Ok you guys I'm a Broadcast Journalism major in college and I would like you guys to try and help me..

My professor told us before the semester was up that we would produce and record ONE radio show based on our favorite musical performer...
of course I am doing Garth

Well , I decided it would be cool to make it a countdown show based on how Garth Fans rank the music

so here is what I am asking you to do:

compile a list of 15 of your favorite Garth songs(any song garth has recorded, album cuts or singles, does not matter)

PLEASE number your list...

songs placed in positions 1 to 3, recieve 5 points
positions 4 to 6 , four points
7 to 9, three points
10 to 12 , two points
13 to 15, one point

again you can put any song garth has recorded on your list, it does not matter if it was a single or not...this is YOUR list..
do not let other people influence your list either..lol..(had to throw that in ...haha)
thanks for helping

and ill try and let you guys know how the voting turned out..

thanks in advance:)

This is cool, seeing all the different songs on the list, and the ones that are picked over and over again.

Maybe we could burn a copy of the top 15, and send it to Garth and tell him something like,
"Garth, here's the top 15 reasons why we, the fans, love you."


06-14-2001, 09:41 PM
that's a genius idea!!! are you serous about it?? would you do it?? :)

Vanessa :)

06-15-2001, 01:27 AM
wow you guys ,

this is going great

06-15-2001, 07:53 PM

What have you been doing lately?

I haven't seen you on the forum for a long time :eek:

Are you busy with work???

*LOL* I am not too sure about burning songs and give them to Garth. He has a pet peeves of burned CDs...LOL


06-15-2001, 11:23 PM
It is so interesting to see how everyone's list is so very different! Very cool...

Here goes.
The River
The Dance
To Make You Feel My Love
Victim Of The Game
That's The Way I Remember It

Good Luck, Charles!


06-15-2001, 11:30 PM
LOL Tommy...thanks for sharing!! :)

Vanessa :)

06-16-2001, 09:21 AM
Yeah, I've been a hard working man lately, Tommy:) At work, and my GB collection, too!

As far as cdr's, I think Garth wouldn't mind it, if was from the 'fans' taking from albums bought to help him to 100,000,000. I think he would love it!

And I'd be happy to do it to;) Just let me know the final 15! With inserts and all!


06-16-2001, 02:09 PM
Tommy, said that Garth doesn't like songs of his to be burned..is that true?? :eek: :o :confused: :)


Thanks for offering to do this..I'm garth'll love it!! :)

Vanessa :)

06-16-2001, 07:52 PM
:o Believe it or not, I do have a cd burner, but out of all my favorite artist, he is the one I haven't made a'collection' cd of yet...

If we do send a copy to Garth, I think we need a letter of thanks and some art work and a name for the cd:eek:

Tommy, it seems the only reason I work is to buy Garth stuff. So you can count on me to keep working. GB has sooo many cds out there!


06-16-2001, 07:58 PM
Thanks for sharing Tommy, I understand now. :)


what songs would you use on the cd?? if and when we made one for Garth?? :)

Vanessa :)

06-16-2001, 09:13 PM

Tommy, it seems the only reason I work is to buy Garth stuff. So you can count on me to keep working. GB has sooo many cds out there!

:eek: Dawyne, come on you must have something else to buy than Garth's CDs :) I know at least that he doesn't have new CDs out there for us to purchase :eek:

But you'd better save some up for his upcoming CD :p

Are you still working in the same place???


06-16-2001, 11:35 PM
OK, Charles, this is not easy:

1. The Dance
2. When You Come Back to Me Again
3. That Summer

4. Shameless
5. Somewhere Other Than the Night
6. Beaches of Cheyenne

7. Rodeo
8. Learning to Live Again

Charles, if you would just let me have a few more, I would add The River, Friends in Low Places, Hard Luck Woman, Every Now and Then, Main Street and several Christmas songs. Oh well.....

:) Elaine

06-17-2001, 10:33 AM
Tommy, I am working at the same place. We are getting ready to remodel the whole store. So I got alot of long days ahead of me:( As for the cds, I still have alot of promo cds and import cd singles I need:p

Vanessa, I would like to use the songs Charles comes up with...But I want EVERYONE to vote. And if we do this, it would be great if Brandon lets us use the PG name/logo.
To GB from PG :p

Lets get everyone to vote!


06-17-2001, 11:23 AM
This CD for Garth of the top 15 songs sounds a great idea, im really interested to see what the final 15 will be. Whatever they are it'll be cool, because they are all Garths :)

Let me know if you need any help.
And I think including a thank you letter would be really nice. It would be cool if you could get all the PGers to sign it before it gets sent to Garth, I think he'd like that. What do ya think? If so how would we do it?


06-17-2001, 12:28 PM
Thanks for replying dwayne!! :) You have some good points there, thanks for sharing! :)


That's a good point..how would we get all the PGer's to sing it?? This'll be interesting to figure out..:eek: :rolleyes: :)

Vanessa :)

06-17-2001, 05:31 PM
15 songs sounds like a lot, but it really isn't! VERY hard to make up my mind on the 15 songs below. And as for the order, I really thought hard about the first 5 and then just numbered them ransomly. It is too difficult! :)

1. Shameless
2. Burning Bridges
3. When You Come Back To Me Again
4. Lost In You
5. Every Now And Then
6. Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)
7. The Thunder Rolls
8. Callin' Baton Rouge
9. If Tomorrow Never Comes
10. Unanswered Prayers
11. Belleau Wood
12. When There's No One Around
13. Ireland
14. Friends In Low Places
15. Ain't Going Down (Till The Sun Comes Up)


Good Luck!

06-18-2001, 06:26 PM
I don't know if 15 is a lot...I think THE HITS was too short:D

I don't think we should put the name of the songs on the cd. Make Garth listen to find out what fans voted #1! :p


06-18-2001, 06:34 PM
