Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: A few "Words" from The Mamas & the Papas



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 Cyndi Lauper reclaimed the top spot with "Time After Time", which received 28 votes out of the 149 cast. Patsy Cline and Barbra Streisand tied for fifth place, allowing them both to stay on the list. And this week they will be challenged by Dionne Warwick, The Vogues and The Mamas & the Papas.

1) "Time After Time"/Cyndi Lauper (Last Week #5, Week 34) - 20 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1984



2) "Here You Come Again"/Dolly Parton (LW #2, W4) - #25 the week of February 4, 1978



3) "Never Can Say Goodbye"/Gloria Gaynor (LW #4, W3) - #13 the week of February 1, 1975



4) "Last Dance"/Donna Summer (LW #5, W27) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1978



5) "Crazy"/Patsy Cline (LW #1, W8) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1961-62



5) "Stoney End"/Barbra Streisand (W2) - #10 the week of January 30, 1971



7) "Anyone Who Had a Heart"/Dionne Warwick (DEBUT) - #9 the week of February 1, 1964



8) "Five O'Clock World"/The Vogues (DEBUT) - #5 the week of January 29, 1966



9) "Words of Love"/The Mamas & the Papas (DEBUT) - #6 the week of February 4, 1967



10) "Soulful Strut"/Young-Holt Unlimited (DEBUT) - #9 the week of February 1, 1969

No matter how much I may love The Mamas & The Papas... I'm sticking with my new favourite threesome: Patsy, Dolly & Cyndi this week.
