10. I wish that I still had some of the K-Tel albums...

... from the 60's, found among my older siblings' old records years ago.

I wasn't born until the late-60's, the youngest among all of my siblings by far.

They were supposedly full of hit rock songs, but I'd NEVER even heard them until playing the records! Well, I'd maybe recognize a couple of them that were later played on the radio.

Some of the worst rock songs that I'd ever heard! So either they were TRUE one-hit wonders that didn't persist very long at all on radio stations, or K-Tel mislabeled those horrible albums as full of hit songs.

Edit: Maybe they were albums purchased for them by our grandparents or something? "Here's some records full of that rock music that you kids enjoy! Merry Christmas!" Lol.

Edit2: Maybe this was one of their early K-Tel albums? This one was labeled "Vol. 2", and I think it was an earlier version that had an even higher percentage of songs NEVER heard by me on radio stations... starting in the early-70's, for me.
