Throwback Thursday: 1961


Two instrumentals that I'm not at all familiar with, though I am familiar with the artists from SNL and Barenaked Ladies fame, respectively! I would also like to point out that this means that 1961 started with nearly two solid months of instrumental #1's!

I enjoyed both of these, and i bet you will too!


Lawrence Welk - Calcutta (2/13/61-2/27/61)


Bert Kaempfert - Wonderland by Night (1/9/61-1/30/61)

Top Ten Tuesday: Bruno Mars & Cardi B "Finesse"

This song jumps 35 -> 3 after the video came out. And you'll be able to see why. The video is SO FUN! I really enjoyed this and I'm glad that it bumped it up to the Top Ten

Throwback Thursday: 1968

We've got two songs for the year 1968. I was confused because I thought, "But I know the words to 'Grazing in the Grass'!" And then I realized it was an instrumental cover. The 60's were crazy, man. AND HOLD THE PHONE. The instrumental was the original! The version that I know by The Friends of Distinction came out a year later. That really is insane.

Hugh Masekela - Grazing in the Grass (7/20/68-7/27/68)


This second song was at #1 for 5 weeks, which we haven't seen since the first week we were doing this theme, with Baauer's "Harlem Shake" staying at #1 for 5 weeks as well! There's only one instrumental that stayed at #1 for longer than 5 weeks. Can you guess what it is?

Paul Mauriat - Love is Blue (2/10/68-3/9/68)
