    Because, WKNY is doing a Top 15 countdown where Warren Lawrence counts down the 15 biggest hits from each and every week. And speaking of which, I will be posting it somewhere on the “Everything Else” board in which I will be moving it later this week.

    In the meantime, this is going to be my last post on this board, the top 15 songs from this week in 1963. Once again, Any chart-mixups and extended remixes, I’ll let you know. Here are the rundowns:
