Retirement '03

Nothing I recognize by artists I mostly never listened to.

High school, late ‘64, You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’, The Righteous Brothers

Not sure where people are pulling values, because isn’t Billboard’s No.1 hit a weekly thing?

Yes; I just selected the Nr 1 hit of the week closest to the date I ref’d.
