UK: ... well, the UK didn't even HAVE a singles chart until 1952.

That's how frakkin' old I am ...


Haha,I remember reading your articles in the NME when I was a junior in college 1973/1974. My friends dad used to go to England on business every month and he would always bring back the new issues of NME and Melody Maker. I remember reading your articles about David Bowie(Goodbye Ziggy Hello Aladdin Sane).

December 1955


In the USA


Sixteen Tons

Merle Travis wrote it and Tennessee Ernie Ford had the hit.


In the UK:


"Rock Around The Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets




I've been playing a pretty cool version of Sixteen Tons in my my current band. I think we're going to have to start doing "Rock Around the Clock" too.
