WLS Top 40 for December 9, 1968-- Part 2: "Crimson & Clover"

(D) means Debut.  The number after artist is how high it got on the national Billboard Top 100 charts.

35.  LO MUCH QUE TE QUIERA--  Rene / Rene     #14    Their biggest hit.   From Laredo, Texas.   A Spanish-English song in 1968.  Way before the huge Hispanic influx.

34.  TOO WEAK TO FIGHT--  Clarence Carter    (D)      #13    Blind since the age of one.  DR. CC.  Now, this is some real good soul, but way too short at 2:17.   We need More Clarence!!

33.  HOOKED ON A FEELING--  B.J. Thomas    #5     That B.J. stands for Billy Joe.  Try to hear it and not tap your toes.

32.  CYCLES--  Frank Sinatra     #23      The Pride and Joy of Hoboken, New Jersey.   Ol' Blue Eyes looking at life as only he can.  Doing it his way.

31.  CRIMSON & CLOVER--  Tommy James / Shondells    (D)    #1    Their biggest hit.   Definitely not like their former songs.  Getting all peaceful and psychedelic on us.

Name That Tune (from the above songs):  "Girl You Don't Realize What You Do To Me."  Answer below.   --RoadDog

IT'S ALL IN THE NAME:  An exercise guru's son named Jim.
