The 10th of the 16 #1 singles in 1968 is Grazing In The Grass by Hugh Masekela which held the #1 slot for two weeks the weeks of July 20 and July 27. This was the last song that they recorded for the album and it only took a half hour- it was just filler and it went to #1. It was the second #1 song in 1968 that was an instrumental- the other being “Love Is Blue.” Before 1968 the last instrumental to go to #1 was “Telstar: by The Tornadoes in 1962. After “Grazing In The Grass” the final instrumental #1 of the 1960’s would be in 1969 Henry Mancini and His Orchestra “Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet.” This would also be another 1968 one-hit wonder- the only Top 40 hit in Hugh Masekela’s career. He passed away this January at the age of 78.
