Before 1958 the informal Billboard charts often listed songs without crediting artists (because the focus was sheet music sales rather than records) or they list band leaders without vocalists or vocalists without band leaders. In order to be consistent some of the songs have been assigned to band leaders or artists (based on entries in the Billboard and other charts). There is no way to be both consistent and to reflect the artists credited on the record labels, where a choice has had to be made we have attempted to opt for consistency. If you find a listing that could be made clearer by changing the associated artist please tell us about it.
