Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

CFUN Soundathons were always a great way to honour pop/rock hits from years past, while preparing for the new musical treasures of the next 12 months. And Wanda Jackson got the No. 9 spot...you go, girl!

Cumulatively, Elvis racked up the overall numbers on this Soundathon. But he only placed four in the Top 50 with only one in the Top 10. Kids already sensed that The King, after the army stint, was eschewing genuine rock for comfortable exile in Hollywood. The empty stage was almost set for the British Invasion.
