Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: "God Only Knows" what I'd be without the Beach Boys



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 Mama Cass claimed the top spot with "Dream a Little Dream of Me", which received 29 votes out of the 163 cast. And this week she will be challenged by Dusty Springfield, ABBA and the Beach Boys.

1) "Dream a Little Dream of Me"/Mama Cass with the Mamas & the Papas (Week 2) - 11 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1968



2) "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me"/Dusty Springfield (LW #3, W8) - 13 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1966



3) "California Dreamin'"/The Mamas & the Papas (LW #2, W22) - 17 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1966



4) "Knowing Me, Knowing You"/ABBA (LW #1, W7) - 15 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1977



5) "Walk On By"/Dionne Warwick (LW #5, W11) - 13 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1964

WOW! For the first week of September, we have some REALLY hard choices to make (at least I think so). In the end, I had to whittle the list down to The Beach Boys, Mama Cass and (of course) Karen & Richard.

But ABBA and The Mamas & The Papas weren't too far behind...
