Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: "Never Can Say Goodbye" to the "Son of a Preacher Man"

Each week I feature 10 groovy tunes that have appeared on Billboard's Hot 100 chart during the last 50+ years. You can vote for your three favorites, and the five with the most votes move on to the following week when five new songs will be added to the list.

Last week we had to say goodbye to Petula Clark's "Downtown" after 51 weeks, while Patsy Cline's "Crazy" remained in the top spot after receiving 43 votes out of the 228 cast. And this week she will be challenged by Barbra Streisand, Dusty Springfield and Gloria Gaynor.

1) "Crazy"/Patsy Cline (Last Week #1, Week 6) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1961-62

2) "Here You Come Again"/Dolly Parton (W2) - #3 the week of January 21, 1978

3) "Time After Time"/Cyndi Lauper (LW #4, W32) - 20 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1984

4) "Last Dance"/Donna Summer (LW #1, W25) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1978

5) "I Love the Nightlife (Disco 'Round)"/Alicia Bridges (LW #3, W3) - #49 the week of January 20, 1979

6) "Sugar Town"/Nancy Sinatra (DEBUT) - #8 the week of January 21, 1967

7) "Son of a Preacher Man"/Dusty Springfield (DEBUT) - #10 the week of January 18, 1969

9) "Never Can Say Goodbye"/Gloria Gaynor (DEBUT) - #10 the week of January 18, 1975

10) "Guilty"/Barbra Streisand & Barry Gibb (DEBUT) - #3 the week of January 17, 1981

It's really very sad to see Miss. Clark go away. I hope we'll see her back again someday soon.

This week, I'm voting for Patsy, Dolly and Barbra & Barry. What a groovy selection of music! =)

51 weeks is a fabulous run, Lance! But I'm sure Ms. Clark will return to the list someday.
