to a few songs that really rock out, to mellow, softer sounds, to entirely something else. You could say, the music of the era, the last half of the 20th Century, was often a variety of styles, tempos, and genres, and, the GreatGold stream reflects that.
THE MUSIC WE PLAY THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND NIGHT is a mix of many different styles, we call Classic Hits: pop, rock, soul, Motown, Blues, and country crossovers (country-pop). Our playlist includes hundreds of singers and bands, playing a variety of styles and songs, and, since there was very little, if any rap, during the era our music comes from, there is no hiphop or rap on our station.
GreatGold artists include, but are not limited to, such recording stars as those made by the Beatles, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Everly Brothers, Rod Stewart, Chicago, Peter Frampton, Jackson 5, Three Dog Night, Diana Ross, Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac, Donna Summer, Billy Joel, Olivia Newton-John, Hall and Oates, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Air Supply, and on and on.
SO, TO SUM IT ALL UP, GREATGOLD.FM CLASSIC HIT OLDIES IS A STREAMED MIX of Classic Hits, Classic Rock, Classic Pop, Classic Rhythm and Blues (Sweet Soul Music), Classic Country Crossover Hits, Classic Soul, Classic Blues, and Classic Motown Sounds, from 1950-2000, and a few gems before and beyond that, plus, an occasional special treasure.
