cry.gif 1960s Top 40 Rate - The 'Impossible' Part 6 cry.gif

Numbers 31 and 32s

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.



Due to the relatively obscure nature of the tracks below you can vote as follows:

+10
+9
+8
+7
+6
+5
+4
+3
+2
+1

If you can't pick ten songs, you can try four:

+10
+7
+4
+1

And alternatively, if you can only pick three:

+10
+5
+1

Little John, aged 5 or 6, I was MAD on Fireball XL5 and the theme tune, and also Hole In My Bucket. The only other ones I knew were Walker Bros, Gene and Cher, so the rest are discoveries along with about half of the top 10 for 31's.
