JOHN HOLT TOP 100 SONGS

Right after the death of Winston John Holt on October 20, 2014 @ age 69 (born July 11, 1945) I began getting calls about his vast catalog of songs, about which ones he is most likely to be remembered for. I immediately knew I had to compile the John Holt Top 100 Songs. With help others listed at end of this compilation, here is John Holt Top 100 Songs!
