Top 40

Hear the TOP 40 songs selected by classmates during our 40th Reunion!

Do you hear that music? That’s the Class of 74’s Top Tunes Committee spinning up memorable music hits from the early 70’s. Make no mistake…our unofficial bandbox of a committee has eagerly gone about the task of tracking down and queuing up the great music of our undergraduate years, in anticipation of a music-filled 40th Reunion in June.

Deep into our committee work, we recognized our personal tastes didn’t reflect the wide range of musical tastes in our Notable Class. So we put aside our personal favorites (the Allman Brothers Band, everything from Motown, and Grateful Dead long versions) and came up with a new approach: We invited EVERY Classmate to submit your personal Top 5, 10 or 40 favorite songs from our undergrad days. We then compiled our first official Class-wide Top 40 for 40 playlist to enjoy at our 40th reunion and after.

Lucky for us, we met web-musicologist Bob Borst. Bob’s an Ithaca resident who’s graciously worked with us to launch a unique Class of 74 website that makes selecting your favorite 70’s songs simple and fun.

Happy listening!

Your Cornell 74 Top Tunes Committee,
