That's reasonable though, all things considered, with Travers death. Just like MJ and others. It's ok with me, and seems fitting.

I really like this list. There are only two songs on it this week that I don't really care for. Do that again! :)

Yes, there's a few newies this week. :)

I think Peter, Paul & Mary may be the only artists to have multiple entries in the same week - except for Top 40 #1, of course.

Puff The Magic Dragon

Blowin' In The Wind

If I Had A Hammer

I'm all game here but not sure about a few things (so much for the thousands I've paid for college).

We pick our top/favourite '5' ONLY from that list? And then we select our least favourite '5' ONLY from that list?

For part C, where does that come in? Are we to just randomly name tracks or is there another list?

And last, are we to make headings for each segment? Ooops, and one other thing - are we to do some type of thesis about that current top 40 list?

Other than that, I guess I'm in. lol

We tend to make things tougher than we need to ... :D

Pick 5 you'd like to see move up on the list and 5 you'd like to see move down. Pick another 5 out of your personal favorites (pre '64) that you'd like to hit the chart.

The headings are optional. Some people around here are just terribly clever. Just tell Old fif' which ones you're moving up, which ones down, and which new songs you'd like to see on there. Make sense? Good. Now play. We won't make you do a thesis..... yet. :D

Okay, I follow. The only exception would be part 'C' since I'm late in the game (#33 already) and my probable selections could of already been played.

However, I'm not exactly sure how 'C' plays out. ie, are all the tracks added from #1 to #9 made out for the list in #10, etc?

Yes, I'm quite anal about precision. Go friggin' figure. :D

Hello again. DJ Ceejay back with you again for Golden Oldies Top 40. My thanks to Darryl for ghosting in this spot last week. Coming up, a new GO-40 record set by an artist, 1 of whose members died just over a week ago. And a new #1 by an artist who was shot to death nearly 45 years ago. OK, here we go:

7 songs bid farewell to the chart this week:

The Johnny Otis Show has played its last hand with Willie and the Hand Jive,

which made its best stand at #5.

The Beach Boys’ Surfin’ Safari washes ashore this week after cresting at #22 two weeks ago.

You can shed a tear for Julie London, as Cry Me a River reaches its delta this week, after bubbling up to #22.

And there go the Drifters, who are out of the GO-40 for the first time in 30 weeks! They first appeared in week #3 with Up on the Roof, followed by Save the Last Dance for Me in week #17, and this week, There Goes My Baby ends a 9-week run, landing as high as #22.

The chart also loses Barbara Lynn this week, as You’ll Lose a Good Thing drops out, also ending a 9-week run, after a #17 peak.

The countdown also closes its eyes on Curtis Lee’s Pretty Little Angel Eyes, which caught a wink at #28.

And come what may, Roy Orbison’s Blue Bayou can only dream of coming back someday, as it sinks out after rising to #21.

Now onto the 7 new songs:

The Tennessee Waltz by Patti Page waltzes its way in as the week’s first debut, at #40.

Now, in our GO-40 spotlight, until this week (not counting week #1, when songs were based on Billboard chart positions) only 1 artist had 2 songs enter the chart in the same week. That was :elvis: in week #21, who had a re-entry with Jailhouse Rock at #34 and a new entry with Little Sister at #31, a song that later hit #1.

This week, we have an artist which appears on the chart for the 1st time, and has not 1, not 2, but 3 debuts. On September 16, Mary Travers, a member of the trio Peter, Paul & Mary, passed away. And this week, 3 songs from that trio enter our chart, starting at #39 with a song written by Pete Seeger, If I Had a Hammer.

Bobby Helms makes his first chart appearance a special one, as he enters at #36 with My Special Angel.

Garnet Mimms & the Enchanters enchant our chart at #35 with their debut, Cry Baby.

Blowing in at #33 is the 2nd debut by Peter, Paul & Mary: their version of a song written by Bob Dylan, Blowin’ in the Wind.

And coming up the Cherry Lane at #28 is yet the 3rd song by PP & M to enter the countdown this week, a song co-written by group member Peter Yarrow, Puff the Magic Dragon.

And the highest debut this week casts its shadow at #23, Silhouettes by the Rays.

Only 1 song makes a double digit climb up the charts this week:

Staggering up from #29 to #19 is Stagger Lee by Lloyd Price.

Only 1 song enters the top 10 this week as well:

Thumbing his way into the top 10 is Motown legend Marvin Gaye, with his 1st top 10, Hitch Hike.

Now we’re up to the top 4 … and for the 1st time on our chart all of the top 4 songs have hit #1:

Slipping a notch from #3 to #4 is 16 Candles by the Crests.

Falling out of the #1 spot to #3 is Cry to Me by Solomon Burke.

Holding steady at #2 is Ben E. King with Spanish Harlem.

And the new #1 song is by an artist who was shot and killed by the manager of a Los Angeles motel back in 1964:

:drummer:

Chain Gang by Sam Cooke

And there you have it: this week’s Golden Oldies Top 40. Log in again next week when we’ll count down a brand new chart. Until next time, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:

Hi Pete ! That will be great if you join us. :thumbsup: You've already seen how friendly people are here, and I think you'll enjoy yourself.

You can check which songs have already been in at this link -

Every Song That's Made The Golden Oldies Top 40.

With the songs in the current Top 40 the accumulated points are carried forward each week, and rise or fall by our votes in A and B.

Part C is a whole different ballgame. The points for nominations of 'New' songs start from scratch each week. A song usually needs around 15 points to enter the Chart.

Cheers Mate. :)
