Well done, t.

They’re in the book.


It was the second time around for ‘Good to My Baby’.

It also won the Gold in Week 24 of Season VII (Larry Franz).

Its scores that week were 55.5 points and 27.75% from 20 voters.

This week, it scored 45 and 32.14 from 14 voters.

'Bull Session With Big Daddy' remains the only track from The Beach Boys Today! not to have been used yet. (C’mon, hosts. Get it together!)

There have been eight Golds, five Silvers and one Bronze.

The most popular song has proven to be 'Kiss Me Baby'.


The record:

Do You Wanna Dance? (a Gold in Week 9 of Season III - Verden McCutcheon; a Silver in Week 10 of Season VIII, 3rd in Silver Play-Off - Cindy Hood),

Good to My Baby (a Gold in Week 24 of Season VII - Larry Franz; a Gold in Week 27 of Season IX - t Bedford),

Don't Hurt My Little Sister (a Bronze in Week 3 of Season VI - t Bedford),

When I Grow Up (To Be a Man) (a Silver in Week 34 of Season I - t Bedford; a Gold in Week 24 of Season VI - t Bedford),  

Help Me, Ronda (a Silver in Week 21 of Season II - David Wilson),

Dance, Dance, Dance (a Gold in Week 13 of Season I - Prodigal Son),

Please Let Me Wonder (a Gold in Week 39 of Season I - Roy Roger Bridge; a Gold in Week 42 of Season IX - Al Forsyth),

I'm So Young (a Silver in Week 35 of Season III, 9th in Silver Play-Off - Sue Schlichter),

Kiss Me Baby (a Gold in Week 1 of Season I, 1st in Preliminary Final, 5th in Gold Play-Off - Wow! Great Concert!),

She Knows Me Too Well (a Silver in Week 42 of Season I - Darren J. Ray),

In the Back of My Mind (a Silver in Week 42 of Season VI - bonnie bella)  


A live version of 'Dance, Dance, Dance' also won a Silver in Week 17 of Season III (t Bedford).


It was the second appearance for Dion and his first with the Belmonts.

‘The Wanderer’ won the Silver in Week 37 of Season V (snoops71) and finished 4th in the Silver Play-Off.


This was the third time around for the Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers version of ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love’ and its worst showing.

Its record:
- a Silver in Week 2 of Season II (62 points, 29.52% from 21 voters), 7th in Silver Play-Off (Al Forsyth),
- a Silver in Week 5 of Season VIII (59 points, 31.05% from 19 voters), 6th in Silver Play-Off (Lee Marshall),
- a Tin in Week 27 of Season IX (30 points, 21.43% from 14 voters) (t Bedford)

The song itself has now appeared seven times. The other results are:

The Beach Boys 1964 version
- a Silver in Week 7 of Season III (Gordon Higgins)

The Beach Boys 1964 version (stereo), released in 2009
- a Gold in Week 5 of Season VIII (Lee Marshall)

The Benn Zeppa with The Four Jacks 1956 version
- a Bronze in Week 5 of Season VIII (Lee Marshall)

The Four Seasons 1963 version

It is an outside chance of making this year’s Tin Play-Off.

Hey, John B. 


'She Knows Me Too Well' was narrowly beaten by 'Woman' (John Lennon). 

Week 42 (Season I)
Gold - Woman (John Lennon - 1980) (57.5)


Silver - She Knows Me Too Well (The Beach Boys - 1964) (55)
Bronze - Wichita Lineman (Glen Campbell - 1968) (41)
Tin - Castles In the Air (Don McLean - 1981) (36.5)
(Darren J. Ray)


It was 'Help Me, Ronda', the original incarnation. 

Week 21 (Season II)
Gold - Bernadette (Four Tops - 1967) (42.5)

Silver - Help Me, Ronda (The Beach Boys - 1965) (42)
Bronze - Do You Love Me (The Contours - 1962) (37.5)
Tin - (The Best Part of) Breakin' Up (The Ronettes - 1964) (28)
(David Wilson)


None of those eight songs made play-offs. 

'Wichita Lineman' was used again in Week 21 of Season V (Jo McGuire) and won the Gold. (All the songs that week made play-offs; only one of three weeks to ever achieve this.) 

It finished 6th in the Preliminary Final. 


'Help Me, Rhonda' won the Gold in Week 7 of Season VII (BrianFan). 

It came 3rd in the Preliminary Final, beaten by 'You Still Believe in Me' and 'Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)'. 

It then came 8th in the Gold Play-Off, behind 'Surf's Up' (The Smile Sessions version), 'Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)', 'You Still Believe in Me', 'Lay Down Burden', 'If I Fell' (The Beatles), 'Cabin Essence' (The Smile Sessions version) and 'This Whole World'.
