Top Ten: Flashback 1963

There was no Top Ten @ 10 feature on this week’s edition of “The Grooveyard” due to the Flashback special focusing on the music and events of 1961.  Here’s the Top Ten songs from that year:


“Save the Last Dance for Me” by The Drifters


“Handy Man” by Jimmy Jones


“Running Bear” by Johnny Preston


“It’s Now or Never” by Elvis Presley

…and a special Mother’s Day tribute to Elvis’ mother, Gladys…


“Night” by Jackie Wilson


“Why” by Frankie Avalon


“Alley Oop” by Dante and the Evergreens


“Cathy’s Clown” by The Everly Brothers


“The Twist” by Chubby Checker


“Theme From ‘A Summer’s Place'” by Percy Faith and His Orchestra
