Nice list. I can't say I'm familiar with the Elvis song.

The NYC top 10 of 9/29/65:

1 1 YESTERDAY - The Beatles
2 3 HANG ON SLOOPY - The McCoys
3 5 THE “IN” CROWD - The Ramsey Lewis Trio
4 2 EVE OF DESTRUCTION - Barry McGuire
5 4 YOU WERE ON MY MIND - We Five
6 7 HELP! - The Beatles
7 10 CATCH US IF YOU CAN - The Dave Clark Five
8 11 IT AIN’T ME BABE - The Turtles
9 9 YOU’VE GOT YOUR TROUBLES - The Fortunes
10 18 1-2-3 - Len Barry

"A Lover's Concerto" by The Toys (from Jamaica, Queens, though a couple of them were actually from North Carolina) jumped from 22 to 11. "Get Off of My Cloud" by the Stones jumped to 15 from the "Sure Shot" the week before.

Three others on the way up:

23 51 KEEP ON DANCING - The Gentrys
24 42 LET’S HANG ON! - The 4 Seasons
25 -- LIAR, LIAR - The Castaways

I wonder what Platter Princess Patti Helms of Hampton High is doing these days?

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

I noticed that too, Deb. Since she is undoubtedly at least my age I can only hope she's still going strong.

Rock on, Platter Princess. Jeff

Knock, knock.

Who's there?

Sam and Janet.

Sam and Janet who?

Sam and Janet evening, you may see a stranger...

I love that version by Jay and the Americans.
