The Supremes hold down the #1 spot for one more week on The Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles Chart as THE ANIMALS move into the #2 position with their first American Chart Hit, THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT by THE BEATLES falls to #4, BECAUSE holds at #7 for THE DAVE CLARK FIVE and HOW DO YOU DO IT by GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS hangs on at #10.
WISHIN' AND HOPIN' finally falls out of The Top Ten to #11 this week for DUSTY SPRINGFIELD. THE BEATLES are still making their presence known as AND I LOVE HER climbs to #13, AIN'T SHE SWEET falls to #24 and I'LL CRY INSTEAD climbs to #29. IT'S ALL OVER NOW by THE ROLLING STONES climbs to #34 while their previous hit, TELL ME, falls from #27 to #38. Sandwiched in between is I'LL KEEP YOU SATISFIED by BILLY J. KRAMER AND THE DAKOTAS, now sitting at #36 … and rounding out The Top 40 with 11 British Hits.
IF I FELL by THE BEATLES, RINGO'S THEME by GEORGE MARTIN (from the same film, A HARD DAY'S NIGHT) and SOME DAY WE'RE GONNA LOVE AGAIN by THE SEARCHERS hold down positions 54, 55 and 56 respectively while A SUMMER SONG by CHAD AND JEREMY climbs from #85 to #70. Meanwhile, FROM A WINDOW by BILLY J. KRAMER AND THE DAKOTAS moves to #79. (CHAD AND JEREMY would release THEIR version of the Lennon - McCartney tune FROM A WINDOW a year later!)
August closes with THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN by THE ANIMALS at #2, BECAUSE by THE DAVE CLARK FIVE at #5, A HARD DAY'S NIGHT by THE BEATLES at #6, WISHIN' AND HOPIN' by DUSTY SPRINGFIELD at #7 and HOW DO YOU DO IT by GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS at #10, giving The British Invasion Artists HALF of this week's Top Ten Hits in Chicago according to The WLS Silver Dollar Survey.
That's some serious domination … but you won't find another British Hit until you reach #28 where THE ROLLING STONES sit with IT'S ALL OVER NOW. Right behind them at #29 are CHAD AND JEREMY and their latest hit, A SUMMER SONG … but that's it for a British presence on this week's Chicagoland chart.
