Issue #159 - Boss Jock Charlie Tuna and Stephanie Weber, one of the winners in the “ESP Jackpot” promotion.
Note that this chart calls the song "Sunshine of Your Life."I'd forgotten that the Boss 30 listed the Doors song by MORE than its record title, which is simply "Hello, I Love You.""Tell Someone You Love Them" by Dino, Desi and Billy is an unjustly forgotten gem. It's very much in the late '60s Beach Boys style and would have sounded right at home on the Boys' "Friends" album from this time.
I remember us kids thought "Sunshine Of Your Love" was the ultimate heavy record when it came out.According to Whitburn, early pressings of "Hello, I Love You" had the long title. I don't know what happened when it was Hitbound (Issue No. 154) as they had it listed as "Hello, I Think I Love You."
"Brown Eyed Woman" by Bill Medley debuted this week. I loved that song and really hoped it would hit No. 1. I thought it had a chance when it made it to No. 3 but that was as high as it got.
I thought "Sunshine of Your Love" was pretty heavy then, too. It was another of those records that refused to die, staying on the Boss 30 a long time for 1968.As for "Brown Eyed Woman," it's a great song. I remember my mom saying that the singer was speaking to a black woman, but since Medley SOUNDED black, I didn't realize (again, I was 10) what the big deal was. Later, of course, I learned about Medley and "blue-eyed soul," and the song now made a lot of sense to me."Hello, I Think I Love You." Jim Morrison, meet Keith Partridge.
