Thanks for voting Lee. :)

To get support for your 'new' nominations, you need to vote early, I think.

Then people have a chance to support your nominations (if they like them).

Maybe you and Cyber can 'get together' next week. :)

At this stage, there may be only 3 New entries in this week's Top 40.

Some songs are clinging on by a whisker.

Unfortunately, points only 'carry forward' each week for those songs already in the Top 40. Those songs that don't make it (and there'll be some unlucky ones this time) start again from scratch next week.

Thank you, dear Lucky. And I just added a 'jukebox' for you. :)

Not many newies. Be My Baby and Love Is Strange were very unlucky not to make it. Some of those older songs hung in by one point. We'll have to clean some out next week.

And did Big Girls Don't Cry do a 'Lazarus' and hang in there ?

Please have a look and find out !

ALL feedback is welcome, as are any questions about how the Chart is calculated, anything else you'd like to know. I'll do a full Chart wrapup tomorrow (Oz time).

Goodnight All. :headphones:

CHART COMMENTS, GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40 #5.

XXX A Turkey for RUNAWAY. Three weeks in a row at #1. !!!

And Rock Around The Clock is still going strong at #2.

These two songs have a lot of accumulated points, but Stand By Me, All I Have To Do Is Dream, and Crazy are all closing in on them.

Biggest gains this week....

Stand By Me - Ben E.King (9th to 3rd)

Crying - Roy Orbison (17th to 10th)

Travelin' Man - Ricky Nelson (20th to 12th)

Up On The Roof - Drifters (21st to 13th)

Baby It's You - Shirelles (30th to 20th)

Take Good Care Of My Baby - Bobby Vee (40th to 23rd)

You Send Me - Sam Cooke (33rd to 27th)

Quarter To Three - Gary U.S. Bonds (37th to 30th)

New to the Chart...

The Lion Sleeps Tonight - Tokens (debuted at #24)

Only The Lonely - Roy Orbison

Georgia On My Mind - Ray Charles

The 'benchmark' to make the 40 was a high 12 points this week.

As mentioned Be My Baby and Love Is Strange were most unlucky not to make it with 11 points each. Big Girls Don't Cry amazingly held on for yet another week. Its highest position in the 5 weeks it's been there is #35.

Out of the Chart this week...

The Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith

Sincerely - McGuire Sisters

Tequila - Champs

................................................

I hope we have lots of voters next week. Maybe we can get Be My Baby, edna, and some other good new songs into the GO Top 40.
