#1 Billboard Hot 100 Songs from 1961 #4M +#BoTB

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.

 

 

I’m on a blog hiatus for the most part for the next couple of weeks but I’m committed to  XmasDolly, Stacy, and Colette with co-hosting the best party dance party on the blockosphere.

 



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!

(reference only – not included)

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

 

Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional).

Which artist gets your vote – Suzi Quatro or TT Quick?

The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players and be sure to check back next week to learn the outcome of this battle.

What mewsic moves you today? ?

I’m “Taking It Easy” but I’ll get to you ASAP. Just leave a breadcrumb trail for me to follow in comments and I’ll find my way to your site soon. Have a groovy week, my friends and keep rockin’ on!

Here comes the sun & Rain clouds Photo Op – The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Last Tuesday morning, I woke to heavy rain fall. It so happened it was also trash pickup on our street. This job had to be done because I missed the previous week and our bins were in need of being emptied. I resolved to take it down rain or not. Luckily, I caught a break as the rain dissipated. The clouds were giving way to blue skies as I began my haul to the curb, but without first seizing the above photo-op.

Same as above, used Picmonkey’s Winterland theme “Chill”  effect

By Friday, March swept in like a lion with winter’s nip biting and snow showers. No accumulation, but my mind was ever so on spring’s arrival. Let’s hope that lion goes to sleep soon in our own backyard!
