    1968 was a tough year-- the death of Dr. King among the most serious reasons why. Vietnam and protests thereof began to dominate the political and music scenes in America (and, I have learned, in the UK as well).

    The Moody Blues debut and take our first #1 of this year. The Stones also go top 10.

    With this new year, as we head for a full circle around all 10 years of each decade, I am changing the retiring rules as we move into a second round.

    A song that stays in the top 40 can stay on for up to 52 weeks, a full year, before being retired.

    A song that is below #40 and has been on over 26 weeks (half a year) is retired

    A song that is below #75 and has been on over 13 weeks (1/4 a year) is retired.

    The new entry by Neil Diamond is 'New Orleans', not 'No Sad Songs'.

    'Some Velvet Morning' is another Duet by Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood.
    Many say that it is their best Duet together. It is certainly a very haunting
    and peculiar song. There are references to Phaedra in various parts of both
    singers lines. In Ancient Greek Mythology Phaedra was the daughter of King
    Minos of Crete & his wife, Queen Pasiphae. I used to lie in bed trying to work
    out what 'Some Velvet Morning' means, as a song. I never have worked it out.
    Some say that it is some kind of 'warning' - from Lee to Nancy. The style of
    music is so odd that someone gave it a name - 'Cowboy Psychedelia'.

    'Love Is Blue' by French Orchestra Leader Paul Mauriat, was the USA No.1 Single, for 5 Weeks, in 1968. It was
    really an instrumental version of 'L'amour Est Bleu', the 1967 Luxembourg Eurovision Song Contest entry, by
    Greek Singer Vicky - Vicky Leandros. 'Puppet On A String' by the UK's Sandie Shaw, Won that Year. Vicky was 4th.
    Vicky Leandros Won the 1972 ESC - again for Luxembourg - with 'Apres Toi'. 'Love Is Blue' is only one of 2 ESC
    connected Songs to reach No.1 in the USA, The other was the 1958 Italian entry, 'Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu', by
    Domenico Modugno. The Title means 'In the Blue That Is Painted In Blue'. It did not Win the ESC. It was 3rd.
    However, it became a huge Global Hit & it too spent 5 Weeks, at No.1, in the USA. It is also called 'Volare',
    which means, 'To Fly'. So, the only 2 ESC connected Songs, to reach No.1, in the USA, had 3 things in common.
    Neither actually Won the ESC, Both had 'Blue' in their Titles, & both spent 5 Weeks at No.1 there. The highest
    Charting USA Hit, that actually Won the ESC, is still 'Waterloo' by ABBA - No.6, (Billboard Hot 100), in 1974,

    Interesting trivia Zeus! What a coincidence there!

    1 The Beatles - I Am The Walrus
    2 The Moody Blues - Nights In White Satin
    3 Glen Campbell - By The Time I Get To Phoenix
    4 Dusty Springfield - The Look Of Love
    5 Donovan - Wear Your Love Like Heaven
    6 Paul Mauriat & His Orchestra - Love Is Blue
    7 The Rolling Stones - She's A Rainbow
    8 The Lemon Pipers - Green Tambourine
    9 The Monkees - Daydream Believer
    10 James & Bobby Purify - Do Unto Me
    11 Cream - Sunshine Of Your Love
    12 Classics IV - Spooky


    My current list is full of classics I love - I doubt the new retirement rules will help me renew my votes often from now on, I think.
    They need rappers like me
    So they can get on their fuckin' keyboards and make me the bad guy, Chun-Li
