    A song I hadn't heard before- but shortly thereafter, it was Chuck Berry's My Ding a Ling

  2. The first song that I can recall (my Dad had the 45) from a bit later in my birth year.

    I didn't think to look up my wife's. She got a better one than me, too!

    Well the year started out with John Lennon which is pretty good and it ended with Olivia Newton John and her Let's Get Physical single. :-(

    No idea. Couldn't hear the radio above all the racket in the hospital.

    Johnny Mercer and The Pied Pipers. The more popular version by Lloyd Price wasn't released until thirteen years later.
    This was in the American charts, the British charts didn't start until 1952.
    There was, however, a compilation of the most popular sheet music bought, which at the time of my birth suggests:
    Perry Como, “Prisoner Of Love”

    I always thought it was the Righteous Brothers' You've Lost That Loving Feeling but it actually was The Supremes with Come See About Me and that was a great song too. I'm happy. :)
