1958 - A Year of Diversity



It was a year of diversity.  No one name ruled in 1958, but several new names made the charts.  Tommy Edwards, Danny and the Juniors, Chuck Berry, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Cochran, Ricky Nelson,  Elvis, and many others had number one songs during 1958.  Connie Francis ("Who's Sorry Now") was the first female to become a leading vocalist without the dominance of a male counterpart.   She set an example for many other women to make their way on the rock 'n' roll scene.  Jerry Lee Lewis's career took a nose dive because he married his very young, teenage cousin.  America was shocked by his scandalous actions!  Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" from 1958 eventually was named the #7 Most Popular Song of All-Time by Rolling Stone!
 

 
Interesting Fact:  Danny and the Juniors became famous for "At the Hop".  At the Hop became a household subject, not just the name of a song.

The Rolling Stone named 500 of the greatest songs of all time.  11 songs made the cut in 1958!
