The survey for the best songs of 1963 always brings a wide range of answers. This year’s survey is no different, with 71 different songs getting attention, a slight decrease from last year’s record 78 songs. Two songs–by the Ronettes and Kingsmen–were repeats in the top five.
Here’s the top five songs from 1963 alphabetically by artist:
“Donna the Prima Donna” by Dion
“Louis Louis” by The Kingsmen
“Today I Met the Boy I’m Gonna Marry” by Darlene Love
“You Really Got a Hold on Me” by The Miracles
“Be My Baby” by The Ronettes
