Golden Oldies Top 40 #31

Recommended Posts

Yes, there was a big minus vote against Get A Job and Hello Mary Lou this week. The only songs that made any real ground from 'the pack' this week were Bo Diddley and Crying In The Rain.

The Top Ten songs will take a bit of catching, so we probably need to get behind some others soon. This week's 3 new songs all appeal to me.

Yes, there was a big minus vote against Get A Job and Hello Mary Lou this week.

Get a Job and Hello Mary Lou are both great songs, both deservingly hitting the GO-top 10. They've just both been in the chart for a while, so a lot of voters felt it was time to move them down to let other songs in.

It’s September: time for back to school, football, and … oh yes, we’re still counting down the greatest hits of the ‘50’s and early ‘60’s on Golden Oldies Top 40. I’m you r host, DJ Ceejay.

Last week’s top 3 were:

Spanish Harlem by Ben E. King at #3,

Cry to Me by Solomon Burke at #2, and

16 Candles by the Crests at #1.

Will 16 Candles keep burning or flame out? We’ll find out.

3 songs drop out this week:

Just One Look by Doris Troy, which got just one look at the top 10, when it spent 1 week at #10 in week #23,

Unchain My Heart by Ray Charles, which chained itself to the #4 spot, and

Shake Rattle and Roll by Big Joe Turner, which only shook its way as high as #37.

That puts 3 new songs in the countdown this week, 2 of them by chart veterans:

Ricky Nelson, who had a #1 with Travelin’ Man and a top 10 with Hello Mary Lou, returns this week with It’s Late at #36.

Ruby & the Romantics finally get their day on the chart, debuting with their 1st chart hit at #29 with Our Day Will Come.

And the highest new song this week is from Roy Orbison, who previously charted with the #1 Crying, Only the Lonely, and is also in our chart this week with Blue Bayou at #37. His newest hit at #28 is Running Scared.

2 songs this week make huge leaps in our countdown:

Crying in the Rain by the Everly Brothers cries its way up 15 notches from #39 to #24.

And the biggest mover, up 19 positions from #34 to #15 is Bo Diddley by, who else, Bo Diddley.

One new song enters the top 10 this week:

Kansas City inches up from #11 to #9 to score the 1st top 10 for Wilbert Harrison.

And now for this week’s top 3:

16 Candles’ run at #1 is extinguished after only 1 week, dropping to #3.

Cry to Me by Solomon Burke holds at #2.

That brings us to another new #1, by an artist whose previous hit Stand by Me was a “bridesmaidâ€, peaking at #2:

:drummer:

Spanish Harlem by Ben E King
