gold: 'breakfast in bed'
- stunning.

silver: 'then i kissed her'
- right, it's ok, innit.
way down list of favouritest bb covers.

bronze: 'can i get you know you better'
- not too sure of the added high voices.
not too sure about the strum strum strum middle eight.
too similar to a deliberate 'pet sounds' stylee copy
(which is a worthy, notable nod in itself)
and several other contemporary productions.
certainly of its time,
not one of their bestest.

tin: 'kiss me goodbye'
- petu la clark,
(as my mum and french / belgians would say).
always enjoyed her since childhood still have 'the'little blue man' single)
so pleased to have seen her perform live last year at cropredy festival
(where bw headlined this year).
luvverly voice (a bit over-enunciated on this occasion).
some luvverly elements to the arrangement.
lousy song,
otherwise it'd be way up higher.

Spinning the, the votes this week we get
Gold - The Beach Boys -Then I Kissed Her
Silver - Petula Clark - Kiss Me Goodbye
Bronze - The a Turtles - Can I Get to Know You Better
Tin - Dusty Springfield - Breakfast in Bed

The Everly Brothers had the kissing thing going just as the 60's broke:

Nice week, Bonnie

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 . . .”

Thanks very much to paul and Deb for the final votes this week.  We got into double figures.  This is a small achievement these days.

After a close battle, the Turtles dropped back and kissed the Beach boys ass, which was rather appropriate for a kissing week.

GOLD went to the boys, with a total of 44 points.

SILVER to the Turtles, who took off like a hare, had a hair's breadth in it in the middle of the week, and here they are, in second place with 38 points.

BRONZE to Dusty, with a grand total of 27 points and quite a bit of cleaning up to do after that guy leaves.

And TIN to Petula with 21 points, who probably has the sweetest kiss of all, but not in the eyes of this esteemed community, who really did kiss her goodbye.

A total of 13 voters.  Cripes.

I'll SWAK you all too - even though it sounds painful - and look forward to Darren's analysis of the week (which I always enjoy, by the way).

Take 'em away, t!

Well done, bonnie.

‘Then I Kissed Her’ is the ninth track from Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!) to be used.

Its record:

Amusement Parks U.S.A. (a Silver in Week 15 of Season III, 10th in Silver Play-Off - Roy Roger Bridge),

Then I Kissed Her (a Gold in Week 26 of Season IX - bonnie bella),

Salt Lake City (a Gold in Week 10 of Season II, 10th in Gold Play-Off - Gordon Higgins),

Girl Don’t Tell Me (a Gold in Week 39 of Season III - Jo McGuire; a Silver in Week 20 of Season IV - t Bedford),

Help Me, Rhonda (a Gold in Week 7 of Season VII, 3rd in Preliminary Final, 8th in Gold Play-Off - BrianFan),

California Girls (a Gold in Week 26 of Season III, 1st in Preliminary Final, 3rd (annual Bronze) in Gold Play-Off  - Kevin Witts; a Gold in Week 1 of Season VIII - Cindy Hood),

‘The Little Girl I Once Knew’, included as a bonus track in the 2001 two-fer release of the album, won a Gold in Week 26 of Season II and finished 3rd (annual Bronze) in the Gold Play-Off (Verden McCutcheon).

‘California Girls’ also came 4th in the Ultimate Battle, held at the completion of our first five seasons, involving all annual place getters. That was easily the highest ranking for a song that has never been an annual Gold winner.

It was the seventh Battle entry for the Turtles.

Their record:

Let Me Be (a Bronze in Week 20 of Season IV - t Bedford),
Elenore (a Gold in Week 30 of Season VIII - dkmh),
Can I Get to Know You Better (a Silver in Week 26 of Season IX - bonnie bella)

It was the fourth appearance for Dusty Springfield in the Battle.

Her record:

Son of a Preacher Man (a Gold in Week 4 of Season IV, 4th in Preliminary Final - Peter Simpson),
I Only Want to Be With You (a Gold in Week 10 of Season VIII - Cindy Hood),
Stay Awhile (a Silver in Week 7 of Season IX - t Bedford),
Breakfast in Bed (a Bronze in Week 26 of Season IX - bonnie bella)

Please continue to support our hosts.

I think I'm too late ...

Gold - Kiss Me Goodbye (Petula Clark).  When I listened sounded better than what my memory recalled. Nice.
Silver - Then I Kissed Her (Beach Boys)
Bronze - Breakfast In Bed (Dusty).  Hadn't heard this.  Great album from all reports. Haven't listened thru but Son Of A Preacher Man was great
Tin - Turtles song ... whatever that was.  Good singing but for me not a memorable song.
