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.
