This week in music: 1962

(KFVS) -

Let's take a trip down a musical memory lane. This morning we turn back the clock 53 years.

These were the songs being played on the radio this week in 1962.

Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 had Frank Ifield at number five with his yodeling version of "I Remember You."

The Crystals held down the number four spot with "He's a Rebel."

In the number three position was The Countours with "Do You Love Me." It was the only top 40 hit by The Countours and it showed up years later in the "Dirty Dancing" movie.

At number two was The Four Seasons with their hit first chart hit "Sherry." That song was originally titled "Jackie Baby" in honor of then first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

And in the top spot was a song you hear quite a bit this time of year.  It was a novelty song by Bobby Boris Picket and the Crypt-Kickers. "Monster Mash" had Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Wolfman and zombies all dancing this week in 1962.
