Santa Baby came on in store while I was shopping for family's gifts yesterday, so I now have it affiliated with the spirit of giving, which in a way is what the song is about in the first place.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire … Jack Frost nipping at your nose … and that means it’s time for another holiday-themed Golden Oldies Top 40. I’m Santa Ceejay and I’ll be coming down your chimney with this week’s countdown of the greatest oldies hits on songfacts.com.

Last week, Blowin’ in the Wind by Peter Paul & Mary blew into the #2 spot. Will it blow all the way to #1? Or will Gene Pitney show no pity again with Town Without Pity? We’ll find out later in the countdown.

3 songs drop out this week:

Bony Moronie by Larry Williams gets laid to rest this week after 12 weeks and a #14 peak.

When Will I Be Loved by the Everly Brothers ran all out of love this week, topping at #29 in its 3-week honeymoon.

And Chain Gang by Sam Cooke, which worked its way up to #3 a few weeks ago, finally gets its release after a 17-week sentence.

3 new songs enter the chart this week, all holiday-themed hits:

Eartha Kitt (aka Catwoman) purrs her way into the countdown this week at #37 with her Santa-seducing serenade, Santa Baby.

The Chipmunks, who also appear uncredited on David Seville’s Witch Doctor at #33, get full billing on The Chipmunk Song, bowing at #35.

And guiding Santa’s sleigh tonight as the highest debut in the countdown at #32 is old reliable Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Gene Autry.

Let’s take a peek at #31 through #40:

TW 31 LW 31 (8) DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW 32 NEW RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER GENE AUTRY

TW 33 LW 29 (9) WITCH DOCTOR DAVID SEVILLE

TW 34 LW 37 (13) CRY BABY GARNET MIMMS & ENCHANTERS

TW 35 NEW THE CHIPMUNK SONG THE CHIPMUNKS

TW 36 LW 30 (14) TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY BOBBY VEE

TW 37 NEW SANTA BABY EARTHA KITT

TW 38 LW 33 (15) BO DIDDLEY BO DIDDLEY

TW 39 LW 34 (18) SPANISH HARLEM BEN E.KING

TW 40 LW 39 (16) HITCH HIKE MARVIN GAYE

The biggest mover in the countdown this week is also a holiday classic; up 11 from #36 to #25 is Bing Crosby with White Christmas.

Also rocking its way up the charts is another holiday favorite, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee, up 5 from #26 to #21.

Now let’s see #21 through #30:

TW 21 LW 26 (2) ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE BRENDA LEE

TW 22 LW 22 (6) YOU CAN’T CATCH ME CHUCK BERRY

TW 23 LW 21 (13) STAGGER LEE LLOYD PRICE

TW 24 LW 23 (7) HE’S SO FINE CHIFFONS

TW 25 LW 36 (2) WHITE CHRISTMAS BING CROSBY

TW 26 LW 27 (8) GREENFIELDS BROTHERS FOUR

TW 27 LW 24 (8) RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

TW 28 LW 20 (10) WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

TW 29 LW 25 (11) TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

On we go to this week’s top 20. The highest of 6 holiday songs in our countdown jingles up 8 bells this week from #28 to #20, Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms. One fine notch away from the top 10 this week is One Fine Day by the Chiffons. Now we’ll look at all the songs from #11 to #20:

TW 11 LW 13 (9) ONE FINE DAY CHIFFONS

TW 12 LW 12 (5) TAKE FIVE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET

TW 13 LW 11 (7) KEEP SEARCHIN' DEL SHANNON

TW 19 LW 18 (9) TWO FACES HAVE I LOU CHRISTIE

TW 20 LW 28 (2) JINGLE BELL ROCK BOBBY HELMS

Now, on to the top 10 – and for the 2nd straight week, there are no new songs in the top 10. And 7 of the top 10 have been on the chart for at least 10 or more weeks! Inching up from #9 to #7 is Fingertips (Part II ) by Stevie Wonder. Here are #6 through #10:

TW 6 LW 7 (13) ALL THE WAY FRANK SINATRA

TW 7 LW 9 (6) FINGERTIPS (PART II) STEVIE WONDER

TW 8 LW 6 (13) THE WANDERER DION

TW 9 LW 8 (12) SILHOUETTES RAYS

TW10LW 10 (12) PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON PETER, PAUL&MARY

Peter Paul & Mary got caught in a downdraft and blow down from last week’s #2 peak to #4 with Blowin’ in the Wind:

TW 4 LW 2 (12) BLOWIN' IN THE WIND PETER, PAUL & MARY

TW 5 LW 4 (10) POOR LITTLE FOOL RICKY NELSON

Lesley Gore sends her 3rd straight hit to the top 2, taking another turn with Judy’s Turn to Cry:

TW 2 LW 5 (9) JUDY'S TURN TO CRY LESLEY GORE

TW 3 LW 3 (11) BLUE ON BLUE BOBBY VINTON

And that leaves only our #1, for the 3rd straight week:

:drummer:

TW 1 LW 1 (7) TOWN WITHOUT PITY GENE PITNEY

Well, that’s all for this week’s Golden Oldies top 40. We’ll be back next week to count them down all over again. Until next week, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
