Feel older now, feel like making a musical line graph

I've picked my 3 favorite songs out of the 23 that debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending March 19, 1966.

"Kicks", written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, was the first of 4 songs by Paul Revere and the Raiders to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

The Yardbirds scored their 4th top 20 hit in a row with "Shapes of Things".

"I Can't Let Go" is the Hollies' follow-up to "Look Through Any Window", neither of which, curiously, make a big impact chart-wise.  Their next single, however, reached the top 10 and put them in the spotlight, center-stage.
