Prelude to The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*: Whitney Houston's "So Emotional"

The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era* is a fluid ranking.  While very consistent, the exact rankings can sometimes change weekly or even in a day, as new sales and airplay certifications are made.  The special we are presenting was first broadcast in 1979, and has been updated numerous times since.  When the brand new version premieres on May 21 on Inside The Rock Era, it will be a "snapshot" of The Top 500* on that date, and will reflect 60 years of information. 

We will showcase ten great songs each day, wrapping up the special on July 9, which will be 60 years to the day that the Rock Era began (July 9, 1955).  That is the day that the first Rock & Roll song, "Rock Around The Clock" by Bill Haley & the Comets, reached #1 on the Singles chart.

Prior to that gigantic music special, we continue to present some great songs just outside the list.  Enjoy Whitney Houston...
