Thanks Don. :)

If I hadn't already voted, I'd have given Sixteen Candles 5 Points. Next week ?

Now, there's currently a few songs just teetering on leaving the Chart, so if we want to get New ones in, maybe think about supporting others' nominations we like.

OVER 12,000 VIEWS OF THE TOP 40 THREADS TO DATE !!!

FYI. Billboard actually had 3 charts at the time: Best Sellers in Stores, Most Played by Jockeys, and Top 100; the Hot 100 as we know it was not introduced until August 4, 1958, with Poor Little Fool as #1.

Thanks Cyber. I thought that might confuse people.

The Billboard Chart I used above is from the "Top 100 Sides".

With Billboard Magazine, an Artist/Group could be credited with a #1 from any of those 3 Charts at that time. After the introduction of the official Hot 100, the Most Played By Jockeys and Best Selling Pop Singles In Stores Charts were phased out.

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

COULD I ASK THOSE WHO HAVEN'T VOTED YET TO PLEASE DO SO SOON ?

MAYBE WHEN YOU COME IN TO VOTE FOR THE TOP TEN; OR SOONER.

THANKS. :)

My lack of any typing skills means I need plenty of time to prepare the Chart.
