By any definition Roy is an oldies artist, I think that's about all he ever
charted after 1966 or so. It's like "Burning Love" by Elvis...oldies
stations were playing that one 20 years ago since he was a core artist even
though it was a bit new for the format (back then). A little different
situation with Elton John, who's considered more of an AC act these days.
