See if you remember these tunes from 1960.  We don't always agree with the charts (music sales), but it is a way of viewing the top songs of the year.  Most of the tunes are still easy to listen to, albiet not as good as the forties or early fifties.

These songs were ripped at a very low meg, so, while they'll sound fine on your computer they will not have the fidelity you'll receive from the actual recordings that you can buy at your favorite music store.   Also, they are .wma files.

That's no Mistake you're seeing.  #44 is listed as #59, which is correct. 
FYI # 44 was Mule Skinner Blues by the Fendermen.   Bobby Vee needed
to be in the mix.

Interesting video of "You'll Never Walk Alone" sung by Gerry & the Pacemakers"  Back in 1963 Anglia TV would show the group singing between programs.  The actual group of course.
