1960s Top 40 Rate

Number 5s

While there were several different UK singles charts during the 1960s (with the NME weekly chart being the most widely followed), the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles and, subsequently, the Official Charts Company use the Record Retailer chart as their reference during this period, so that's the one we'll be using here. The 'Official' Singles Charts, as we know it, didn't begin until February 1969.

These series of rates will cover March 1960 (when the chart expanded to a Top 40 for the first time) to December 1969.

Below is a chronological list of all the singles which peaked at No.5 in the UK during the 1960s. Rate your faves, and the winner will go through to the final Ultimate Top 40 (where it will join the best No.1, No.2 etc).

+1 Manfred Mann - Fox On The Run

rediscovery of a forgotten gem: Billy Fury - In Summer

The rest: so many childhood fondness mixed with bonafide classics that the early 60ís get completely edged out bar one. Fabulous top 30, love em all. Iím perfectly comfortable with Val Doonican beating Bowie, and Hendrix and Julie Driscoll beating Dylan.

Everyone should have a go, there at least 10 famous songs here!
