The Countdown Continues (#80 - #61)
#80 - P.S. I LOVE YOU - The Beatles ( 1964)
Speaking of B-Sides, this was The Beatles' first flip side to their first British hit ... it proved to be a Top Ten Winner here in The States, too.
#79 - EVERYONE'S GONE TO THE MOON -Jonathan King (1965)
#78 - YOU'VE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY - Silkie (1965)
Another Lennon - McCartney penned tune, this one from their film "Help!"
#77 - AND I LOVE HER - The Beatles (1964)
And one of their own from their other movie ... you know, the black and white one.
#76 - NOBODY I KNOW - Peter and Gordon (1964)
More John and Paul for others ... this time given to the brother of Paul McCartney's girlfriend at the time, Peter Asher.
#75 - I ONLY WANT TO BE WITH YOU - Dusty Springfield (1964)
#74 - DON'T THROW OUR LOVE AWAY - The Searchers (1964)
#73 - THE WEDDING - Julie Rogers (1965)
A BEAUTIFUL Forgotten Hit from 1965.
#72 - TOBACCO ROAD - The Nashville Teens (1964)
#71 - I SAW HER STANDING THERE - The Beatles (1964)
#70 - TRUE LOVE WAYS - Peter and Gordon (1965)
One of my all-time favorite readings of this Buddy Holly tune.
#69 - HOW DO YOU DO IT? - Gerry and the Pacemakers (1964)
The Beatles were supposed to record this song but didn't want to ... so George Martin told them, "Fine, then come up with something better" ... so they did ... and "Please Please Me" became their first British #1 Record!
#68 - WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE - The Animals (1965)
#67 - THE LAST TIME - The Rolling Stones (1965)
#66 - BAD TO ME - Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas (1964)
Another Lennon and McCartney gem that should have been a MUCH bigger hit had it not been stuck on a B-Side here in America. It topped the charts on its own back home in Jolly Ol' England.
#65 - NEEDLES AND PINS - The Searchers (1964)
#64 - WILLOW WEEP FOR ME - Chad and Jeremy (1965)
#63 - DO YOU LOVE ME - The Dave Clark Five (1964)
The DC5's interpretation of a Motown Classic that really rocks!
#62 - I LIKE IT LIKE THAT - The Dave Clark Five (1965)
More by The Dave Clark Five ... these guys placed a total of 11 hits in the special Top 100 Countdown.
#61 - ANY WAY YOU WANT IT - The Dave Clark Five (1965)
Wow! Three in a row from The DC5!!!
