I liked Here Comes the Night, which was a hit here too, even if not such a big one.

NYC top 10 from 6/23/65:

1 1 I CAN’T HELP MYSELF - The Four Tops
2 5 (I Can’t Get No) SATISFACTION - The Rolling Stones
3 3 MR. TAMBOURINE MAN - The Byrds
4 2 WOOLY BULLY - Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs
5 6 YES, I’M READY - Barbara Mason
6 4 DARLING TAKE ME BACK - Lenny Welch
7 11 CARA, MIA - Jay & The Americans
8 26 I’M HENRY VIII, I AM - Herman’s Hermits
9 8 FOR YOUR LOVE - The Yardbirds
10 13 THEME FROM “A SUMMER PLACE” - The Lettermen

I'm a Happy Man, a big summer hit here by The Jive Five, jumped from 25 to 13 that week. Sitting in the Park by Billy Stewart jumped from 41 to 16. Take Me Back by Little Anthony & the Imperials jumped from 52 to 23.

"Here Comes the Night" was a big hit in Texas. I didn't know it wasn't big nationally. It was on all the stations I listened to.

How can songs like Here Comes the Night and Catch the Wind be 50 years old? It is a puzzle.
