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.

Name That Tune (from the above songs):  "You Were The Sunshine, Baby, Whenever You Smiled"  Answer below.  --RoadDog
