Hello again. DJ Ceejay with you once again for GO-Top 40.Last week, Dion stopped wandering and stayed for a 2nd week at #1. Will he make it 3 or will he be blue?

3 songs drop out this week:

Running Scared by Roy Orbison runs right out of the countdown this week after peaking at #16.

Cry to Me by Solomon Burke sheds its last tear on the chart this week after crying its way up to #1.

And El Paso by Marty Robbins ends its 2nd run more successful than the 1st, spending a week at #11 4 weeks ago.

The 1st of 3 new songs debuts at #40, and it’s the 4th hit by Chuck Berry to grace our countdown, You Can’t Catch Me.

At #36 is a re-entry from Brenda Lee, I’m Sorry. I’m Sorry already surpasses its peak from its brief 1st chart run, when it spent a lone week at #39.

And at #34 is a song recorded by an artist who was only 12 years old, Fingertips (Part II) by Stevie Wonder.

The bottom 10 looks like this:

TW40 NEW YOU CAN’T CATCH ME CHUCK BERRY

TW39 LW33 IT 'S LATE RICKY NELSON

TW38 LW19 KANSAS CITY WILBERT HARRISON

TW37 LW26 TWIST AND SHOUT ISLEY BROTHERS

TW36 R/E I’M SORRY BRENDA LEE

TW35 LW40 COME SOFTLY TO ME FLEETWOODS

TW34 NEW FINGERTIPS (PART II) STEVIE WONDER

TW33 LW30 HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY TUNE WEAVERS

TW32 LW20 SURFER GIRL BEACH BOYS

TW31 LW36 TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

Del Shannon makes a 10-digit leap with his 2nd chart hit, as Keep Searchin’ keeps searching its way toward the top of the chart, moving up from #38 to #28.

The rest of the songs from 30 to 21 are as follows:

TW30 LW29 MONSTER MASH BOBBY PICKETT & CRYPT-KICKERS

TW29 LW34 RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

TW28 LW38 KEEP SEARCHIN' DEL SHANNON

TW27 LW28 DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW26 LW35 GREENFIELDS BROTHERS FOUR

TW25 LW25 WHERE THE BOYS ARE CONNIE FRANCIS

TW24 LW27 ONE FINE DAY CHIFFONS

TW23 LW22 BONY MORONIE LARRY WILLIAMS

TW22 LW24 TWO FACES HAVE I LOU CHRISTIE

TW21 LW21 WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

That gets us to the halfway point. We’ll be back with the Top 20 a little bit later.
