Here’s the Top Ten @ 10 for November 22, 1963, as heard on the Thanksgiving edition of “The Grooveyard” with Alan Seltzer. Since the survey was for the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it’s appropriate we offer this bonus video of Dion performing “Abraham Martin and John”…
Now on to the survey itself…

#9 “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen
#8 “Washington Square” by The Village Stompers
#7 “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight” by Barry and the Tamerlanes
