Introduction

Here are the weekly rankings of Patsy Cline's Cash Box Top 100 Pop hits. The Cash Box results diverge from the Billboard standings on occasion. “She's Got You” was Patsy's strongest hit on Cash Box, peaking at #11 on March 17, 1962. “I Fall To Pieces” stayed for 20 weeks, and ranked #96 on the Year End Singles Chart of 1961. "Crazy" was Cline's fastest bullet on this chart, debuting at #66. “Imagine That” hit the chart one week before its front side “When I Get Thru With You”, which bulleted to #69 the following week, overtaking “Imagine That” at its slower climb.

Billboard hits that did not make Cash Box Pop include “A Poor Man's Roses”, “Faded Love”, “When You Need A Laugh” and “He Called Me Baby”, although two songs peaked higher on Cash Box: “Heartaches” (#65 Cash Box vs. #73 Billboard), and “You're Stronger Than Me” (#95 Cash Box vs. #103 Billboard).
