The next song to go to the top of the record charts in 1967 was not a rock song. “Somethin’ Stupid” was written by C. Carson Parks who recorded it in 1966 with his wife, Gaile Foote. Their version went nowhere but Frank Sinatra heard the song and made it a hit with his daughter Nancy. This was the first and only time there was a father-daughter song to hit number one in the US.
“Somethin’ Stupid” was the top song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for four weeks, april 9 – May 6. On the Cash Box chart, it was the number one song for the week of April 9 – 15 and then again for the week of April 30 – May 6.
