Diversity was the key to the 1958 survey of your favorite songs. A wide variety of styles was represented, including doo wop, Rockabilly, and a cover version of a 1911 standard. The Elegants and Conway Twitty both had songs repeating from the Top Five from the 2016 survey.
Here’s the top five songs in alphabetical order by artist:
“At the Hop” by Danny and the Juniors
“I Wonder Why” by Dion and the Belmonts
“It’s All in the Game” by Tommy Edwards
“It’s Only Make Believe” by Conway Twitty
“Little Star” by The Elegants
