Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: It's fun to stay at the "Y.M.C.A."

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 Donna Summer reclaimed the top spot with "Last Dance", which received 28 votes out of the 148 cast. And this week she will be challenged by Olivia Newton-John, The 5th Dimension and Village People.

1) "Last Dance"/Donna Summer (Last Week #4, Week 28) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1978

2) "Words of Love"/The Mamas & the Papas (W2) - #14 the week of February 11, 1967

3) "Never Can Say Goodbye"/Gloria Gaynor (LW #3, W4) - #20 the week of February 8, 1975

4) "Here You Come Again"/Dolly Parton (LW #2, W5) - #55 the week of February 11, 1978

5) "Crazy"/Patsy Cline (LW #5, W9) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1961-62

Oh dear. I guess I really DID grow up in a pretty heavily sheltered midwestern farm community. Looking at the Village People "Cruisin" album cover NOW... well it just screams gay (like it didn't way back then). Anyway... this week I'm voting for Patsy, Dolly and the Village People.

Coming from a small Midwestern town myself, I understand what you're saying, Lance.
