" Muskrat love----'...is extremely polarizing, and music lovers have very strong opinions about the song---either you love it or you hate it.' MY BOY LOLLIPOP was kept from the #1 spot by I GET AROUND, by the Beach Boys. Millie Small never hit the top 30 again." " ROSE GARDEN rose to #3 in '71. It was written by Joe South, and sung by Lynn Anderson. She briefly became the darling of the variety show circuit." " WHO'S SORRY NOW charted #4 for Connie Francis in '58. She was about to be let go by her record company. Fifteen years later, Marie Osmond brought the song back into the top 40, albeit only briefly. In 1946, the song was included on the soundrack for the Marx Brothers film, A NIGHT IN CASABLANCA." "CAT'S IN THE CRADLE: began as a poem by Harry Chapin's wife, Sandy. it was produced by a former member of the group Steam. the song inspired an episode of CSI, that of April 25, 2002." " HELLO MARY LOU, a huge hit for Ricky Nelson, was composed by Gene Pitney. After this one, Rick dropped the 'y' from his first name." " HERE YOU COME, AGAIN was Dolly Parton's first crossover hit, and was written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill." " YOU BELONG TO ME soared to #1 for Jo Stafford, and she began a tv variety show, as a result, in '54. It was written by Pee Wee King, Chilton Price and Redd Stewart."
