Top 100 songs - 1955
I was reviewing my playlists for missing songs when I noticed this oddity from the Top 100 - 1955.
#3 - The Ballad of Davey Crockett, Bill Hayes
#22- The Ballad of Davey Crockett, Fess Parker
#24- The Ballad of Davey Crockett, Tennessee Ernie Ford
I had never before heard of the same song by three different performers being in the Top 25, or in the Top anything, at least in the same year. I can think of no other examples where three different versions of the same song by three different performers have appeared on any Top 1000 lists for a given decade, can you?
