1959 – The Results


Like other 2020 first-round surveys, traditional favorites have been overturned in the poll for the top songs of 1959.  Perennial performers like the Crests (“The Angels Listened In”) and Dion (“A Teenager in Love”) finished in 10th and 13th place, the worst first-round finish for both songs.  The Isley Brothers returned to the top five for the third consecutive year, while Jackie Wilson made his third appearance in four years.

Here’s the top five songs from 1959 alphabetically by artist:

“I’ve Had It” by The Bell Notes

“It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” by Buddy Holly

“Sorry (I Ran All the Way Home)” by The Impalas

“Shout” by The Isley Brothers

“Lonely Teardrops” by Jackie Wilson

Check out the rest of the first round schedule, plus links to open surveys and results from other years here, and details on this year’s Grooveyard Great 88 here.  And don’t forget to listen for updates and your favorite songs on…
