George Gilbert always used to say that the compilation of the WARM survey sheets consisted of a poll of local record shops, consultation with the national charts and listener preferences. He also used to say that in picking music for a top 40 radio station, "With the Beatles you could never go wrong". 
In this WARM survey which features "Little" Joey Shaver the Beatles were of course in firm place at number one with their double side hit "Nowhere Man/What Goes On". 

But I call your attention to the chart songs numbered 30, 31 and 32. 
Number 30 was "Bang Bang" by Cher where she shot her baby down. 

Number 31 was "Husbands and Wives" by Roger Miller about marriage issues.    
 Number 32 was Elvis Presley's version of the classic "Frankie and Johnny".
Was this pattern by accident? Coincidence or not???
