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
