There are almost no charts from before 1920 so this list is heavily determined by very few entries.

Hi I wonder if you can help me I am looking for a cd with some of these songson in particular, Hitchey-Koo,and "The Bunny Hug Rag" plus any others from this era. Do you know where I could get one please ?
Thanks, Vivien Culton
There is a fantastic collection of material from before 1914 available for download from http://cylinders.library.ucsb.edu/
We don't have any record of either of the songs you mention (which just means they were not big hits) however you might also find them on Amazon or iTunes

I'm Twenty-One Today
Greetings, and many thanks for this super site. The song 'I'm Twenty-One Today' was sung my a northern light comedian called Jack Pleasants, who also performed 'I'm Shy Mary Ellen, I'm Shy'.
All good wishes,

When do we get a more British influence aroud her? We are the ones also.
We don't know of any good charts that list success in the UK from before 1950. We do use John Peel's list (the Peelenium) but that is only a few songs from each year.
If we had any British charts for this period we'd use them (after all we are from the UK). Do you know of any?

This page shows the top music of the day (at least the top music in the USA, we don't have many inputs).
And we don't (indeed can't) respond the next day to any requests. All the contributors here have actual jobs that we have to do to pay for the site.

Please I am in need of some help. I got a project that is due sometime this week and I don't have any name of Musicians from 1912. If anyone can help me I will be greatly Thankful. you can send it to ...
First we don't do rapid replies (we have real jobs).
Secondly, did you try looking on the page for 1912? The list is biased towards US music (its the main place we have charts for from before 1920).

Is this rare?
I have a song titled: "Titanic, In the Shadows of the Deep", and it dates to sometime after the sinking of the Titanic and this score is from 1912. +It is written by John Boland (words), and William Held (music) and is published by the Charles H. Henderson music publishing company. I would like to know its current market value, as well as how many were printed (if you people know).
We have no idea, we're not sheet music experts.
We can tell you it was never a hit.

8 - (unknown) - I'm Twenty-One Today - 1912 - Peel list 1 of 1912
Many thanks for your exccellent list.
About the mentioned song: If you look at message #& here + http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=1378163&langid=3 you'll find "Alec Kendal" as Artist. This is also confirmed at this page: + http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peelennium
Best regards from Switzerland, Harald Fries
Alec Kendal is listed as the composer of the song, not the performer. In fact you will notice that in the Wikipedia page that there is a gap in the performer column, reflecting the fact that the original list didn't specify who sang it.
Thanks for input, but we'll not modify the original entry.
