1950's Top Hits

IN THE 1950'S...THESE WERE #1!!
February, 1955 / 'Hearts Of Stone' - Fontane Sisters, 'Sincerely' - McGuire Sisters
February, 1956 / 'Memories Are Made of This' - Dean Martin, 'Rock & Roll Waltz' - Kay Starr, 'The Great Pretender' - Platters, 'Lisbon Antigua' - Nelson Riddle
February, 1957 / 'Singing The Blues' - Guy Mitchell, 'Too Much' - Elvis Presley, 'Don't Forbid Me' - Pat Boone, 'Young Love' - Tab Hunter, 'Young Love' - Sonny James
February, 1958 / 'At The Hop' -Danny & the Juniors, 'Don't' - Elvis Presley, 'Sugartime' - McGuire Sisters, 'Get A Job' - Silhouettes
February, 1959 / 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes' - Platters, 'Stagger Lee' - Lloyd Price

Both of the '55 #1's were covers of R&B originals. 'Hearts Of Stone' was originally recorded by the Charms, and 'Sincerely' by the Moonglows.

Tab Hunter and Sonny James actually shared the top spot with their versions of 'Young Love', probably because the arrangements were so identical that record buyers couldn't tell which was which.

1959 was to be THE YEAR for Lloyd Price, as later in '59, he'd add another #1 with 'Personality'.
