Golden Oldies Top 40 #34

Recommended Posts

Hello again. I’m DJ Ceejay, here to ring in October with the harvest moon edition of Golden Oldies Top 40. Last week, Sam Cooke worked his way to #1 with Chain Gang. Will it stay chained to the top spot again? Stay right where you are.

4 songs drop out this week:

Chuck Berry’s Back in the U.S.A. backs out of the countdown, after hitting #32.

Dion’s Runaround Sue finally gets the runaround, falling out after a run that went all the way to #1.

Surf City washes ashore this week after cresting at #25.

And the hammer falls on Peter Paul & Mary’s If I Had a Hammer, which lasted only 1 week on the chart, at #39. The trio still have 2 songs in the countdown that we’ll hear from a little later.

4 new songs enter the chart this week:

Deep Purple by Nino Tempo & April Stevens decorates our chart at #38.

Nat King Cole begins his reign in the countdown, debuting at #37 with Too Young.

Ricky Nelson enriches our chart with his latest hit, Poor Little Fool, which enters at #34, joining It’s Late, which slides up a spot to #24.

And continuing our color theme, Bobby Vinton returns to the chart this week with Blue on Blue, the highest debut of the week at #31. The Polish Prince previously topped the chart with Blue Velvet.

Only 1 song makes a double-digit climb this week:

Cry Baby by Garnet Mimms & the Enchanters casts its spell on the chart, with a magic 13-spot gain from #35 to #22.

Other notable gainers are:

Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Paul & Mary, up 9 from #28 to #19

Blowin’ in the Wind by Peter Paul & Mary, up 7 from #33 to #26

Silhouettes by the Rays, up 7 from #23 to #16, and

Stagger Lee by Lloyd Price, also up 7 from #19 to #12.

Only 1 new song enters the top 10 this week:

The Wanderer by Dion wanders up 6 places from #15 to #9, becoming the 2nd top 10 for Dion. His 1st top 10, Runaround Sue went to #1.

That brings us to the top 3:

Green Onions by Booker T & the MG’s is no longer green, as it becomes the 1st instrumental in the top 3, moving up from #5 to #3.

Spanish Harlem by Ben E King holds at #2 for the 3rd straight week.

And the 1st song to repeat at #1 since Then He Kissed Me by the Crystals, 5 weeks ago:

:drummer:

Chain Gang by Sam Cooke.

That’s all for this week’s “rapâ€. Until next week, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
