A friend of mine sent me this link to a web site that plays oldies in the form of a jukebox.

Playa Coli has any number of tunes, selectable by year, from 1950-1982 or so. For instance, right now I’m listening to Let’s Go by The Routers from 1962. I seriously doubt I’ve heard that song since 1962 either.

For each year, you can view a list of the top hits for that year. Here’s a list of the Top Ten out of the Top 50 for 1960.

1. Cathy’s Clown, Everly Brothers
2. He’ll Have To Go, Jim Reeves
3. Theme From “A Summer Place”, Percy Faith
4. It’s Now Or Never, Elvis Presley
5. Teen Angel, Mark Dinning
6. I’m Sorry, Brenda Lee
7. Running Bear, Johnny Preston
8. Handy Man, Jimmy Jones
9. Stuck On You, Elvis Presley
10. The Twist, Chubby Checker
11. Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool, Connie Francis
12. Alley-Oop, Hollywood Argyles
13. Greenfields, Brothers Four
14. What In The World’s Come Over You, Jack Scott
15. El Paso, Marty Robbins
16. Wild One, Bobby Rydell
17. My Heart Has A Mind Of Its Own, Connie Francis
18. Sweet Nothin’s, Brenda Lee
19. Only The Lonely, Roy Orbison
20. Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini, Brian Hyland

  1. I love the Everly brothers. I don’t remember Cathy’s Clown as being very flattering to Cathys though. I will be visiting that site. Thank you.

  2. Cathy’s Clown was about a guy singing the blues because Cathy had dumped him. He was feeling pretty low, thinking everyone was laughing at him.

    “Here he comes. That’s Cathy’s clown.”

    Maybe Cathy was a bit rough on the guy.

  3. Must have been the evil Cathy. She can be mean sometimes.
