Today on the iHeartRadio Top 6 at 6, I'm counting down the top six songs from this week in 1965!
"Hang on Sloopy" by The McCoys hit #1 on October 2, 1965 before falling to #2, behind The Beatles' "Yesterday" this week in 1965.
Written by Wes Farrell and Bert Russell, the song is named for singer Dorothy Sloop, who used the name "Sloopy" on stage.
It's also the official rock song of the state of Ohio and The Ohio State University.
