    This is the way we used to do it all the time – here’s a playlist of hit singles that are celebrating their 50th anniversary since their debut on the pop charts.

    All of these songs date from an era when AM radio ruled, and pop stations played a wide variety of styles. All of these acts were struggling to retain relevance in an atmosphere where the Beatles seemingly owned the pop charts. Some fared better than others, but the songs live on.

    Featured tracks include;

    Wish Someone Would Care - Irma Thomas

    Goodbye Baby – Solomon Burke

    Memphis Tennessee – Johnny Rivers

    No Particular Place to Go – Chuck Berry

    Viva Las Vegas – Elvis Presley

    Bad to Me – Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas

    It’s Over – Roy Orbison

    Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying – Gerry & the Pacemakers

    My Boy Lollipop – Millie Small

    Do You Love Me – Dave Clark Five

    Every Little Bit Hurts – Brenda Holloway

    Just Like Romeo and Juliet – The Reflections
