cry.gif 1960s Top 40 Rate - The 'Impossible' Part 8 cry.gif

Numbers 34 and 38s

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

Bachelors - Hello Dolly
Merseybeats - I Stand Accused
Elvis Presley - You Gotta Stop/Love Machine

4. Tommy James & The Shondells - Hanky Panky 12
Timebox - Beggin' 12
Gene Pitney - (In The) Cold Light Of Day 12

which leaves....another tie.

The highest score these records got were a miserable 19, but which one goes through? As always, it's all down to the most +10s, +9s, +8s etc...

So...

Ruby & The Romantics - Our Day Will Come 19 (+10 - popchartfreak, +9 - darkstar79)
Scaffold - Gin Gan Goolie 19 (+10 - Richie, +8 - darkstar79, +1 - AH Gold)
