Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Tunes: Petula Clark knows a swingin' place



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 the Mamas & the Papas claimed the top spot with "California Dreamin'", which received 27 votes out of the 176 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Petula Clark, Louis Armstrong and the Carpenters.

1) "California Dreamin'"/The Mamas & the Papas (Last Week #4, Week 3) - #19 the week of April 23, 1966



2) "Crazy"/Patsy Cline (LW #5, W19) - 21 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1961-62



3) "Here Comes the Rain Again"/Eurythmics (LW #2, W5) - #18 the week of April 28, 1984



4) "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"/Cyndi Lauper (LW #1, W7) - #33 the week of April 28, 1984

Once again, you're featuring some of my all-time favourites Marc! I'm voting for Miss. Cline, The Mamas & The Papas, and (of course) Karen & Richard. Have a truly groovy week!
