Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Holiday Tunes: The Carpenters at Christmas



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 Dionne Warwick claimed the top spot for the first time with "I Say a Little Prayer", which received 25 votes out of the 132 cast. And this week she will be challenged by five holiday tunes that appeared on either Billboard's Hot 100 chart or Christmas Singles chart.

PLEASE NOTE: The next new Top 10 will be on Tuesday, January 1.

1) "I Say a Little Prayer"/Dionne Warwick (Last Week #4, Week 3) - #10 the week of December 23, 1967



2) "Time After Time"/Cyndi Lauper (LW #3, W29) - 20 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1984



3) "Crazy"/Patsy Cline (LW #1, W3) - #25 the week of December 23, 1961



4) "Last Dance"/Donna Summer (LW #5, W22) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1978

Thought for sure I would have three Christmas tunes this week but it turned out several of the choices were songs I don't care for. So it ended up being just the Carpenters and the Christmas Song and good old Petula.

Well, since I am a self-professed SERIOUS "Christmas Queen" this turned out to be a pretty easy week to choose. I'm going with Brenda, Nat and (of course) Karen & Richard.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS, Marc!! =)
