30. FAKIN' IT-- Simon & Garfunkel #23 Originally called themselves Tom and Jerry in 1957.
29. DON'T LET THE RAIN FALL ON ME-- Critters #39 Their biggest hit was "Mr. Dieingly Sad" which went to #17 in 1966. I don't remember ever hearing this one and I didn't like it the first time I heard it. But, it grows on you.
28. RUN, RUN, RUN-- Third Rail #53 Their only hit. Kind of a strange one. An interesting business report. This one also grows on you with many listenings.
27. REFLECTIONS-- Diana Ross & the Supremes #2 Their first hit as Diana Ross & the Supremes.
26. SOMEBODY HELP ME-- #47
