1987 top 100 songs

Hi Is it possible to make a DVD and CD of these songs and performers? How would one do that?

Please reply asap as I would like to do so tomorrow for Saturday. Thanks Eve

Firstly we don't distribute music from this site, secondly we don't get paid enough to do it that quickly

Spelling of title # 98

The correct spelling is "Küss die Hand schöne Frau" If you don't have an "Ü" or an "Ö" you can write alternatively "Kuess die Hand schoene Frau"

Greetings

Al

We have made the fix you suggested, thanks for the correction.

As you hinted we unfortunately can't have characters with accents in the names of artists, songs or albums. Not only is it a challenge to correctly handle accented characters but, more importantly, our sources all take different approaches to them (depending, we suspect, on the native languages of the implementers and the tools they use), so when we consolidate entries we have to take a well defined position. We've decided that the best way to be consistent is to avoid all non-ASCII characters.

We realise that this is a bad approach, however it is at least consistent.

If you find any other places where our woeful ignorance of German (or any other language) has resulted in some bad names we would be glad to receive any suggested fixes.
