1960s Top 40 Rate

Number 3s

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 most famous "injustice" being The Beatles' Please, Please Me being knocked down as a No.2, when it was a number one in all the other charts at the time). 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.3 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).

Hi AH, Ive been cheeky and added in Ruby Tuesday to Let's Spend The Night Together (it was a double A, Ruby was the airplay track, Night the more banned side). Hope that's OK - Ruby is fab, and I don't rate the other track so I have an invested interest laugh.gif

PS I'm glad to see (now Ive done my chart - I never peak) that many of the tracks I wanted to give points to are in your chart eg Bobby's Girl, so it's win-win for me... cheer.gif and the same number one! ohmy.gif

+1 Neil Sedaka - Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen

Phew! I had to omit so many faves to get 50. Bacharach/David top 2 and this time a lot more from the early 60ís than is usual for me because the big hits I knew well at the time pretty much from 1963 onwards. Iím not old or owt, but Ive seen the following live in concert: Monkees (3 times), Four Tops (both groups original line-ups), Tina Turner, Temptations, Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, Mary Wells (of The Supremes), Bobby Vee, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich, The Seekers (original line-ups for the last two, The Seekers are still going), Neil Sedaka (twice), Cher, Eden Kane, The Beach Boys (twice, original line-up), Andy Fairweather-Low (of Amen Corner).

Ones Iím gutted I missed while they were touring: Roy Orbison, Gene Pitney, and, so far, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Kinks, Sandie Shaw. Dusty, Cilla, Mama Cass, Otis were not touring when I was old enough..

laugh.gif that's fine. I completely forgot about Ruby Tuesday but i like it as much as LSTNT so happily i dont need to edit my votes. To be fair, i did write it all up at four in the morning, whilst still recovering from a messy hangover the night before, so i think i can be forgiven that error laugh.gif

Thrilled to see dusty's best on top for you too. A timeless and flawless recording - one of my 40 all time faves i'd say!

Same here, love that Dusty track to bits, I loved it to bits when I was 6 years old and mad on pop music and Doctor Who, and I loved it to bits when I was 58 and mad on pop music and Doctor Who laugh.gif How I've changed.....!
