The only one I know without some help is part of #17 - Marie Osmond recorded the 1973 version.

I'm with Lisa, except I can identify #14 also: Rolf Harris the emu guy! The rest, I'm clueless, and I thought I was good at Oldies trivia!

I think that Ivy Rose was recorded by Perry Como, and 1957 sounds about right. Paper Roses was first recorded by Anita Bryant (a rather interesting lady). And the High Numbers are known today as The Who.

Ba ba ba ba Barbara Ann was first recorded by a group called The Regents (later known as The Runarounds) in '62, but it wasn't released until '65 on the Cousins label. The BBs released their famous version the next year ('66). [OK, I admit it, I looked this one up!]

16) I think was the Ventures, the original beach music band. I just love their stuff! Some of them are still actively recording.

I'm going to copy that list and send it to my sister in da U.P., she loves that stuff!

Funny thing is, I was in high school early 60s and loved Tie Me Kangaroo Down but can't remember who sang it for the life of me!

AND, I watch "One Hit Wonders" all the time on VH1, ah what a memory I've got! Can I use the 50s thing as an excuse????
