WLS Top 40 for August 11, 1967-- Part 5: "Silence Is Golden"
20. COME BACK WHEN YOU GROW UP-- Bobby Vee #3 His last Top Ten. From 1960-1961 had four Top Tens. Got his big break when he filled in for Buddy Holly after he died in that famous plane crash.
19. MY MAMMY-- Happenings #13 Follow up to their #3 "I Got Rhythm." We heard "I Got Rhythm" on MeTVFM today while driving out to Woodstock, Illinois. We hadn't heard this song in many, many, many years. Those vocals! Wow!
I imagine you couldn't sing this song these days as someone might get offended.
18. C-MON MARIANNE-- Four Seasons #9 Their last Top Ten until 1975.
17. A GIRL LIKE YOU-- Young Rascals #10 Blue-eyed soul group.
16. ROMEO & JULIET-- Michael & the Messengers No rank. WLS supporting another local band. Well, actually Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Even if they were Cheeseheads.
Name That Tune (from above songs): "You're Still Livin' In a Paper Doll World." Answer below. --RoadDog
