Golden Oldies Top 40 #47

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.

VOTING IS NOW OPEN !

P.S. I will keep the thread open until next week's regular TT closes, to make sure everyone who wants has a chance to vote ... but voting early helps in tabulating the votes.

P.P.S. Please consider the # of weeks a song has been on the chart in making your votes. There are a lot of songs that have been on the chart a long time (7 of the top 10 have been in for 11+ weeks and will receive penalties) and it is very hard to get new songs on the chart and to move new songs up if people are still voting up songs that have been around forever.

Oh hey Ron, that's nice, some good ideas there (easier than looking them up myself ;) ). I've been meaning to nominate My Boy Lollipop. That list just reminded me. :)

You're right. That station plays a good mix from the 50's, 60's and 70's...those old AM hits mainly. My Boy Lollipop is a good one.

Hello again and welcome to Golden Oldies Top 40. Once again, we’ll be counting down the hottest hits from 1950 to 1963 as voted by our panel at songfacts.com. I’m DJ Ceejay and here we go:

Last week, it was Lesley Gore’s turn at #1 with Judy’s Turn to Cry. Who’s turn will it be this week. We’ll find out soon.

2 songs drop out of our countdown this week:

The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole stores its roasted chestnuts away until next holiday season.

And Witch Doctor by David Seville also casts its disappearing spell.

2 new songs appear on the chart this week:

Nat King Cole replaces himself on the chart as Unforgettable debuts at #40, joining 2 other Cole entries, Ramblin’ Rose at #31 and Too Young at #27.

And Bobby Darin re-enters the chart at #36 with Mack the Knife, which peaked at #5 back in week #2. Let’s look at #31 to #40:

TW 31 LW 30 (11) RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

TW 32 LW 27 (4) THE CHIPMUNK SONG THE CHIPMUNKS

TW 33 LW 32 (4) SANTA BABY EARTHA KITT

TW 34 LW 31 (11) DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW 35 LW 33 (11) GREENFIELDS BROTHERS FOUR

TW 36 R/E (9) MACK THE KNIFE BOBBY DARIN

TW 37 LW 34 (3) I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS JIMMY BOYD

TW 38 LW 35 (3) FROSTY THE SNOWMAN GENE AUTRY

TW 39 LW 37 (13) WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

TW 40 NEW UNFORGETTABLE NAT KING COLE

The biggest climber in the countdown this week twists its way up 16 notches this week- in its 2nd week, Sam Cooke’s Twistin’ the Night Away jumps from #39 to #23. Here are #21 through #30:

TW 21 LW 16 (5) JINGLE BELL ROCK BOBBY HELMS

TW 22 LW 15 (5) ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE BRENDA LEE

TW 23 LW 39 (2) TWISTIN THE NIGHT AWAY SAM COOKE

TW 24 LW 20 (15) MY SPECIAL ANGEL BOBBY HELMS

TW 25 LW 23 (14) DEEP PURPLE NINO TEMPO & APRIL STEVENS

TW 26 LW 29 (13) SINGING THE BLUES GUY MITCHELL

TW 27 LW 28 (14) TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

TW 28 LW 22 (5) WHITE CHRISTMAS BING CROSBY

TW 29 LW 25 (16) STAGGER LEE LLOYD PRICE

TW 30 LW 26 (4) RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER GENE AUTRY

Also moving 16 positions this week is the latest by the Drifters: On Broadway goes downtown 16 blocks from 36th to 20th. And moving up 10 fine spots are the Chiffons with He’s So Fine. Here are #11 to #20:

TW 11 LW 21 (10) HE’S SO FINE CHIFFONS

TW 12 LW 13 (12) ONE FINE DAY CHIFFONS

TW 13 LW 12 (15) SILHOUETTES RAYS

TW 14 LW 14 (11) WHERE THE BOYS ARE CONNIE FRANCIS

TW 15 LW 18 (10) KEEP SEARCHIN' DEL SHANNON

TW 16 LW 10 (15) PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON PETER, PAUL&MARY

TW 17 LW 24 (9) YOU CAN’T CATCH ME CHUCK BERRY

TW 18 LW 19 (12) TWO FACES HAVE I LOU CHRISTIE

TW 19 LW 8 (16) THE WANDERER DION

TW 20 LW 36 (2) ON BROADWAY DRIFTERS

For the 1st time in 6 weeks, we have 2 new entries in the top 10:

It’s not make believe; Conway Twitty, after dropping 2 places last week, roars up 8 slots into the top 10, from #17 to #9.

And Dave Brubeck takes 3 this week, up from #11 to #8, with Take Five.

And falling 5 spots out of the #1 spot, is Judy’s Turn to Cry by Lesley Gore. It is tied for the 2nd biggest drop from #1 (with Runaround Sue, behind only Gore’s own You Don’t Own Me). These are #6 to #10:

TW 6 LW 1 (12) JUDY'S TURN TO CRY LESLEY GORE

TW 7 LW 3 (13) BLOWIN' IN THE WIND PETER, PAUL & MARY

TW 8 LW 11 (8) TAKE FIVE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET

TW 9 LW 17 (7) IT’S ONLY MAKE BELIEVE CONWAY TWITTY

TW 10 LW 7 (16) ALL THE WAY FRANK SINATRA

She’s not sorry at all; Brenda Lee scores her 1st top 5 hit with I’m Sorry, moving up 4 from #9 to #5. Here are the next 4 songs, #5 to #2:

TW 5 LW 9 (10) I’M SORRY BRENDA LEE

TW 4 LW 5 (10) TOWN WITHOUT PITY GENE PITNEY

TW 3 LW 4 (14) BLUE ON BLUE BOBBY VINTON

TW 2 LW 2 (13) POOR LITTLE FOOL RICKY NELSON

And now we’re up to the song that this week scores the 3rd biggest jump to #1. The biggest jump to #1 was Del Shannon’s Runaway back in week #3, which shot up 16 positions from #17 to #1. The 2nd biggest jump was the week before that, when (We’re Gonna) Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & His Comets cometed into the #1 spot from #9. And with the biggest leap to #1 in 44 weeks, up 5 spots from #6, the new #1 on Golden Oldies Top 40:

:drummer:

TW 1 LW 6 (9) FINGERTIPS (PART II) STEVIE WONDER

That's all for this week's countdown. In just 3 weeks, GO-40 will reach its 50th countdown. After week 50, we'll go through our archives and compile a list of nominees from which our panel (and anyone on SF is invited to participate, whether they have voted before or not), to vote on an "Ultimate Golden Oldies Top 40". Stay

tuned for more info. Until next week, keep your head in the stars :stars: and keep reaching for the ground. :doh:
