This weeks theme is...Ramp Up The Red
Inspired by British Heart Foundation's 'Ramp Up The Red' day - celebrate this Friday (7th Feb) by wearing your favourite red outfit to help raise awareness of heart disease.

1. Ruby Baby by Dion

This one's for my lovely friend M - she'll know why!
'Ruby Baby' entered the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1962 reaching Number 2.

2. Red Sails in the Sunset by The Platters

Originally a tune from the 1930s, The Platters were just one of many artists to cover this song.
'Red Sails in the Sunset' entered the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1960 reaching Number 36. 

3. Red River Rock by Johnny and the Hurricanes

A traditional American song vamped up for the rock 'n' roll era!
'Red River Rock' entered the chart on 9th October 1959 reaching Number 3.
Happy listening!
