So you thought the 50's were all about the Rock and Roll. Sure, in 1955 you had your "Rock Around the Clock". But these songs were also in the Top 25 that year:

Ballad of Davy Crockett by Bill Hayes
Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White by Perez Prado
Dance with me Henry (!) by Georgia Gibbs
The Crazy Otto Rag (!!) by Johnny Maddox
Sincerely by The McGuire Sisters

Maybe they had Easy Listening radio stations in the 50's, too.
The Great Song Thesaurus provided these nuggets.

And, don't forget Sheb Wooley's One-Eyed One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater, my all time favorite!
