On this day (5/23) in 1960, The Everly Brothers started a five week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Cathy's Clown'. Meaning, of course, that it was #1 when I was born.
The rest of the Top 5 on 5/23/1960:
- Cathy's Clown - Everly Brothers
- Stuck On You - Elvis Presley
- Good Timin' - Jimmy Jones
- Greenfields - Brothers Four
- Night - Jackie Wilson
There's not a lot of Songs from this week that are on my iPod. In fact, Elvis Presely's "Stuck On You (at #2) is the only other song in the Top 40 I have. In fact there's only a handfull of songs in the whole Hot 100 that I know. Not too surprising since I wasn't born yet. Cathy's Clown was ranked #149 on Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 songs of all time, and included in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's list of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll....
