1960s Top 40 Rate

Number 17s

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.17 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).


Jerry Lordan - Who Could Be Bluer
Buzz Clifford - Baby Sittin' Boogie
Duane Eddy - Ring Of Fire
Hayley Mills - Let's Get Together
Jim Reeves - You're The Only Good Thing (That Happened To Me)
Dorothy Provine - Don't Bring Lulu
G-Clefs - I Understand (Just How You Feel)
Buddy Holly - Reminiscing
Beatles - Love Me Do
Crickets - My Little Girl
Tornados - Robot
Nino Tempo & April Stevens - Deep Purple
Chris Sandford - Not Too Little - Not Too Much
Fourmost - I'm In Love
Kathy Kirby - You're The One
Gigliola Cinquetti - Non Ho L'Eta Per Amarti
Brenda Lee - Is It True?
Shadows - Genie With The Light Brown Lamp
Brian Pooe & The Tremeloes - Three Bells
Shadows - Mary Anne
Petula Clark - I Know A Place
Kinks - Everybody's Gonna Be Happy
Cilla Black - I've Been Wrong Before

hooray! The Fabs have to be in the list at least once!

It's a great chart overall, with many of them bigger hits in later decades, or in covers, literally only a handful of them have never been covered or reissued hits, so pretty much an accurate rundown of greats
