Golden Oldies Top 40 #39

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to GO Top 40. Now that you’ve had time to peruse the bottom 20, let’s get to the Top 20.

Until this week, 2 songs had been tied for the biggest jump in the countdown, each moving up 22 spots: I Walk the Line by Johnny Cash, and Spanish Harlem by Ben E. King. Ironically, in the same week Spanish Harlem drops out of the top 10, they are joined by a 3rd song making a 22-notch move, up from #39 to #17: A Town Without Pity by Gene Pitney.

Here are the rest of the songs from 20 to 11:

TW20 LW18 TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY BOBBY VEE

TW19 LW5 GREEN ONIONS (I) BOOKER T. & MG'S

TW14 LW23 JUDY'S TURN TO CRY LESLEY GORE

TW12 LW15 STAGGER LEE LLOYD PRICE

2 new songs enter the Top 10 this week:

As mentioned last week, Nino Tempo & April Stevens become the 1st duo to reach the Top 10 since the Everly Brothers, as Deep Purple climbs from #16 to #9.

And Ol’ Blue Eyes makes his 1st appearance in the top 10, as All the Way goes all the way into the top 10, up 3 from #11 to #8. These are the songs from #10 to #6:

TW10 LW6 CHAIN GANG SAM COOKE

TW 8 LW 11 ALL THE WAY FRANK SINATRA

TW 7 LW 8 CRY BABY GARNET MIMMS & ENCHANTERS

TW 6 LW10 PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON PETER, PAUL & MARY

Now for the top 5, At #5 is the 1st top 5 hit for the trio, Peter Paul & Mary:

TW 5 LW 7 BLOWIN' IN THE WIND PETER, PAUL & MARY

Holding positions at #4 and #3 respectively are:

TW 4 LW 4 POOR LITTLE FOOL RICKY NELSON

TW 3 LW 3 SILHOUETTES RAYS

Wandering out of the penthouse this week is the former #1 for Dion:

TW 2 LW 1 THE WANDERER DION

Meaning there is a new #1 this week, by the 3rd artist to have 2 #1’s, joining :elvis: and Dion. The 2nd #1 for the Polish Prince is:

Excellent! So great to see Bobby score his 2nd #1 on our chart. Even better to see Ol' Blue Eyes climb into the Top 10. I'd like to see both All The Way and Town Without Pity get to #1 at some point.
