Here's an oddity - in their homeland, both Steve Lawrence and the late Eydie Gorme had big solo hits that year which meant hardly anything in Britain...

...yet when they did a duet that year, it meant hardly anything in the US, but sold like hotcakes here!

It's the other way around, Howard. "He's so fine" came out in 1963 and 'My Sweet Lord" came out in late 1970.


"He's So Fine" is also renowned as the plaintiff song in the now-infamous plagiarism case against George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord".


They did sue and they won. The court found that Harrison had "subconsciously" copied the earlier tune, since he admitted to having been aware of the Chiffons' recording.

Released in August 1963, "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter from Camp)" is a Grammy Award-winning novelty song by Allan Sherman and Lou Busch, based on letters of complaint Allan received from his son Robert while Robert attended Camp Champlain in Westport, New York. The song is a parody that complains about the fictional "Camp Granada" and is set to the tune of Amilcare Ponchielli's "Dance of the Hours".

It was also a 1963 British hit for Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas, one of the first covers of a Beatles song (but not THE first - that honour goes to Kenny Lynch with 'Misery', which was originally offered to Helen Shapiro but her management rejected it)...

"Bad to Me" is a song John Lennon wrote (credited to Lennon–McCartney) for Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas while on holiday in Spain. Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas released their recording of the song in 1963 and it became their first number 1 in the UK Singles Chart. Paul McCartney was present during the recording session at Abbey Road Studios. The single would be released in the US the following year, and become a top-ten hit there, reaching number 9. It became one of the first occasions a Lennon–McCartney composition made the US Top 40 recorded by an artist other than the Beatles (the first being "A World Without Love" by Peter & Gordon).

The most popular version of the song in the United States was recorded by Patti Page, as the title song of her first album for Columbia Records. Page's record peaked only at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 but was more successful in Australia, continental Europe and in Asian territories such as Hong Kong and Japan.

"Little Boxes" is a protest song written and composed by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963.

The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia and associated conformist middle-class attitudes. It refers to suburban tract housing as "little boxes" of different colors "all made out of ticky-tacky", and which "all look just the same." "Ticky-tacky" is a reference to the shoddy material used in the construction of housing of that time.

My sister used this song in a slideshow of old family pics. We lived in a neighborhood with all the houses all the same. My dad enjoyed that slideshow in his last days. Carlos, on the other hand dislikes the song because he believes that those developments that went up after WWII (like the one we lived in) was a good thing. He thinks that those developments help build the middle class in the U.S.

The thing is about that old neighborhood of mine, it was a great place to grow up. Everyone knew everyone else. Today, most people from that neighborhood think of it with fondness.

Thank you that insight into the song. There were houses similar to these near to I was born, and colloquially there were called 'prefabs'. The residents were those who needed to be housed urgently by the local council.

"Puff, the Magic Dragon" is a song written by Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow, and made popular by Yarrow's group Peter, Paul and Mary in a 1963 recording. The song achieved great popularity. 
The authors of the song have repeatedly rejected this urban legend and have strongly and consistently denied that they intended any references to drug use. Peter Yarrow has frequently explained that the song is about the hardships of growing older and has no relationship to drug-taking. He has also said of the song that it "never had any meaning other than the obvious one" and is about the "loss of innocence in children", and dismissed the suggestion of association with drugs as "sloppy research".
