Biggest Hit Singles in 1960 – Highest position in U.S & U.K Charts

1- Elvis Presley – It’s Now Or Never

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

2- Elvis Presley  – Are You Lonesome Tonight?

Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you
But I’d rather go on hearing your lies
Than I go on living without you

3- Chubby Checker – The Twist

My daddy is sleepin’ and mama ain’t around
Yeah daddy is sleepin’ and mama ain’t around
We’re gonna twisty twisty twisty
‘Til we turn the house down

4- The Drifters – Save the Last Dance For Me

Oh, I know that the music’s fine
Like sparkling wine go and have your fun
Laugh and sing but while we’re apart
Don’t give your heart to anyone

5- Johnny Preston – Running Bear

On the bank of the river stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be
