“Sixty Minute Man” by Billy Ward and the Dominos (1951)
Billy Ward and His Dominoes were a big deal in the 1950s, being one of the best-selling acts of that decade and having three Billboard Top-40 hits by the end of the decade. It was an integrated group, named for the black and white on dominoes. (2013: not on survey, 2012: not on survey)
Come back each night through Christmas as we unwrap another song that just missed the Great 88. You can also check out first round results here.
