Bruce Willis? Seriously?

By coincidence, I sent Bill the NY top 25 from the late, lamented WMCA from 50 years ago today, this morning.

Here is the top 10, which I would put up against any of the other lists (with the exception of the Mitch Ryder song):

1 1 PENNY LANE - The Beatles
2 2 RUBY TUESDAY - The Rolling Stones
3 3 I’VE BEEN LONELY TOO LONG - The Young Rascals
4 4 LOVE IS HERE AND NOW YOU’RE GONE - The Supremes
5 11 SOCK IT TO ME--BABY! - Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels
6 7 DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE - The Mamas & The Papas
7 5 THERE’S A KIND OF HUSH / NO MILK TODAY - Herman’s Hermits
8 6 GIMME SOME LOVIN’ - The Spencer Davis Group
9 14 HAPPY TOGETHER - The Turtles
10 19 BERNADETTE - The Four Tops
