GOLDEN OLDIES TOP 40s # 1-10

Recommended Posts

Thanks Ron and Ian. :) I really appreciate all who vote. This is OUR Top 40 - not mine. And the more voters we get, the more movement we're going to have in the Chart.

That's him ! Well done Elena. :) In that photo, he's at a separate microphone (which I cut out of the Pic) to the other four.

Tony Williams sang lead on all The Platters' big Hits. :headphones:

Probably the most successful T.V. Western of all time, "Gunsmoke" first hit the screen in 1955. It was most popular from 1957 to 1961. Who remembers their screen names ? I can't think of the guy crouching down. Anyone know ?

Gee Elena, you just "Quizpic-ed" me. Good job ! :D

No wonder he looked familiar. I see Burt Reynolds was in the cast from 1962-1965 ! I don't think it was still being shown in Australia then. Westerns had 'had their day' here. Although 'Bonanza' was still popular here then. But it was more of a 'family' drama which just happened to be in a Western setting.

Thanks for the feedback !!! :thumbsup:

I don't really know that Dion song, "I Was Born To Cry" Elena. :P

Peggy Lee has certainly made a great debut.

New in the Top 40 this week:

Fever - Peggy Lee

Baby It's You - Shirelles

Rhythm Of The Rain - Cascades

You Send Me - Sam Cooke

Sea Of Love - Phil Phillips & The Twilights

El Paso - Marty Robbins

Take Good Care Of My Baby - Bobby Vee

9 Points was the 'benchmark' to make it this week.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight was unlucky to be beaten on a countback for 40th place. Maybe next week !

These dropped out - a couple after only one appearance:

The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant

Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing - Four Aces

(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - Elvis Presley

Big Bad John - Jimmy Dean

Tossin' And Turnin' - Bobby Lewis

I'm Sorry - Brenda Lee

Rumble - Link Wray

And Patsy Cline and the Everly Brothers made big gains, along with others:

All I Have To Do Is Dream - Everly Brothers #9 to #3

Crazy - Patsy Cline #21 to #7

Crying - Roy Orbison #32 to #17

Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley #25 to #19

Travelin' Man - Ricky Nelson #37 to #20

Up On The Roof - Drifters #33 to #21

Surfin' U.S.A. - Beach Boys #35 to #23

Big Girls Don't Cry is still hanging in there. Will it be there next Chart ?

I think we'll see lots of changes next week. Of course, the more voters we have, the more the Chart will potentially change.
