At number 5, :"Sloop John B" by the Beach Boys.

Paul Revere and The Raiders held down the number 4 spot with their anti-drug song "Kicks."

A song that many people thought promoted drug use was at number three. Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Woman #12 & 35" which had the lyric "Everybody must get stoned."

In the number 2 spot "Good Lovin'" by The Young Rascals.

Topping the charts, the only number one hit for The Mamas & The Papas. Written by John Phillips, "Monday Monday" spent three weeks in the top spot.
