The next song to hit the top of the record charts in 1967 was “Never My Love” by The Association. The group was having a good year as “Windy” was still being played on the air at that time. According to BMI, who keeps track of royalties on music, “Never My Love” was the second most played song on radio and TV in the 20th century.
The song was written for the group by Don and Dick Addrisi. It has been recorded by many other artists over the years including by the writers in 1977.
“Never My Love” was the #1 song on the Cash Box record chart for just the week of Oct. 8 – 14. Om the Billboard Hot 100 chart it never got to the top. It did manage to go to the #2 spot for two weeks (Oct. 1 – 14).
