All members of Songfacts are most welcome to vote and help create next week's Top 40. Don't be shy. It may look a little complicated, but it's not really. You don't have to be an 'oldie' - just someone who appreciates this kind of music.

* No Album Only Tracks or Uncharted B Sides.

* U.S. Chart Links may be found for on Songfacts' Main Index page, where there are alphabetical links to many songs, either by Title or Artist. If your songs aren't there, you could use Google/Wikipedia - or PT me if in doubt.

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

IT'S EASY !!! Allot your points in 3 sections:

PART A: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #18 (below) you'd like to advance:

(Plus) +5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

(Plus) *5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

Trivia Question:

This female artist was given a chance to record "A Groovy Kind of Love", but her producer refused to let her record a song with the word "groovy" in it... :cool:

A couple of wild guesses from both sides of the Atlantic... :)

Co-writer Carole Bayer Sager (U.S.) was married to Burt Bacharach in the 80s, so they probably knew each other in 1965. Maybe it was offered to Dionne Warwick ?

OR

Petula Clark covered it in the U.K. after The Mindbenders did. I think they may have shared the same Producer. Maybe she was offered it before them ?

:confused:

OOops... I PT'd Bazooka to let him know, in case he needs to change his votes...

bazooka continues to beat dead horses.

I see ... 'SEALED WITH A KISS - BRIAN HYLAND' already got the boot. Allow me to make this one revision:

-1 ROCK-IN ROBIN - BOBBY DAY

[smaller]The rest of my rankings are in accord with my current caprices.[/smaller]

TRIVIA QUESTION

WHO AM I ???

I was a well known Musician, Born 1937, Died 2002. But I could have had a much shorter lifespan if I hadn't "lost" the draw for (or some people say I gave it up)

the last remaining seat on an ill fated plane, which crashed over 50 years ago.

Have a go without Googling.

You're a good hearted woman to give someone else a chance Laurie. :)

Not taking that seat lengthened his life by 43 years and 10 days. That would have been spooky if he'd died on the same day 43 years later.

Waylon Jennings. I remember watching the Behind The Music special on that plane crash and apparently Buddy Holly said to him "Well I hope your bus crashes/freezes up" and he said to him "Well, I hope your old plane crashes" and how he was really affected by that for years afterward.

Waylon it sure was Pink. He either lost the toss of the coin, or gave up his seat (don't know which story's correct) to J.P.Richardson a.k.a. The Big Bopper.

ANOTHER TRIVIA QUESTION

On which #1 Pop Record did The Big Bopper and country star George Jones do 'background Indian noises'. ???
