WLS Top 40 Songs for November 4, 1968-- Part 1: "Little Arrows"
These songs were in the Top 40 in Chicago back 50 years ago according to the WLS 890 AM's Silver Dollar Survey.
(D) means it is a debut. The number after the artist is how high the song got on the Billboard Top 100.
40. STORMY-- Classics IV (D) #5 "Stormy" and "Spooky" Good songs for this season of the year. Quintet from Jacksonville, Florida. One of three Top 5s.
39. LITTLE ARROWS-- Leapy Lee (D) #16 A true One-Hit Wonder. From Eastbourne, England. How can you not like this catchy little tune? Give it a listen if you've never heard it before or haven't heard it in a long time (like me).
38. TAKE ME FOR A LITTLE WHILE-- Vanilla Fudge (D) #38 Psychedelic Rock band from New York formed in 1966. How to psychedelicize a great old soul song.
37. ALWAYS TOGETHER-- Dells (D) #18 From Harvey, Illinois. I'd never heard this song before. Good belly-rubbin' song. Smooth Soul.
36. I LOVE HOW YOU LOVE ME-- Bobby Vinton (D) #9 A great slow-dancing song. How romantic can you get? This would make a great first dance wedding song.
