1st July 1967

2 weeks on top for Nancy Sinatra, as Jackson foe Nancy & Lee goes up to 28, as an alternate version (probably more famous) by Johnny Cash & wife June Carter enters at 75, and also as My Elusive Dreams enters for Tammy Wynette & David Houston, another country standard – the Nancy & Lee version from 1968 is the definitive version, though it’s close-run with the Tammy Wynette & George Jones 1973 version (husband & wife, slowed down a la Nancy & Lee, and with real emotion). 3,731 more words
