Hi Duckie

Right you are. I saw Anthony Newly in Stop The World, I Want To Get Off. It was in my ushering days. Saw lots of Broadway shows (on tour), the Minneapolis Symphony, The Met
(on tour also), folks singers, Russian Folk Dancers, etc.

Frank Sinatra recorded almost everything. Richard Kiley was the star of Man of La Mancha. When I saw it Jose Ferrar was the star. Didn't really have a great voice, but it got a big hand anyway.

42 is Allan Sherman. The melody is from an opera.
44 is Jiminy Cricket. The voice was provided by Cliff Edwards. In the days when I had a
huge record collection, I had an album by Cliff. Among other things he sang Tiptoe
Through the Tulips. (And much better than Tiny Tim.)

46 is Bing Crosby.

43 was Miss Peggy Lee
45 was Harry Belafonte, most commonly known for Day-O (The Banana Boat Song). At the time, "Matilda!" held a record for the longest at the #1 billboard spot.

Thurl Ravenscroft also did the voice of the Russian cat in Disney's "The Aristocats."

Patti, I never heard of The Long and Winding Road. I was not a big Beatles fan. I looked
up the song. Read it was their 20th (and last) number one hit.

I think these two are still unguessed.

39 Honey. Bobby Goldsboro. I lived the year 1968 in Las Vegas. Seems like almost the
entire year this song was on the radio along with various hits by Glen Campbell.

40 The Man That Got Away. Judy Garland. She sang it in A Star is Born and on her TV
show. One of the writers was Harold Arlen, Judy's favorite composer. He wrote the songs
for The Wizard of Oz.
______________________

54 Debbie Reynolds. I first heard this song in 1958 while riding in a car with a couple other
kids. We were on our way to St. Paul to register for college. They played the song every 20
minutes. I thought it was great; still do. John Gary also did a wonderful version.

59 Tennessee Ernie Ford.
60 Johnny Cash and June Carter according to legend. However, I read a few years ago June
actually wrote it with another c-w songwriter named Merle Kilgore. He had other hits with
Wolverton Mountain and Johnny Reb.

Rock, You got 54, 59 and 60 correct! I first heard the song Tammy in the movie. Then, received 2 copies of the 'single' for my 17th birthday. Everyone knew how much I liked that song! GB

Paul McCartney And Wings later covered The Long And Winding Road. Can't remember if it was that song or another one of theirs over which there was a protracted dispute on who "owned" the rights to the song.

55 is Perry Como. Later covered by Roberta Flack and others.
56 is also Perry Como, but also Frank Sinatra.
58 The Carpenters is most commonly known. Believe it or not, Perry Como covered this one as well!

Duckie, Perry Como really got around! lol

I also remember Tie a Yellow Ribbon by Tony Orlando and Dawn. I think I had it on an 8 track tape! Really a long time ago.

My favorite was Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flack. GB

Very good, Duckie. I saw the New Christy Minstrels at our school. The only famous people
who ever performed there. At least when I was a student. The tall skinny guy who played the
double bass was Clarence Treat. Decades later I played bridge with a fellow who had had
Clarence as a High School teacher.

Who sang and wrote these?

66 Calypso
67 If You Knew Susie

68 Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show
69 The Circle Game

70 Happy Trails To You
71 Blowing In The Wind
