1956 – Guy Mitchell records “Singing the Blues” and the song rises to the top of the Billboard chart and stays there for eleven weeks. !957 – Even Americans love to polka and not just rock and roll. German accordionist Will Glahe got on the Billboard Pop chart with his “Liechtensteiner Polka”. His first success came when he released “Beer Barrel Polka” in 1939 and it topped the U.S. Hit Parade and sold more than a million copies. 1958 – An amusing and lovely little song rose up to number one and went on to sell 4.5 million copies in seven weeks. What was the song? “The Chipmunk Song” by David Seville and The Chipmunks. As a child I even had a copy. What you might not know is that this song won three Grammy Awards – Best Comedy Performance, Best Children’s Recording and Best Engineered Record (non-classical). 1961 – The Supremes get on the charts with “Your Heart Belongs to Me”. That same year The Beach Boys released their first recording on Candle Records “Surfin’”. 1973 – Topping the charts is Elton John with “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”. 1984 – Hall and Oates come out with their sixth U.S. number one single “Out Of Touch”. http://www.classicbands.com/day/december%208.html
