Top 100 Singles of 1967 in Canada

the box tops the letter neon rainbowAccording to RPM magazine, the biggest song of 1967 in Canada was “The Letter” by The Box Tops. Ironically, despite the year being Canada’s centennial anniversary, only one Canadian song appeared on the year-end Top 100, which was “Canada” by The Young Canada Singers. This has been bolded in red in the chart below. CanCon regulations were to be introduced three years later. The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from nationwide sales and radio airplay data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years. More year-end and other Canadian charts can be found here.
