1962 Hall of Songs Nominees: Beatles, Four Seasons, Ray Charles, and More!

 1962 is a weird year in music. "The Twist" comes back early in the year, and some jazz musicians bring Brazilian bossa nova to America around the holidays. In between, it's a whole lot of everything on the charts with some impressive leaps forward.  Among our 1962 nominees are three instrumentals, two songs from arguably the first true effort at a cohesive album, and recordings by self-contained groups that could sing and play instruments. You've definitely heard of them both. Go to hallofsongs.com to vote for your picks for our song hall of fame.
