A-Z Billboard Singles – Letter F

Gary: I have decided to go through one book from A to Z and write about all of the songs and artists that only made the Billboard Top 40 “once”.

The authority will be Joel Whitburn’s Top 40 Hits 1955 to 2000, 7th Edition. 624660-M

Now being as old as I am you know I will not go much further than the 70’s, sorry.

Some of the Billboard listings just did not fit in our blog and if they were your favourites, sorry I just could not list every one as there are 26 letters in the alphabet and I’m not getting any younger.

The next letter is:

    I’m really enjoying going through these posts. Good work!

    • Hey Nick – I’m so glad you are enjoying these posts. Gary does an amazing job putting the material together. He will appreciate your comment too.

      BTW, how long have we known each other? Almost 60 years according to my calculations. This makes your comments all the more meaningful. Thanks, man.
