Len Barry broke into the top 5 in 1964 with "1,2,3."

The 1910 Fruitgum Co. had a top 10 follow up to "Simon Says" in 1968 with "1,2,3 Red Light."

"Seven Little Girls (sittin' in the back seat huggin' and a-kissin' with Fred)" peaked at number 9 in 1959 for Paul Evans.  Paul Evans was a true Rock and Roll era pioneer who composed Bobby Vinton's great number 1 oldies love song "Roses are Red."

Before The Searchers, in 1965, went into the top 5 with "Love Potion Number 9," it was The Clovers, a group who had formed in 1946, who broke into the top 5 with the same song.  This was back in 1959.

From the album "Still Crazy After All These Years," Paul Simon had the number 1 hit for 3 consecutive weeks in 1976 with "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover."  The composing of the song was inspired by Paul Simon's divorce.  It was the number 7 song on Billboard's pop chart for 1976.

Though many people remember Ringo Starr's number 1 version of "You're Sixteen" from 1971, Johnny Burnette broke into the top ten with the same song in 1960.  "You're Sixteen" was written by Walt Disney writers Robert and Richard Sherman who were, maybe, better known for writing "It's a Small World After All."
