In vergelyking met ‘Forget the money’ (2de week) en ‘Do the Clan’ (3de week) het ‘Under the boardwalk’ eers in sy 6de week no.1 bereik. Hierdie was ook ‘Forget the money’ se 4de en laaste week op die Hit Parade (3-1-2-5).

Die twee sangers wat hierdie week hul debuut op die Hit Parade maak sou in die volgende jare die ‘Groot Vier’ uitdaag op die gewildheidsleer. Donovan se liedjie weerspieel sy klas:

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty

I want to be

In the warm hold of your loving mind

To feel you all around me

And to take your hand

Along the sand

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

When sundown pales the sky

I want to hide a while

Behind your smile

And everywhere I’d look your eyes I’d find

For me to love you now would be the greatest thing

It would make me sing

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

Diddy diddy diddy diddy diddy

Diddy diddy diddy diddy

When rain has hung the leaves with tears

I want you near to kill my fears

To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standing in your heart is where I want to be

And long to be

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

1. Do the clan – Elvis (3)

2. Forget the money – Connie Francis (1)

3. Shabby little hut – Bats (5)

4. Under the boardwalk – Rolling Stones (4)

6. Mrs. Brown, you’ve got a lovely daughter – Herman’s Hermits (nuut)

7. The last time – Rolling Stones (7)

8. The Tennessee yodel polka – Slim Whitman & Virginia Lee

‘Forget the money’ blyk toe ‘n verskietende ster te wees (3-1-2). Elvis wen hierdie week die stryd tussen die ‘groot 4’, maar die Stones het nog nie die stryd gewonne gegee nie.

Herman’s Hermits maak hul debuut op die reeks, maar dit was een van vele gewilde liedjies wat deur hulle geskep is. Die week se liriek is van ‘n ander H.H.-treffer, ‘My sentimental friend’. Lekker sing, maar wees gewaarsku: Die refrein kan ‘n stem laat breek!

On the floor the people dance around

Moving close together

But there all alone in the corner

There’s the girl I once knew

Who broke me in two.

So won’t you please play a song

A sentimental song for my sentimental friend over there

We’ve been so long apart

Let it go right to the heart

Of my sentimental friend over there

Bring the tears to her eyes

Help to make her realize

The love we had was just beyond compare

Then if the time is right

Maybe I’ll hold her tight

My sentimental friend over there.

I recall the way she would feel

When she heard a sad song

Her teardrops would fall

And she’d tell me

She always want to be with me

(herhaal refrein 2X)

1. Forget the money – Connie Francis (3)

2. I need you – Ricky Nelson (1)

3. Do the clan – Elvis(5)

4. Under the boardwalk – Rolling Stones (2)

5. Shabby little hut – Bats (7)

6. Ticket to ride – Beatles (4)

7. The last time – Rolling Stones (nuut)

8. The Tennessee-yodel polka – Slim Whitmam & Virginia Lee

‘Forget the money’ is bo en dit in net die tweede week op die Hit Parade. Praat van meteoriese opgang!

Van die ‘Groot 4’ is Elvis die week bo, maar die Stones se 2 treffers tegelyk ewenaar wat net die Beatles tevore kon doen.

Slim Whitman en Virginia Lee as individue was nie onbekend in hul tyd nie.

Laasweek se glanstroue het my onwillekeurig aan die liedjie hieronder van Tommy Roe (beter bekend vir ‘Sweet Pea’) laat dink.

Hoorah for Hazel, she put me down

Hoorah for Hazel, she made me a clown

Hoorah for Hazel, she’s up to her tricks

Hoorah for Hazel, she’s getting her kicks.

Hazel’s been in love with many a guy

She tells them that she loves them, and then says goodbye

Hoorah for Hazel, I’m now on her list

I’m just another fool that couldn’t resist.

Hoorah for Hazel, …………

Hazel never feels any pity or shame

A broken heart is just a part of her evil fame

Hoorah for Hazel, she did it again

I’ll join the ranks of broken hearts that she put me in.

Hoorah for Hazel ……..

Hazel only does things she wants to do

She’s selfish and she’s spoiled, and she knows that she’s cute

Hoorah for Hazel, she still gets her way

But there’s a time a comin’ we’ll be able to say

Hoorah for Hazel, there’s tears in her eyes

Hoorah for Hazel, she knows how to cry

Hoorah for Hazel, she’s meek as a dove

Hoorah for Hazel, she’s begging for love

Hoorah for Hazel, there’s tears in her eyes

Hoorah for Hazel, she knows how to cry

8. I know a place – Petula Clark (5)

Terwyl ‘I need you’ vasklou aan die eerste plek, het ‘Stones’ ondersteuners die week stof in die ‘Beatles’ ondersteuners se oe geskop. Elvis, een van die ‘Groot 4’ is weer in die kompetisie terwyl Cliff uit die hit parade gedruk is. Connie Francis was bekend as die ‘Forces Favourite’. Sy het die ‘Yank’ troepe in hul basisse wereldwyd met haar sang vermaak. Die ‘Bats’, ‘n plaaslike groep maak ‘n derde verskyning op die Hit Parade. Soos aan Caro belowe is hierdie naweek se liriek nog ‘n Petula Clark-treffer:

Don’t sleep in the subway

You wander around on your own little cloud

 When you don’t see the why or the wherefore

You walk out on me when we both disagree

‘Cause to reason is not what you care for.

I’ve heard it all a million times before

Take off your coat, my love, and close the door.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darling

Don’t stand in the pouring rain

Don’t sleep in the subway, darling

The night is long

Forget your foolish pride

Nothing’s wrong

Now you’re beside me again.

You try to be smart, then you take it to heart

‘Cause it hurts when your ego’s deflated

You don’t realise that it’s all compromise

And the problems are so over rated.

Goodbye means nothing when it’s all for show

So why pretend you’ve somewhere else to go.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darling

Ek moes nou eers vir Skattebol op die stoep toemaak, sy wou saam tik. Nou kan sy saam met my kombuis toe gaan vir ‘n stukkie beskuit in koffie geweek.

8. The minute you’re gone – Cliff Richard (nuut)

Na slegs 3 weke op die Hit Parade was ‘I need you’ heelbo. Die Beatles het nog hul neus voor teen die Stones, terwyl nog een van die ‘Groot 4’ ook tot die stryd toegetree het. As ek die aap uit die mou mag laat, Elvis kom in die volgende week ook by. As liriek vir die naweek ‘I who have nothing’ van Shirley Bassy (was sy nie die sangeres van die tema-lied in die James Bond-fliek ‘Goldfinger’ nie?):

I, I who have nothing

I, I who have no-one

Adore you and want you so

I’m just a no-one with nothing to give you

But, oh, I love you.

He, he buys you diamonds

Bright, sparkling diamonds

But, believe me, dear, when I say

That he’ll never love you the way

I love you.

He can take you any place he wants

To fancy clubs and restaurants

But I can only watch you with

My nose pressed up against the window pane.

I, I who have nothing

I, I who have no-one

Must watch you go dancing by

Wrapped in the arms of somebody else

When, darling, it is I who love you.
