Recommended Posts

Excellent Lars. Very Innovative.

You've obviously put a lot of work into it, and we certainly appreciate it.

Thank You. :headphones:

Would you be able to put a link to the Top 40 PDF next week, site permitting ? That could bring some new people to Songfacts, especially to this Thread. ;)

I'm glad. :) I knew you'd be disappointed that Moon River dropped out !

I am, but I guess the other posters here who participate each week don't hold the song in as high a regard as I do. That's fine, though. There are a couple other classic instrumentals I'd like to see make the charts anyway.

There were no New songs in the Ten this week. In fact the Top Ten have a fairly substantial points' lead over the rest !

I like to support songs that are on the way up, rather than vote for songs that have already peaked. So I'll probably vote up just one song in the Ten and some others that are climbing up, like Running Scared and The Wanderer.

P.S. CeeJay's Rap is coming up, written by a Guest Ghostwriter.

Welcome All ! We’re still counting down the greatest hits of the ‘50’s and early ‘60’s on Golden Oldies Top 40. I’m your host, DJ Ceejay.

Last week’s top 3 were:

16 Candles by the Crests at #3

Cry to Me by Solomon Burke at #2, and

Spanish Harlem by Ben E. King at #1.

Will the rose in Spanish Harlem keep blooming or fade away? We’ll find out.

4 songs drop out this week:

Great Balls Of Fire by Jerry Lee Lewis, which blazed as high as #6 crashes and burns.

Save The Last Dance For Me by The Drifters, which only waltzed to the #14 spot, leaves the dance floor.

Hello Mary Lou by Ricky Nelson, which greeted the Top Ten once at #9, says Goodbye.

Moon River by Henry Mancini, which only rose to #31, gets the big Moon from some voters.

Get A Job by The Silhouettes worked it's way to #5, but is now unemployed.

That puts 5 new songs in the countdown this week, 4 by Artists making their debut.

Ol' Blue Eyes finally makes it with one of his Classics, All The Way at #37.

The Isley Brothers' Twist And Shout shakes it's way in at #31.

Lloyd Price makes a long overdue entry into the Chart with Stagger Lee at #29, his million selling rework of the old traditional 'Stack - O - Lee'.

One of the Beatles' favorite artists, Larry Williams enters at #26 with Bony Moronie.

And the highest new song this week is from Dion, who previously hit #1 with Runaround Sue (still in our chart at #28). His newest hit at #22 is The Wanderer.

Double figure movers upward in our countdown this week are :

El Paso, Marty Robbins - #27 to #16

Running Scared, Roy Orbison - #28 to #17

It's Late, Ricky Nelson - #36 to #23

NO new songs entered the top 10 this week !!!

#10 Stay - Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs

#9 Then He Kissed Me - The Crystals

#8 Kansas City - Wilbert Harrison

#7 Surfer Girl - Beach Boys

#6 Green onions - Booker T. & The MG'S

#5 At Last - Etta James

#4 Chain Gang - Sam Cooke

And now for this week’s top 3:

16 Candles by The Crests still burns brightly at #3.

Spanish Harlem by Ben E King wilts a little to #2.

That brings us to another new #1 :drummer: :drummer: :drummer:

CRY TO ME by SOLOMON BURKE.

It's kind of a tribute to the late Patrick Swayze, because this song featured in the momentous love scene between he and Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing.

Thank you once again for joining me for Golden Oldies top 40. This is DJ Ceejay signing out. Until next time, keep your head in the stars and keep reaching for the ground.

There she was just a-walkin' down the street, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
