Listen to a random radio shuffle of the top fifteen.
This was a pretty solid week for the charts, with "I Got You Babe" at the top, future classics by the Beatles, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, Phil Spector, Burt Bacharach, and Motown all in the top ten and Bob Dylan and James Brown both cracking the top fifteen with bullets.
It was a great week to be alive, and an even better week to be born.
