#32 - No Moon At All

Per Wikipedia & Joel Whitburn this also made the US Billboard Charts (#21 - 4 weeks).

Hmm, the older version of the Bullfrog data seems to have missed out songs with Whitburn numbers 1953_160..1953_256 (including this one). We've used the latest version (which fixes this) to add the missing 90 odd entries back in.

We spotted this issue with your comment on Percy Faith's "Swedish Rhapsody" so it should be fixed

Thanks

An Album of the Ames Brothers

Songs: "I'll Never Smile Again", "Paper Doll", "Moments to Remember", "To Each his Own", "Irene Goodnight", "You, You, You"

During the late 1940s and early 1950s song charts documented the success of a song, and often did not (at the time) record which artist was singing it. Hard effort from people like "Bullfrog" have worked out whose versions were most popular at the time and hence the artist to assign them to.

The song you call "You, You, You" is listed here as "You You You" (second in the list). All the rest were never hits for the Ames Brothers in the Billboard chart, but rather for other similar groups:

"I'll Never Smile Again" - The Platters "Paper Doll" - The Mills Brothers "Moments to Remember" - Four Lads "To Each his Own" - The Platters "Irene Goodnight" - The Weavers

So those songs have not been listed because they were not hits for the Ames Brothers.
