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
