Billboard Top Ten Songs of 1950

1. Daddy's Little Girl - Mills Brothers

2. Mona Lisa - Nat King Cole

3. Music! Music! Music! - Teresa Brewer

4. The Tennesse Waltz - Patti Page

5. A Bushel and a Peck - Perry Como and Betty Hutton

6. Rag Mop - Ames Brothers

7. If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd Have Baked A Cake - Eileen Barton

8. Harbor Lights - Sammy Kaye

9. Goodnight, Irene - Gordon Jenkins and the Weavers

10. I Wanna Be Loved - the Andrews Sisters

An overlooked source is Your Hit Parade, prior to 1959 a better gauge of pop songs than Billboard. My Foolish Heart was number one for nine weeks, more than any other. Compare Mona Lisa at eight weeks. Daddy's Little Girl was on the chart for ten weeks but never was above number five.
