Number 1'sGreat pop songs are ones you not only remember forever but remind you of the feelings you had when they shot up the charts. On three decade by decade--the '60s through the '80s--Hip-O/UMe Pop Number 1's albums in the new and ongoing UMe Number 1's series, those #1 songs and the feelings they recall are back. Love Songs Number 1's, also released April 3, 2007, brings together the ultimate love songs that topped the charts. All titles will be released in a ground-breaking environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable.

The pop music of the Sixties was unmistakably cheery and so is '60s Pop Number 1's. One cannot imagine happier songs than "My Boyfriend's Back" (The Angels), "Happy Together" (The Turtles), "Windy" (The Association), "The Loco-motion" (Little Eva) or "Lightnin' Strikes" (Lou Christie). Even Barry McGuire's "Eve Of Destruction," Zager & Evans' "In The Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus)," The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," The Mamas And The Papas' "Monday, Monday," Gary Lewis and the Playboys' "This Diamond Ring" and Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" have a bounce to them.

From the anthems "Wild Thing" (The Troggs), "The Letter" (The Box Tops) and "Leader Of The Pack" (The Shangri-Las), and the flower power of "Incense And Peppermints" (Strawberry Alarm Clock), "Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)" (John Fred & His Playboy Band), "Green Tambourine" (The Lemon Pipers) and "Crimson & Clover" (Tommy James & The Shondells) to Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders' "Game Of Love" and Len Barry's "1-2-3," '60s Pop Number 1's is a lovefest.

70s Pop Number 1's is not so innocent, not with Donna Summer's "Bad Girls," Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' "Tears Of A Clown" and Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On." Other than The Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together," Peaches & Herb's "Reunited," Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and Barry White's "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe," love was hard to hold, e.g., "Just My Imagination (Running Away From Me)" (The Temptations), "I Want You Back" (Jackson 5), "Baby Come Back" (Player), "Maggie May" (Rod Stewart) and "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" (Rupert Holmes). Also heard are "Bennie & The Jets" (Elton John), "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves" (Cher), "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" (Bachman-Turner Overdrive), "Will It Go Round In Circles" (Billy Preston), "Still" (Commodores) and "Dancing Queen" from ABBA, a Swedish group that revived the innocent pop of the '60s.

The songs on '80s Pop Number 1's are funkier, rockier and were often tied to visuals. "Endless Love" (Diana Ross & Lionel Richie), "Up Where We Belong" (Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes), "Maniac" (Michael Sembello) and "Miami Vice Theme" (Jan Hammer) were all hooked to movies or TV. Videos boosted "Come On Eileen" (Dexys Midnight Runners), "Addicted To Love" (Robert Palmer) and "I Think We're Alone Now" (Tiffany). On the funk tip were "Funkytown" (Lipps, Inc.), "Celebration" (Kool & The Gang), "Upside Down" (Diana Ross), "All Night Long (All Night)" (Lionel Richie) and "Oh Sheila" (Ready For The World). More pop/rock are "Do That To Me One More Time" (The Captain & Tennille), "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" (Tears For Fears), "On My Own" (Patti LaBelle & Michael McDonald), "Higher Love" (Steve Winwood), "You Keep Me Hanging On" (Kim Wilde) and "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" (Belinda Carlisle).

Romance fills the air with the sounds of Love Songs Number 1's: "Save The Best For Last" (Vanessa Williams)," "Let's Get It On" (Marvin Gaye), "Reunited" (Peaches& Herb) and "Baby Come Back" (Player). All reached #1 Pop, from "Truly" (Lionel Richie), "I'll Make Love To You" (Boyz II Men), "If I Can't Have You" (Yvonne Elliman), "(You're My) Soul & Inspiration" (The Righteous Brothers), "Love Will Keep Us Together" and "Do That To Me One More Time" (Captain & Tennille), "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" (Belinda Carlisle), "Endless Love" (Diana Ross & Lionel Richie) and "Three Times A Lady" (Commodores) to the soft rockers "More Than Words" (Extreme), "(Can't Live Without Your) Love And Affection" (Nelson) and "Can't Help Falling In Love" (UB40).
