This week in music: 1964

(KFVS) -

Let's take a stroll down our musical memory lane.

This morning we turn back the clock to 1964.

Some of the headlines from that year. Lyndon Johnson defeated Barry Goldwater in the race for President.

The Cardinals unexpectedly won the National League Pennant and went on to defeat the Yankees in the World Series.

And this week 51 years ago these were the songs atop the Billboard music charts.

At number five was The Animals with "House of the Rising Sun."

The Drifters were settled in at number four with "Under The Boardwalk."

The Beatles checked in at number three with the title song from their hit movie "A Hard Day's Night."

Dean Martin was at number two with one of his signature songs, "Everybody Loves Somebody."

And in the top spot, "Where Did Our Love Go." It was the very first number one single by The Supremes. The Motown group would top the charts 11 more times before Diana Ross left for a solo career in 1970.
