1961 Dragon yearbook
"Barbara" spent 32 years in the top 10 -- from 1927 until 1958. She enjoyed a run of 8 years (1937-1944) at #2, always playing second fiddle to Mary. Life has been a bit of a bouncy experience for her of late.
This song was finishing up an 8-week run in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 when the class of '61 graduated. (And Retiring Guy had just finished up a year in Mrs. Johnson's 5th grade class at Jefferson Street School.)
