Traditional favorites continued to dominate the survey for the best songs of 1956. “In the Still of the Night” reached the top five for a record fifth year. Elvis Presley also repeated in the Top 5, along with “Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino. Perhaps helped by his death during the voting period, “Blue Monday” also reached the Top 5.
Here’s the top five songs from 1956 alphabetically by artist:
“Blue Monday” by Fats Domino
“Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino
“In the Still of the Night” by Five Satins
“The Wayward Wind” by Gogi Grant
“Don’t Be Cruel” by Elvis Presley
