I still think 'It's All in the Game' is a stone cold classic. I'd also single out Chantilly Lace, It's Only Make Believe and the evergreen Summertime Blues cheers

I just got word from my mother today that singer (#40 above) Dale Hawkins just passed away. I don't know any of the details as of yet. Dale also was also a hit on the charts in 1957 with "Susie-Q" which peaked at #27. Another legend gone. R.I.P.
