1955's Hit Music & Song Charts

1955's Biggest Artists, Albums and Songs

Buy It! Autumn Leaves was a huge song in 1955. It was released by Roger Williams (#1 on Billboard Charts), Steve Allen, Mitch Miller, Jackie Gleason, Victor Young, and The Ray Charles Singers. The 1945 French song "Les feuilles mortes" (literally "The Dead Leaves") had a pretty good run, considering it was competing with that new Rock and Roll music!
New Artists in the Pop Charts Included:
Pat Boone, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Lena Horne, Al Hibbler, and Jaye P. Morgan, who later judged on the 70's game show, "The Gong Show."

Annual Best Music Hits Here !
One Hit Wonders include artists with only one song in Billboard's Music Charts, songs of note and well-known hits that did not even make the Billboard Pop Charts.
PCM Charts are based on DJ requests and online suggestions.
Some songs are listed in multiple years because some charts list the
'release date' as the official date, while others list the chart 'peak date.'
Compromising that data, we try to list songs for the year they saw the most chart action.
