1. Flying On The Ground Is Wrong - Buffalo Springfield
2. What Am I Gonna Do With You (Hey Baby) - Leslie Gore
3. Carrie-Anne - The Hollies
4. Scarborough Fair/Canticle - Simon & Garfunkel
5. Twelve-Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming To The Canyon) - Mamas and the Papas

i could name SO many more songs. this was tough. (especially since i couldn't pick the who!!) "engine engine number 9' by roger miller almost made no. 5. 'nights in white satin' almost made no. 5. so did 'mountain of love' by johnny rivers. so did 'caroline, no' by the beach boys. so did 'el paso' by marty robbins. so did about 2 dozen others.

anyway, the first 4 just came quickly. stuff i really like. the 5th.... god! but it is what it is. the decade was too good to pick just 5.

All right, you're too easy to manipulate, so I'm through having fun and that's the only reason to continue the ripostes. Good luck and goodbye.

@Timothy Schubert:

You are, I fear, a real nutcase.

You contradict yourself with every sentence. You refer to the subject post as "a simple erroneous post" and then talk about "lack of knowledge", etc. and how "you tried to go back and add two other songs"....I didn't try....I DID to prevent you from having a heart attack.

Look, we've all been on these boards where someone gets a wrong date or a wrong album name and someone might mention the error to them. In this case, I didn't think of it as an error, but had it been one (eliminating the re-issue), would you have acted as assinine as you've already been? If so, why?

Bottom line....in looking back on it, if I had a choice between posting something in a way that a well known net musical site did or how you felt it should or shouldn't be, I'd take the site anyday of the week. Yes, you'd be trumped by rateyourmusic every time.

And I'm not picking scabs at all. I'm wondering just how these boards can help create grown men who seem proud of their education (?) and sound more and more like little kids who wanted to play but no one liked them so they got nasty.

I'm done. You bored me from the beginning but whenever I'm confronted with someone like you, I always think they'll come back to reality. For you, there is no reality, only dates and re-issues and other such specters you're so afraid of.....

I'll pass on the teacher who is a Joel fan....even she doesn't deserve you....

E. Dill, like a little boy picking at a scab, you keep coming back to it. I didn't call you what you deserved to be called for your initial post. It was a simply erroneous post. Yes, you tried to go back and add two other songs, but, it was your initial post that raised the specter of writing about something that you seemed to lack the knowledge about to post intelligently and correctly. Yes, tweaking you about it may have been a bit off-putting to you, but, the only way to avoid being off-putting upon occasion is to avoid entering the fray and I won't do that.

As for Billy Joel, my knowledge about him starts with when he was the original keyboard player, singer and main song-writer of The Hassles and goes on from their. Don't go there unless you really want to go there. If you do, bring it on. ;^)

I'll accept your self-described "smart aleck" as another version of snot. If this is what being a 50 year student of music got you, I feel sorry for your wasted efforts. Speaking of which, I know just the person who'd be a wonderful companion for you.

Do you know anything about Billy Joel?

Sorry, not a snot, just a smart aleck. I was just pointing up how ridiculous your original post was as a 50 year student of music in general and Rock and Roll in particular. To being a smart aleck, I will plead guilty.

Does rym's #5 single rating for 1962 PROVE anything one way or another. Not really. It doesn't prove or disprove that the single in question deserves to be listed as a 1962 single although it obviously was. They did it because they thought it did. So did I. You didn't.

@Timothy Schubert:

For a couple of posts, you actually had me believing I'd pegged you wrong.....that you were only interested in how popular those Berry songs actually were in 1962 out of curiosity. NOT. You are a snot like I'd originally surmised.

And I'll just bet when you wrote "that makes your inclusion of those songs as favorites of 1962 as utterly meaningless" you got all puffed up. Even considering the fact that since their inclusion on my list seemed to bother you so, I added two others to take their place. But no, you only wanted to know exactly where they were popular then.

You could care less how popular the songs were in 1962 and/or where. You were being a snot and you snotified your point extremely well just now.

And you're welcome, again.

I haven't a clue. My answer (excepting the Des Moines stuff) was only that the tunes were re-released in 1962.

Thank you, that makes your inclusion of those songs as favorites of 1962 utterly meaningless. By those criteria nearly any song from any year could be a favorite song from any other year just so long as it was re-released somewhere in that year. Today, Led Zeppelin's music is being re-released, again, on re-mastered CD's. Now, thanks to you, I an seemingly correct in saying that "Stairway To Heaven" is my favorite song of 2014. Thanks, again.

I haven't a clue. My answer (excepting the Des Moines stuff) was only that the tunes were re-released in 1962. That was enough for me to choose them. I surely didn't think I needed to prove sales to list a song as one of my favorites for the year. If the re-release wasn't enough, then I've already added two songs to take their place.

Now that I think of it, the numbers for those songs on Billboards Main Board for 1958 weren't exactly mindblowing. One was #29 and the other #73. By 1962, I believe Berry was already in jail for carrying a minor across state lines or some such thing. Whether that affected sales or Billboards wilingness to poll them is unknown to me. All I know is those two songs, originally on singles with different songs, were lumped together and re-released in 1962. That's that.

Tell me, E. Dill, where was "Johnny B. Goode" or, for that matter, "Sweet Little Sixteen" a hit in 1962? You never did answer that simple interrogatory. For instance, "Runaway", by Del Shannon was a hit in a number of cities in both 1961 and 1962. My initial query was, is, and shall remain a simple question that I was curious about. We can both drop the histrionics. Agreed?

Really? <<Where exactly was this a hit in 1962?>> It surely sounded a bit peevish to me but not ludicrous, so you trump me on insults.

Gee, and I even went out of my way to go back to the post and add two other faves to take the place of those "questionable" ones. And, frankly, if you thought about the re-release business, why oh why did you ask <<where exactly (!) was this a hit in 1962?>>

I thought Des Moines was a decent guess (and funny, too!). I think you need to lighten up. Otherwise, I'm going back to the kitchen, if I can find it.

Do you often believe you can read other's minds and determine their emotions from a simple question? I wasn't angry and no reasonable, intelligent person would have jumped to that ludicrous conclusion. My point was, simply, that sometimes songs are re-released and become hits a second time. Now, however, I am a bit peeved at your foolish conclusion about what I wrote. Lighten up, it's only Rock and Roll.
