Top 10 this week in 1969

17 June 2021 – RESULTS UPDATE

Thanks for your responses to yesterday’s poll (below) about the Top 10 songs from this week in 1969.

A bit of a close one there… you seemed to like many of the songs. However, based on your comments,  first by just one vote was The Real Thing by Russell Morris. (Click the song names to hear them)

Equal second were Get Back by The Beatles and The Boxer by Simon & Garfunkel. Pretty close behind in equal 3rd place were Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In by The 5th Dimension and Proud Mary by CCR. And we’ll give an Honorable mention to The Israelites by Desmond Dekker and The Aces .

Thanks for taking part. We’ll select a Top 10 from another year next week and ask you again about your favourites.
