THE ANIMALS are #1 again this week (for the third week in a row) on The Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles Chart. New in The Top Ten is DO WAH DIDDY DIDDY by MANFRED MANN, up from #31 to #9. THE DAVE CLARK FIVE also have the #8 Hit with BECAUSE.
A HARD DAY'S NIGHT by THE BEATLES falls to #12. IT'S ALL OVER NOW by THE ROLLING STONES is at #26. THE BEATLES are also holding on to the #28 spot with AND I LOVE HER (down from #12 the week before) and then we've got three British hits in a row at numbers 30, 31 and 32 with A SUMMER SONG by CHAD AND JEREMY, HOW DO YOU DO IT by GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS and MATCHBOX by THE BEATLES respectively.
THE SEARCHERS are at #35 with SOME DAY WE'RE GONNA LOVE AGAIN, BILLY J. KRAMER AND THE DAKOTAS are holding down the #37 spot with FROM A WINDOW … and that's it for British Artists in The Top 40.
Bringing up the rear: SLOW DOWN by THE BEATLES (#43), IF I FELL (also by THE BEATLES) at #55, RINGO'S THEME (which is actually THIS BOY by THE BEATLES, done as an instrumental by their producer GEORGE MARTIN), at #57, GONNA SEND YOU BACK TO WALKER by THE ANIMALS (#65), TOBACCO ROAD (up to #72 from #90 for THE NASHVILLE TEENS), I WOULDN'T TRADE YOU FOR THE WORLD by THE BACHELORS (#80), IT'S FOR YOU (a LENNON-McCARTNEY tune recorded by CILLA BLACK) at #84, first week on the chart, HAVE I THE RIGHT by THE HONEYCOMBS, brand new at #90 (and a GREAT overlooked track, by the way, that eventually topped the chart here in Chicago) and SOMEONE SOMEONE by BRIAN POOLE at #97.
The WLS Silver Dollar Survey has been revamped yet again this week. It now shows The Top 30 Most Popular Pop Hits … along with a Top 10 R&B Music Survey that will run through the end of the year. (Their first 1965 chart returned them to a true Top 40 Chart.)
This week THE ANIMALS fall to the #2 spot after just one week on top with THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN. That's because they've got some VERY stiff competition in the way of OH, PRETTY WOMAN by ROY ORBISON, which will top the chart for the next five consecutive weeks, and LAST KISS by J. FRANK WILSON AND THE CAVALIERS (#3 this week).
DO WAH DIDDY DIDDY by MANFRED MANN is at #5, followed by A SUMMER SONG by CHAD AND JEREMY at #6, BECAUSE by THE DAVE CLARK FIVE at #7 and A HARD DAY'S NIGHT by THE BEATLES at #10.
THE ROLLING STONES hold down the #17 spot with IT'S ALL OVER NOW, followed by FROM A WINDOW by BILLY J. KRAMER AND THE DAKOTAS at #20, SOME DAY WE'RE GONNA LOVE AGAIN by THE SEARCHERS at #26 and MATCHBOX / SLOW DOWN by THE BEATLES at #30.
