Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: John & Olivia's summer fling (don't mean a thing)



Each week I feature 10 groovy tunes that reached the Top 10 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 Petula Clark remained at the top with "Downtown", which received 34 votes out of the 146 cast. And this week she will be challenged by Sarah Vaughan, Three Dog Night and John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

1) "Downtown"/Petula Clark (Last Week #1, W35) - 15 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1964-65



2) "Last Dance"/Donna Summer (LW #4, W8) - #55 the week of September 16, 1978



3) "Fame"/Irene Cara (W2) - #4 the week of September 13, 1980

I fear that I'm beginning to sound like a broken record... but I'm going with Miss. Clark, ABBA & Cyndi again this week. Does this make me predictable?!?

I'm afraid so, Lance - but that's okay. You go right ahead and like what you like!
