'Rhonda' experienced a big boost in popularity when this actress, born Marilyn Louis, started making a name for herself in Hollywood. She enjoyed her best years in the 1950s and 60s, peaking at #37 in 1965, the year the Beach Boys scored a #1 hit with this song.
"Help Me Rhonda" made its debut at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending April 17, 1965. It spent two weeks at the top and a total of 14 weeks on the chart.
