Erick Bne2 ::)2,22.yrd


I can answer all questions related to hit songs and pop artists of the rock and roll era. My specialty is U.S. Billboard Top 40 chart history and one hit wonders from 1950's through the 90's. I can also research lyrics to songs. I am more knowledgeable in the area of pop and rock songs, but I am willing to research soul and country songs. I cannot answer questions relating to classical, jazz, or rap songs. Also, I'm not an expert on music videos.

Experience in the area

I am an avid reader of Joel Whitburn Top 40 books and a collector of all pop and rock hit songs.


My educational credentials include a college degree in history and over twenty-five years of life experience as a fan of popular music.

Hi Marty,    I think you may have misheard the lyrics to "I'm A Man" written by Bo Diddley and made popular by The Yardbirds in 1965.  I think what you're hearing as "I smell ham" is the part of the song
