Three weeks ago Johnny D. suggested we begin to look at various artist and pick our top 3 of their songs. I started with Gene Pitney and listed what his top 5 were, based on chart performance by Billboard. Then I listed my top, or favorite, songs too. No one else responded regarding Gene Pitney. Sorry Gene.
Today let’s try Brenda Lee. This will be hard for me because so many of her songs are among my favorites. Plus they tend to sound the same, which makes it even harder. First, I will give you the top 5 based on Billboard charting.
1. I’m Sorry – 1960
2. I Want to be Wanted – 1960
3. All Alone Am I – 1962
4. Fool #1 – 1961
5. Dum Dum – 1961
My top 3 are:
1. Heart in Hand – 1962
2. Break It To Me Gently – 1962
3. Fool #1 – 1961
I already put “Heart in Hand” under Oldie of the Week, so here is my #2
