Overview

Billboard Top Pop Hits: 1963 is one of the strongest volumes in the Billboard Top Pop Hits series, gathering sentimental ballads like the Cascades' "Rhythm of the Rain" and Bobby Vinton's classic "Blue Velvet"; surf instrumentals like the Surfaris' "Wipe Out" and the Chantays' "Pipeline"; and folk-pop hits like the Rooftop Singers' "Walk Right In" and Dale & Grace's "I'm Leaving It Up to You." The Jaynetts' excellent "Sally, Go 'Round the Roses" is another of the year's best singles (as well as one of its most popular) and novelties like the Singing Nun's "Dominique" and Kyu Sakamoto's "Sukiyaki" reflect the quirkiness of the pop charts during the '60s. Though it's a little too eclectic to be a cohesive album, the collection nevertheless reaffirms how good a year 1963 was for all kinds of pop music.
