D.A.N. -- thanks for your votes. We're now up to 13 with about 13 hours left.

Lucky for some.

I had hotel room 1313 recently - must have been July as it wasn't long before a Friday the 13th. 

I thought I had used this song in Season 2 (should've as I was certainly considering it) but the records show it was their other"World" one.

it all disappeared (internet wonky!)
in : 'walkin' after midnight'
- (shouldn't be typign after midnight?).
pure class.

silver: ' I go to pieces'
- a forgotten pop hit.
i'd expected it to be a fiver of the pasty clone
(?predyktif txt!) number.
it wasn't.
but it's a good pop hit.

bronze: 'maybe i know'
- previously unknown to me.
currently like it.

tin: 'in the parkin' lot"
- is it permitted to place a bb song in last place here?
i just did.
not unpleasant, but mere filler...

I had just too much going on right now to pay justice to this excellent battle. I hope to have more time soon, but...
This week's songs are all favorites that take me back and away for awhile, thanks.
Had some initial trouble getting the vids to play but on second try they worked fine. Wierd!

Gold - The Beach Boys -- "In the Parkin' Lot" , Brian's musical skills bustin' out.
Silver - Peter and Gordon -- "I Go To Pieces", loved Tom's latter day video!
Bronze - Patsy Cline -- "Walkin' After Midnight", surprised this is the first Patsy Cline in the battle. I have a history with the song "Crazy", again posted by Tom
Tin - Lesley Gore -- "Maybe I Know", sad to vote this last.

Lot's of times I'll think "this would be a good song for the BOTBs" and then it flies right out of my head and I forget. So sometimes I write it down. But then I lose the paper.

Great vids, y'all!
bonnie, bring that Denny week on!

I try hard to be strong
But sometimes I fail myself
And after all I've promised you
So faithfully
You still believe in me
I wanna cry . . .”

All right! Thanks to this possibly final burst of activity from Tom (with all those favorites), paul & Deb, we're at 17 voters (four more than lucky 13). The final scores should be arriving any day now, but there's still time to slip in under the wire.

paul -- sorry to see your golden prose disappeared. Typin' After Midnight can be dangerous, even Crazy.

Ain't that the truth. I'd love to use "Anyway You Want It" one day, which I prefer to "Glad All Over". That one beat the Beatles' "Getting Better" for gold by a very slim margin a long time ago. 

The Dave Clark Five -- "Anyway You Want It" (try not to wake up the neighbors)

We had a close battle for 1st place and 3rd place all week. Thanks to everyone who participated, especially those who shared some favorite songs that might be in the battle one day (or not) or maybe already were.

The final scores, with 17 voters for 170 points.

Gold -- Peter & Gordon, "I Go To Pieces" -- 51 points (6, 6, 4, 1)

Silver -- Patsy Cline, "Walkin' After Midnight" -- 49 points (7, 4, 3, 3) 

Bronze -- The Beach Boys, "In the Parkin' Lot" -- 35 points (3, 2, 5, 7)

Tin -- Lesley Gore, "Maybe I Know" -- also 35 points, but fewer golds (1, 5, 5, 6)

Well done, Larry.

‘I Go to Pieces’ is the second Peter & Gordon song to be used in the Battle.

‘Lady Godiva’ won the Tin in Week 14 of Season IV (Cindy Hood).

This week, five of their six Golds were from the eight American voters (plus two Silvers and one Bronze). Only two Brits voted - David gave it its solitary Tin, and Paul gave it his Silver.

‘In the Parkin’ Lot’ is the tenth track (of 15) from Shut Down Volume 2 (the two-fer issue) to be used.

Its record:

Fun, Fun, Fun (stereo) (a Gold in Week 15 of Season IV, 3rd (annual Bronze) in Gold Play-Off13th in the Ultimate Battle - Kevin Witts),

Don't Worry Baby (a Gold in Week 6 of Season III, 2nd (annual Silver) in Gold Play-Off5th in the Ultimate Battle - Teenage Symphony; a Gold in Week 15 of Season VI, 1st (annual Gold) in Gold Play-Off - Cindy Hood),

In the Parkin’ Lot (a Bronze in Week 29 of Season IX - Larry Franz),

The Warmth of the Sun (a Gold in Week 7 of Season I, 2nd (annual Silver) in Gold Play-Off9th in the Ultimate Battle - Tom Tobben; a Silver in Week 10 of Season V, 1st in Silver Play-Off, 1st in Preliminary Final, 2nd (annual Silver) in Gold Play-Off9th in the Ultimate Battle - Jo McGuire); a Gold in Week 2 of Season IX (Larry Franz) *,

This Car of Mine (a Bronze in Week 1 of Season V - Larry Franz),

Why Do Fools Fall in Love (a Silver in Week 7 of Season III - Gordon Higgins) **,

Keep an Eye on Summer (a Gold in Week 15 of Season VIII - Lee Marshall),

Fun, Fun, Fun (mono - single version) (a Gold in Week 6 of Season V, 4th in Gold Play-Off - Deb#1; a Gold in Week 11 of Season VIII, 2nd in Silver Play-Off, 3rd (annual Bronze) in Gold Play-Off - t Bedford),

In My Room (German version) (a Silver in Week 39 of Season VII - t Bedford),

I Do (a Tin in Week 12 of Season I, 1st in Tin Play-Off - Prodigal Son)

* still in contention

** The 2009 stereo release of the 1964 recording with the previously unreleased intro won a Gold in Week 5 of Season VIII (Lee Marshall)

‘Maybe I Know’ is just the second Lesley Gore song to be used.

‘California Nights’ won the Tin in Week 41 of Season II (Miriam Wilsen). (Lee, you gave it one of the two Golds it received that week from 16 voters. The other was from Paul Adsett.)

Both ‘Walkin’ After Midnight’ (Silver) and ‘Maybe I Know’ (Tin) are borderline chances of making their play-offs.
