Thanks Kenne, Lucky, Don and Ian. :)

I like Deep Purple, but I was trying to get some other songs up near the Top Ten, which had gotten away from the rest on points.

Voting is now closed ! Back with the Chart as soon as I can.

Don't hold your breath. I'm slow in the mornings. :P

Gee, it would be nice to get some feedback.

Just a line or two - not essays.

You know, not all of us are on this website all the time. My baseball team had a game, I needed to take a shower....just because you didn't get feedback immediately doesn't mean it's not coming. :)

Hello again and welcome to DJ Ceejay’s birthday edition of Golden Oldies Top 40. Let’s get right to it:

3 songs drop out:

The Fat Man loses his thrill with Blueberry Hill this week, which just missed the top 10, reaching its summit at #11.

Shed a tear for the Everly Brothers, as Crying in the Rain drops out, after reaching #24.

And the Tennessee Waltz by Pattti Page waltzes out of the chart this week, after dancing for 2 weeks in the #40 spot.

3 new songs join the chart:

And to kick it off, a song ironically timed perfectly to debut on my birthday:

At #40, Happy Happy Birthday Baby by the Tune Weavers.

At #35, the 4 Seasons return to the chart with their 4th chart entry, as Walk Like a Man walks in the footsteps of Big Girls Don’t Cry, Sherry and Candy Girl.

And the highest entry this week is a chart returnee, at #28, Bobby Vee reenters with Take Good Care of My Baby. It peaked at #22 its 1st go around. Will it get higher the 2nd time? We’ll have to just wait and see.

2 songs make double digit moves this week:

Ricky Nelson isn’t fooling around on the charts. He’s already reached the top 10 with 2 hits and this week, Poor Little Fool moves up 11 from #34 to #23. Ricky is also in the chart with It’s Late, which slips from #24 to #31.

And the biggest mover is from another chart veteran, Bobby Vinton, who had a #1 with Blue Velvet. This week another color-themed song from the Polish Prince rises 14 shades, from #31 to #17, Blue on Blue. … Can Roses Are Red be far behind???

Only 1 new song shines its way into the top 10 this week:

It’s the Rays, moving from #16 to #10 with Silhouettes.

Sniffing the top 10 from a cave just below is Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Paul & Mary, up 8 from #19 to #11.

Now to the top 4:

Wandering its way into the top 4, up 5 from #9, is Dion, with the Wanderer.

Down a notch from #3 to #2 is Spanish Harlem, by Ben E King.

Knocking on the door at #2, up from #3 is Green Onions, by Booker T & the MG’s.

And the #1 song on Golden Oldies Top 40 again this week is:

:drummer:

Chain Gang by Sam Cooke.

That “raps†up another episode of Golden Oldies Top 40. I’m DJ Ceejay, signing off, another year older (but none the wiser :jester: ). Until next time, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
