Right you are. I saw Anthony Newly in Stop The World, I Want To Get Off. It was in my ushering days. Saw lots of Broadway shows (on tour), the Minneapolis Symphony, The Met
(on tour also), folks singers, Russian Folk Dancers, etc.
Frank Sinatra recorded almost everything. Richard Kiley was the star of Man of La Mancha. When I saw it Jose Ferrar was the star. Didn't really have a great voice, but it got a big hand anyway.
42 is Allan Sherman. The melody is from an opera.
44 is Jiminy Cricket. The voice was provided by Cliff Edwards. In the days when I had a
huge record collection, I had an album by Cliff. Among other things he sang Tiptoe
Through the Tulips. (And much better than Tiny Tim.)
47 Thurl Ravenscroft. Thurl was the voice of Tony the Tiger. I used to have a record
of Thurl singing Christmas Carols. The Pied Pipers and some female singer were on the record too. Jo Stafford, I think.
48 Carmen Miranda
49 I still don't know this one.
50 The students including the Prince. Most famously Mario Lanza.
Patti, I never heard of The Long and Winding Road. I was not a big Beatles fan. I looked
up the song. Read it was their 20th (and last) number one hit.
I think these two are still unguessed.
39 Honey. Bobby Goldsboro. I lived the year 1968 in Las Vegas. Seems like almost the
entire year this song was on the radio along with various hits by Glen Campbell.
40 The Man That Got Away. Judy Garland. She sang it in A Star is Born and on her TV
show. One of the writers was Harold Arlen, Judy's favorite composer. He wrote the songs
for The Wizard of Oz.
54 Debbie Reynolds. I first heard this song in 1958 while riding in a car with a couple other
kids. We were on our way to St. Paul to register for college. They played the song every 20
minutes. I thought it was great; still do. John Gary also did a wonderful version.
59 Tennessee Ernie Ford.
60 Johnny Cash and June Carter according to legend. However, I read a few years ago June
actually wrote it with another c-w songwriter named Merle Kilgore. He had other hits with
Wolverton Mountain and Johnny Reb.
Paul McCartney And Wings later covered The Long And Winding Road. Can't remember if it was that song or another one of theirs over which there was a protracted dispute on who "owned" the rights to the song.
55 is Perry Como. Later covered by Roberta Flack and others.
56 is also Perry Como, but also Frank Sinatra.
58 The Carpenters is most commonly known. Believe it or not, Perry Como covered this one as well!
60. The Unicorn
61. The Song of the Pious Itinerant (Hallelujah, I'm a Bum)
62. American Pie
63. These Boots Were Made For Walkin'
64. Trust in Me (as the voice of Kaa in Disney's Jungle Book - original)
65. Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny (Yellow Polka Dot Bikini)
Very good, Duckie. I saw the New Christy Minstrels at our school. The only famous people
who ever performed there. At least when I was a student. The tall skinny guy who played the
double bass was Clarence Treat. Decades later I played bridge with a fellow who had had
Clarence as a High School teacher.
Who sang and wrote these?
67 If You Knew Susie
68 Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show
69 The Circle Game
