This page lists the top songs of 1949 in the source charts. The way that the various charts are combined to reach this final list is described on the in the site generation page. There is also a set of monthly tables showing the various number ones on any date during 1949.

Between 1920 and 1940 there are few available charts (at least that we can find). These results should be treated with some caution since, with few exceptions, they are based on fairly subjective charts and biased towards the USA.

During this era music was dominated by a number of "Big Bands" and songs could be attributed to the band leader, the band name, the lead singer or a combination of the them. It is common, for example, to see the same song listed with three different artists. And, just to stop us from getting bored, the success of a song was tied to the sales of sheet music, so a popular song would often be perfomed by many different combinations of singers and bands and the contemporary charts would list the song, without clarifying whose version was the major hit. Where we have found such issues we have attempted to consolidate the entries using the most widely accepted value for the artist in each case.

The top ten song artists of 1949 were:

Vaughn Monroe

Riders In the Sky (#1) was also on Peel List #1.

You are correct, there was a mistake in our listing, thanks for telling us

Steve Lawrence

Steve Lawrence certainly wasn't English and neither is he dead (sadly, his long time partner, Eydie Gorme is), so perhaps you may be thinking of Steve Conway, a fairly popular English singer in our pre-chart days, who died after heart surgery in 1952.

Hut-Sut Song

This may be the song that the questioner from August 31, 2012 was asking about: The Hut-Sut Song (A Swedish Serenade) (5-2-41) - King Sisters. it is a fun song.

Rare Recording

I have what I think is a rare recording of a song recorded by Julie Conway and Dick Byron and Joe Crichio Orchestra. This song was released on the charts in 1949. It is a 78 on Dana Records, Manufactured by Dana Music Company New York City U.S.A.

What is rare about this copy is: it is recorded on mauve colored plastic or vinyl. The label is white with blue text. Besides the info on the label listed above, it states just below the Dana name, Disc Jockey Use Only. It has some scratches by still plays good for it's age.

I was wondering if you have any idea what this would be valued at?

If not, where could I find out?

We don't have any idea of vinyl prices. The site to look at would be http://www.discogs.com/ (to see how rare it is) and eBay to see what people would pay for it.

Maybe you can help

It might have been a record by Red Ingle and the Hot Seven I have one which featured Jo Stafford (as Cinderella).

The main side is Timtayshun (Temptation) The flip side was "I Love You For Seventy Mental Reasons." There is an accordion featured on this record

Maybe you can help

My brothers and I remember a record Dad used to play that had a chorus that sounded like they were singing "Ka viva viva vit". We're all in our early 60's so the song was probably written or being played about the period of 5 years either side of 1950.

It was sung by a group, male and female in close harmony and had a bit of accordian in there and sounded a bit "Jo Stafford-ish". I can sing the tune all the way through but don't know the words and don't know the title. Do you have any idea what it could be called?

Here at the Turret we have no idea, maybe one of our users can help?

Since you are in the US the obvious source would be Amazon.com, searching on their site I see they have a CD called "16 Most Requested Songs" by Buddy Clark that has the track on. It is also avaialble as an mp3 download at:
