The Top 100 Songs of 1965: #20-11

We have heard 80 great songs in The Top 100 Songs of 1965*, leaving 20 more:


  Mr. Tambourine Man

At #20, this incredible song written by Bob Dylan that got the Byrds off the ground and got David Crosby his start in the biz.


  Come See About Me

This one was smack dab in the middle of the Supremes' record-breaking run of five consecutive #1 songs.  The record held for 14 years until the Bee Gees topped it with six consecutive #1's in 1979.


  Back In My Arms Again

The group that started out as the Primettes, with another winner.


   Crying In The Chapel
Elvis Presley

Elvis landed a Platinum-selling song with this one, his first Top 10 song in two years.  But after this smash, he would go another four years before he managed another.

Help Me Rhonda
Beach Boys

The song at #16 represents this California supergroup at their peak--they registered 10 Top 10 songs in the three-year period from 1964-1966.  

My Girl

Here's the greatest song in the powerful collection of Temptations songs.


I Got You Babe
  Sonny & Cher

At #14, this #1 smash by an unlikely combination, both as singing partners and marriage partners.

Stop!  In The Name Of Love

Powerful lyrics here from the magical team of Holland-Dozier-Holland.


Unchained Melody
Righteous Brothers

As time goes on, this song has become more and more popular, leading to its inclusion in The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*.

Petula Clark

Just outside The Top 10 for 1965*, this great song from one of Britain's favorite ladies ever.
