WLS Top 40 for August 11, 1967-- Part 6: "Silence Is Golden"

15.  SILENCE IS GOLDEN--  Tremeloes   #11   Their biggest hit.

14.  TAKE ME BACK--  Flock    Did not rank.  Again, WLS backing the local boys.  You like horns?  Give it a listen.

13.  THE LORD FOR THE NIGHTTIME--  Neil Diamond  #13   His "Solitary Man" (#55-1966) is still my favorite Neil Diamond song.

12.  MERCY, MERCY, MERCY--  Buckinghams  #5   WLS backing yet another Chicago band.  Wikipedia calls them "an American sunshine pop band from Chicago."  One of the top-selling music acts of 1967 when they had all five of their Top 40s.

11.  WHITER SHADE OF PALE--  Procul Harum   #5  A classic Classic Rock song.  Anybody know what "Procul Harum" means?

Name That Tune (from above songs):  "We Skipped the Light Fandango, Turned Cartwheels Across the Floor."  Answer below.  --RoadDog

"Whiter Shade of Pale"
