#179. “Idaho”- The Four Seasons. Philips. Pop. Written by Bob Gaudio and Jake Holmes. B-side: “Something’s On Her Mind”- which peaked at #98 a few weeks earlier. The Four Seasons would be heard from again in the 1970’s but in the late 60’s they just weren’t made for the times.  This song is awful. “Idaho” #95 and spent 2 weeks in the Hot 100. Grade: D-

181. “The Boxer”- Simon and Garfunkel. Columbia. Pop. Written by Paul Simon. B-side “Baby Driver.” Probably my favorite song from Simon and Garfunkel. They had 3 #1’s in their career- “The Sound Of Silence” 1965, “Mrs. Robinson” 1968 and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” 1970. As a duo they had a short career- 5 albums- 19 singles in the Hot 100 with 16 of those making the Top 40. “The Boxer” peaked at #7 and spent 10 weeks on the chart. Grade: A+
