Recommended Posts

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.

Please note that these may be duplicated on a number of Lists - you can go along with others to support songs you like. It's best to do that if you vote later.

Pop those corks. It’s time for the first Golden Oldies Top 40 countdown of 2010. I’m DJ Ceejay, and I’ll be bringing you the hottest old school hits this week.

Last week was Lesley Gore’s turn to cry tears of joy with her 2nd #1, Judy’s Turn to Cry. Will it be someone else’s turn … or will Judy’s tears just keep on coming? We’ll find out in just a bit.

2 songs drop out this week:

Cry Baby by Garnet Mimms & the Enchanters sheds its final tears after crying its way up to #7.

And this week, we take care of Bobby Vee, who ends a 15-week run with Take Good Care of My Baby, which he took to #18.

2 new songs enter the chart this week; the 1st non-holiday oriented songs to enter the chart in 4 weeks:

Sam Cooke, who had charted with You Send Me and had a #1 with Chain Gang, debuts with his newest hit, Twistin’ the Night Away, at #39.

And the Drifters, who hit with Save the Last Dance for Me, Up on the Roof, and There Goes My Baby, return at #36 with On Broadway. Here are the songs from #31 to #40:

TW 31 LW 31 (10) DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW 32 LW 34 (3) SANTA BABY EARTHA KITT

TW 33 LW 28 (10) GREENFIELDS BROTHERS FOUR

TW 34 LW 37 (2) I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS JIMMY BOYD

TW 35 LW 40 (2) FROSTY THE SNOWMAN GENE AUTRY

TW 36 NEW ON BROADWAY DRIFTERS

TW 37 LW 33 (12) WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

TW 38 LW 38 (2) THE CHRISTMAS SONG NAT KING COLE

TW 39 NEW TWISTIN THE NIGHT AWAY SAM COOKE

TW 40 LW 35 (11) WITCH DOCTOR DAVID SEVILLE

Only 3 songs move up as many as 5 spots this week: Gene Autry’s Frosty the Snowman moved up from #40 to #35, and the Chiffons also move up 5, from #26 to #21 with He’s So Fine.

TW 21 LW 26 (9) HE’S SO FINE CHIFFONS

TW 22 LW 17 (4) WHITE CHRISTMAS BING CROSBY

TW 23 LW 21 (13) DEEP PURPLE NINO TEMPO & APRIL STEVENS

TW 24 LW 23 (8) YOU CAN’T CATCH ME CHUCK BERRY

TW 25 LW 24 (15) STAGGER LEE LLOYD PRICE

TW 26 LW 27 (3) RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER GENE AUTRY

TW 27 LW 25 (3) THE CHIPMUNK SONG THE CHIPMUNKS

TW 28 LW 29 (13) TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

TW 29 LW 32 (12) SINGING THE BLUES GUY MITCHELL

TW 30 LW 30 (10) RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

Sharing the tie for biggest mover this week is Connie Francis, up from #19 to #14 with Where the Boys Are. Dave Brubeck leads this next 10, knocking on the door at #11 with Take Five:

TW 11 LW 13 (7) TAKE FIVE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET

TW 12 LW 10 (14) SILHOUETTES RAYS

TW 13 LW 12 (11) ONE FINE DAY CHIFFONS

TW 14 LW 19 (10) WHERE THE BOYS ARE CONNIE FRANCIS

TW 15 LW 14 (4) ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE BRENDA LEE

TW 16 LW 16 (4) JINGLE BELL ROCK BOBBY HELMS

TW 17 LW 15 (6) IT’S ONLY MAKE BELIEVE CONWAY TWITTY

TW 18 LW 18 (9) KEEP SEARCHIN' DEL SHANNON

TW 19 LW 22 (11) TWO FACES HAVE I LOU CHRISTIE

TW 20 LW 20 (14) MY SPECIAL ANGEL BOBBY HELMS

Only 1 new song enters the top 10 this week, and it’s the first song to do so in 4 weeks! Brenda Lee moves up 2 from #11 to #9 with I’m Sorry. The remaining songs from #2 to #10 look like this:

TW 2 LW 4 (12) POOR LITTLE FOOL RICKY NELSON

TW 3 LW 3 (14) BLOWIN' IN THE WIND PETER, PAUL & MARY

TW 4 LW 2 (13) BLUE ON BLUE BOBBY VINTON

TW 5 LW 5 (9) TOWN WITHOUT PITY GENE PITNEY

TW 6 LW 6 (8) FINGERTIPS (PART II) STEVIE WONDER

TW 7 LW 7 (15) ALL THE WAY FRANK SINATRA

TW 8 LW 8 (15) THE WANDERER DION

TW 9 LW 11 (9) I’M SORRY BRENDA LEE

TW 10 LW 9 (14) PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON PETER, PAUL&MARY

And that means once again, the #1 song is:

:drummer:

TW 1 LW 1 (11) JUDY'S TURN TO CRY LESLEY GORE

That “raps†up another Golden Oldies Top 40. My apologies to anyone who did not get to vote, and of course, everyone on songfacts.com is welcome to vote in next week’s countdown. Until then, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
