Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: Pet Shop Boys Like "West End Girls"



Each week I feature 10 groovy tunes that reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart during the last 50+ years. You can vote for your three favorites, and the five with the most votes move on to the following week when five new songs will be added to the list.

Last week ABBA continued their reign at the top with "Dancing Queen", which received 31 votes out of the 172 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Madonna, Ricky Martin and Pet Shop Boys.
