So today?, What was on the charts 6/3/1961? Based on the charts released 6/1/1961:
- It's My Party - Lesley Gore
- If You Wanna Be Happy - Jimmy Soul
- I Love You Because - Al Martino
- Surfin' U.S.A. - Beach Boys
- Da Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home) - Crystals
I actually recognize 4 of those songs, and only have one. Still, not too bad considering I was not quite 3 at the time....
Other noatbles in the Top 40:
- I Will Follow Him Little-Peggy March
- Another Saturday Night - Sam Cooke
- Puff The Magic Dragon - Peter, Paul & Mary
- Shut Down - Beach Boys
One interesting note....
Seems like a food week, or at least Pastromi: at #15 was Hot Pastrami by Dartells. At #36 was Hot Pastrami With Mashed Potatoes by Joey Dee & The Starliters. Not surprising, these were the only 2 songs ever to make the Top 40....
