It was a B-side to a 1967 promotional single for the How Great Thou Art album.

But it's kind of a bogus choice, as it was never sold to the public.

Really ? When was that? If anything it would've been listed as double "A" side.

The 1950's;


"Santa Claus Is Back In Town"

"Treat Me Nice"
"Dontcha' Think It's Time"

The 1960's;

"Make Me Know It"
"I Feel So Bad"
"Witchcraft"

The 1970's;

"Loving Arms"
"For The Heart"
"Pledging My Love"

Above were all 'B' sides in the U.K. Sun singles were not realeased as such over here. If they had been Mystery Train would have been in the list, but over here that was an 'A' side.

These lists are all over the place!

A great many of the songs listed, while they may have been B sides outside the US, were A sides in the US: I forgot to remember to forget, Money honey, Santa Claus is back in town, I feel so bad, What'd I say, Ask me, Separate ways, I've got a thing about you baby, and Bringing it back.

A couple of the songs weren't issued on singles in the US, though they were issued as B sides elsewhere: Make me know it, Do not disturb).

And One track heart is a US promo B side at best, and Long lonely highway - a European A side - was neither a US release nor a B side.

On the positive side, we seem to agree on a lot of the same songs. Here are the top three in each decade by number of votes (so far):

1950s 8My baby left me
8Treat me nice
7I was the one

1960s 8Little sister
6Any day now
5A mess of blues

1970s 8Always on my mind
6Patch it up
6It's a matter of time

No sign of Fool. Yet.

I must say I really struggled with the 70s selections. He had some great A-sides and album tracks in that decade, but the B-sides were bloody awful!

"....and Long lonely highway - a European A side - was neither a US release nor a B side."
I may have forgotten, but Long Lonely Highway appeared as a US single c/w I'm Yours. I'm Yours went to no 11 on the Billboard singles charts if I'm not mistaken? :?:

50:
Treat Me Nice
I Got Stung
Doncha Think It's Time

60:
Fame And Fortune
Viva Las Vegas
Witchcraft

70:
For Ol' Time Sake
For The Heart
Pledging My Love
