On March 7th, 1960, "Theme From a Summer Place" was in its third week of a nine week run in the top Billboard spot. It would be Billboard's #1 song of 1960. The movie was released in 1959 and starred Richard Egan, Dorothy McGuire, Troy Donahue and Sandra Dee. "Teen Angel" and "Running Bear" were former #1 records still in the top twenty.
The March 7th chart had several runner-ups on the list. "He'll Have To Go," "Handy Man," "Wild One," and "Puppy Love" were all songs that stalled at #2.
Several artists had their biggest successes in March of 1960. Brook Benton and Dinah Washington had each had success as solo performers. They produced a hit together with "Baby, You've Got What It Takes" which would peak at #5 a few weeks later. Bobby Rydell's "Wild One" was his highest ranked record (#2 on 3/28). And the Little Dippers were a "one-hit-wonder" as "Forever" would be their only top forty entry.
"Where or When" was on its way off the charts. It was the highest ranking record for Dion & The Belmonts -- Dion would split with the group the next October.
