Best Song of 1968? 25 Miles by Edwin Starr

Just got off the phone with a Leo Alum Class of 1969 - we talked about 'tunes' that stuck. He catalogued some great one La-La-La by the Delfonics; I Thank You by Sam & Dave and Dance to the Music by Sly and the Family Stone.

Here is what passed for the top hits of 1968 -69.

1. Hey Jude Beatles
2. I Heard It Through The Grapevine Marvin Gaye
3. Love Is Blue Paul Mauriat
4. Honey Bobby Goldsboro
5. People Got To Be Free Rascals
6. (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay Otis Redding
7. This Guy's In Love With You Herb Alpert
8. Mrs. Robinson Simon & Garfunkel
9. Love Child Supremes
10. Judy In Disguise (With Glasses) John Fred & Playboy Band

Two out of ten - Otis and Marivin Gaye - Hey Jude? Number One? Love is Blue? Win The Future! Anything by Bobby Goldsboro????? Honey ????? The wife croaks. "See How Tree the Pig Has Flown! . . . " Where's my gun?

25 Miles Y'all! Much better than War - Good God, Lord!
