The Music Machine sit at #1 with their Garage Band Classic, "Talk Talk" (hardly #1 material but hey, it was the '60's ... so anything goes!!!)
Obviously this is the case ... since Roger Williams is at #3 with "Born Free"!!! (Not two songs you'd EVER expect to hear played back-to-back together! Thankfully we had The Beach Boys breaking up this mismatch with their '60's classic "Good Vibrations", down from #1 the week before.
All kinds of goofy songs and mistakes can be found on this chart ... "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" ... by The PALACE Guardsmen?!?! A couple of Monkees LP cuts at #23 (in addition to their legitimate hit at #18, here referred to simply as "Clarksville") ... they've also got "I'm A Believer" debuting at #37!
Being a South Florida station, I guess it's really no surprise to see wild man Wayne Cochran at #19 with his latest (up nine points from the week before), "Going Back To Miami".
DIDJAKNOW?: WQAM reportedly stood for "We Quit At Midnight"!!! That was the time this station signed off the air, picking up again at 6 am the following day. (Maybe that's why their Million Dollar Weekend" ran from 3 pm to Midnight???) Interesting!
"Popsicles And Icicles" by The Murmaids is at #2 ... this song was one of the very first chart successes for songwriter David Gates who, ten year later, would be topping a few charts of his own with his new group Bread. Our FH Buddies The Rip Chords (another surfin' band apparently doing very well in land-locked Minnesota!) are at #10 with "Hey Little Cobra", their biggest pop hit. You'll also find our pal Tommy Roe at #15 with "Everybody", down a notch from the week before.
