Since you list more than one artist for some of the songs, for "A Night in Tunisia" I would list Dizzy Gillespie along side Charlie Parker. It's one of Gillespie's most important songs.

Bruce,

Your additions are up.

Are you sure about "Down The Road Apiece" & "Voo-It! Voo-It"

RYM lists them as 1947 & 1945 respectively

I'd say Billie Holiday's 2 most enduring 1946 songs are "Good Morning Heartache" and "Don't Explain". Billie's 2 major multi-label compilations (Ultimate Collection and Ken Burns Jazz) include both songs and few others from that year, and the literature about Billie often mentions these two songs.

On the Milburn yes, but not really on the other one.. The Blues Woman looks like it could be from 45. It entered the R&B charts in March.

Wkipedia says on Milburn:
His cover version of "Down the Road a Piece" (1946) was a blues song with a Texas boogie beat that was similar in many respects to rock music.

If you look at the catalog number (Aladdin 161), RYM has Aladdin 159 as 1946 and for some reason Aladdin 161 sorts 5 releases below even though the four releases in between are all higher numbers.

http://books.google.com/books?id=ZZQRQ4 ... rn&f=false

Here's an Aladdin singles discography that also says 1946:

Thanks for catching those, Brian. At times, it can be hard to find info re: lasting polarity and influence for records that never charted. They're up!

Thanks, Bruce. I've learnt to use RYM as a reference of last resort, so to speak. For instance, it lists Charlie Parker's "Ko-ko" as 1946 but, judging by your top 500 pop song list, it was out in 1945.

Looks pretty solid. I'd run it by Roger Ford and ask him to see if there's anything there that is not from 1946.
