Oh well, guess I'll have to open it. :rolleyes:

All members of Songfacts are most welcome to vote and help create next week's Top 40. Don't be shy. It may look a little complicated, but it's not really. You don't have to be an 'oldie' - just someone who appreciates this kind of music.

.................................................

Eligibility of songs:

* U.S. Charted Pop AND R&B Singles of the 1950s+ era, but not after 1963.

* No Album Only Tracks or Uncharted B Sides.

* U.S. Chart Links may be found for on Songfacts' Main Index page, where there are alphabetical links to many songs, either by Title or Artist. If your songs aren't there, you could use Google/Wikipedia - or PT Cyberjudge if in doubt.

..................................................

IT'S EASY Allot your points in 3 sections:

PART A: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #40 (below) you'd like to advance:

(Plus) +5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

PART B: 5 Existing songs in Top 40 #40 (below) you don't really care for, or you think could make way for other New songs.:

(Minus) -5, -4, -3, -2, -1.

PART C: 5 New Songs you'd like to see in the next Top 40:

(Plus) *5, +4, +3, +2, +1.

Hello again everyone and welcome back to this week’s Golden Oldies Top 40 countdown. I’m DJ Ceejay with this week’s biggest oldies hits, here on songfacts.com.

Last week, the Polish Prince Bobby Vinton continued his (not so purple) reign at the top of the chart with Blue on Blue. Will he keep his throne another week? We’ll find out shortly.

2 songs drop out this week:

Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris†Pickett gets mashed this week, after a Halloween-inspired thrill-ride to #28.

And this week is a heartbreaker for Dionne Warwick as Anyone Who Had a Heart gets coded after a 2-week stint topped at #37.

2 songs enter the chart this week; the first is a re-entry of a song that appeared in the very first GO-40 chart.

Singing the Blues by Guy Mitchell was at #5 back in week #1; this week, it re-appears at #40.

And debuting at #39 is the first chart hit for Hank Ballard & the Midnighters, Finger Poppin’ Time. Numbers 31 through 40 look as follows:

TW31 LW28 BONY MORONIE LARRY WILLIAMS

TW32 LW35 TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

TW33 LW26 HITCH HIKE MARVIN GAYE

TW34 LW37 HE’S SO FINE CHIFFONS

TW35 LW29 DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW36 LW30 CHAIN GANG SAM COOKE

TW37 LW33 HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY TUNE WEAVERS

TW38 LW39 EBONY EYES EVERLY BROTHERS

TW 39 NEW FINGER POPPIN TIME HANK BALLARD & THE MIDNIGHTERS TW40 NEW SINGING THE BLUES GUY MITCHELL

(Please note that last week’s rankings reflect a correction of a scoring error for songs #28-30.)

I’m Sorry by Brenda Lee makes the rest of the countdown sorry this week, as it ties for the 2nd biggest jump this week, leaping 9 points from #36 to #27. The rest of the songs from #21 to #30 are:

TW21 LW23YOU CAN’T CATCH ME CHUCK BERRY

TW22 LW16 WITCH DOCTOR DAVID SEVILLE

TW23 LW17 BO DIDDLEY BO DIDDLEY

TW24 LW25 GREENFIELDS BROTHERS FOUR

TW25 LW15 CRY BABY GARNET MIMMS & ENCHANTERS

TW26 LW22TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY BOBBY VEE

TW27 LW36 I’M SORRY BRENDA LEE

TW28 LW31 RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

TW29 LW32 WHEN WILL I BE LOVED EVERLY BROS

TW30 LW24 SPANISH HARLEM BEN E.KING

Also climbing 9 notches this week is Connie Francis with Where the Boys Are. And it’s not make believe; the biggest mover in the countdown this week, up 14 from #34 to #20 is Conway Twitty’s It’s Only Make Believe. Here’s the rest of the songs from #11 to #20:

TW11 LW20 KEEP SEARCHIN' DEL SHANNON

TW12 LW10 MY SPECIAL ANGEL BOBBY HELMS

TW13 LW11 DEEP PURPLE NINO TEMPO & APRIL STEVENS

TW14 LW21 TAKE FIVE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET

TW16 LW18 ONE FINE DAY CHIFFONS

TW17 LW19 STAGGER LEE LLOYD PRICE

TW18 LW27 WHERE THE BOYS ARE CONNIE FRANCIS

TW19 LW20 WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

TW20 LW34 IT’S ONLY MAKE BELIEVE CONWAY TWITTY

Only 1 new song joins the top 10 this week; it’s the 1st top 10 for Little Stevie Wonder, Fingertips (Part II), up 3 from #13 to #10. These are the songs from #6 to #10:

TW 6 LW 6 SILHOUETTES RAYS

TW 8 LW 7 PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON PETER, PAUL&MARY

TW 7 LW 8 ALL THE WAY FRANK SINATRA

TW 9 LW 9 JUDY'S TURN TO CRY LESLEY GORE

TW10 LW13 FINGERTIPS (PART II) STEVIE WONDER

Now for the top 5:

Holding at #5 this week are Peter Paul & Mary with:

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

Also holding at #4 is Dion’s latest hit:

TW 4 LW 4 THE WANDERER DION

Ricky Nelson slips a notch to #3 with:

TW 3 LW 2 POOR LITTLE FOOL RICKY NELSON

And dropping out of the top spot after 3 weeks is:

TW 2 LW 1 BLUE ON BLUE BOBBY VINTON

Showing no pity on the countdown this week, we have a new #1:

:drummer:

TW 1 LW 3 TOWN WITHOUT PITY GENE PITNEY

And there you have it, this week’s Golden Oldies top 40. Log in again next week, when we count them down all over again. Until next week, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
