WLS Top 40 for December 9, 1968-- Part 4: "Promises, Promises"

25.  CLOUD NINE--  Temptations      #6    The Temps getting psychedelic with that hard life.  Originally the Primes then the Elgins.

24.  PROMISES, PROMISES--  Dionne Warwick      #19    Bacharach and David could sure write 'em.  Dionne could sure sing 'em.   From East Orange, New Jersey.

23.  I'M GONNA MAKE YOU LOVE ME--  Diana Ross / Supremes       #2    With the Temptations.   Now there's a combination for you.  Was this song by the Primettes and Primes?

22.  THOSE WERE THE DAYS--   Mary Hopkin      #2      By far her biggest hit.   Hard to believe that "Those Days" are over fifty years ago.

21.  HANG 'EM HIGH--  Booker T. & the MGs     #9   Another great instrumental.  Sounds western to me.  I can almost see that cowboy riding off into the sunset.   Title song of the Clint Eastwood movie.

Name That Tune (from the above songs):  "The Childhood Part Of My Life Wasn't Very Pretty."  Answer below.  --RoadDog

PC  INCORRECT CHRISTMAS SONGS:  "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"--  subjecting minors to soft porn.
