Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Thank you for joining me on the dance floor with “60s Rock Songs” requested by today’s Spotlight Dancer, Mike Golch. My first song selection was written by Gerry Coffin and Carole King and recorded by an all-girl band who took this single to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list in 1961 (the year I was born) from the “Tonight’s the Night” album, The Shirelles!
In keeping with my birth year, the next song to top the Billboard Hot 100 charts is a cover by the doo-wop band, The Marcels.
My last “60s Rock Song” from 1961 to soar to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 list is one of my favorites has an interesting history but I’ll save that for another time is, The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
While I have the old turntable spinning, let’s keep those feet happy with today’s #BoTB cover song!
Mike’s last week 4M playlist inspired this showdown. This 60s rock song topped the leader board in the USA (1964) and became the first hit for this British band, Dave Clark Five!

This is gonna be a battle of the sexes. Female lead singer Vs Male lead singer, both new-to-me cover bands a bit edgier and heavier than I normally listen to but enjoyed.
Contender # 1 Suzi Quatro
Contender #2 TT Quick
