  1. Well, for the artist’s sake, I’m kind of glad “Mambo #5” wasn’t in the top 5 songs of its year. That really would’ve thrown a wrench in the works.

  2. What about Roxanne and Josie in the 80s and 90s?? Off the top of my memory, “Hey Jude” and “Runaround Sue” are missing from the earlier times, too…

  3. The thirties just weren’t a time of first names, were they?

    People could barely afford their family names. It was hard times.
