*BEST SONGS OF A HALF CENTURY AGO...AND TODAY

This is a Sunday, so let me just groove into nostalgia and present the #1 song of 1960.  The problem is that the list depends on the compiler.  There is no consistency.  You can click on the top ten for each site below and/or on the You Tube performance:






1.  The Theme From "A Summer Place" - Percy Faith  (Troy Donahue and Sandra Dee from the movie.  Contrary to rumors, Troy was not gay.)

1. Beyond The Sea - Bobby Darin  (with wife Sandra Dee)



Here is a definite shock, though.  Remember how many of you scan the top ten of today and don't even know one song?  Well, if you're old enough, that is usually the case.  This week, though, Billboard has the top three albums as:

1.  The Gift - Susan Boyle (remember the #2 from Britain's Got Talent?)







2.  O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho (#2 from America's Got Talent)











3.  Loud - Rihanna (remember her beating by Chris Brown?)

But those are albums.  As to songs of today:

1.  Only Girl (in the World) - Rihana

2.  Raise Your Glass - Pink





3.  Like a G6 - Far*East Movement (first Asian group to make Billboard Top Ten)
