    We all remember those songs that topped the charts when we were teenagers; but there are a lot of songs that came out and never made it to the top 10, or weren't there long if they did. Some of the songs that I really liked just came and went, and you never hear of them anymore.
    One of those songs in my life was called "Night Mist over highway No. 2, by Del Kacher. It is (to me, anyway) a beutiful, slightly otherworldly kind of a song. You can't even find it on youtube (and that's BAD !); but I did find a similar version of the song done by the Three Suns.
    What songs that never made a top hit do you remember ? Lets share some of these almost-forgotten songs with each other.

    Jack Scott had several hits in the late 50s but I never hear them anymore, even on the oldies stations.

    "Tumbling Tumbleweed" by The Sons of The Pioneers. That song still gives me chills! When I was a kid, I found a 78 RPM copy of it somewhere, and took it home. It was so scratched up, I could barely understand the lyrics, but the harmony came through just the same. I was forever hooked on that song. Years later, I heard Ken Curtis (Festus) sing it on a telethon. I learned that he was one of the original members of the SOP's.

    Brittany, that was one of my first favorite songs, too ! ( I loved it so much that my first bike was named Tumbleweed, and I have used it as an online name in several forums, as well.) Roy Rogers, my HERO when I was a little girl, was one of the founders of the original Sons of the Pioneers; so I enjoyed a lot of the songs that they sang.
    One that I really liked was "Springtime in the Rockies". My mother used to love that song, and she and my dad used to sing it in the car when we were going somewhere, and I loved singing along with them. They sang a lot together, and harmonized beautifully on those old songs.

    That's awesome to hear! Oh yeah I loved Roy Rogers too! LOL I loved Dale, but I was so jealous of her! I remember my cousins and I would play, Cowboys and Indians, and I would always be Dale Evans. We would go around singing their songs all the time!

    Good ones Gary R. Johnny Horton is one of my all time favorites. I went to a concert to see him just a few months before he was killed.

    Grandma thumping on the piano and the family singing, Yes, we have no bananas, was always a favorite. I'm going back 70 years here folks. WW2 songs were popular and Pistol Packing Mama was a favorite of mine. Lots of oldies come to mind.:)

    Davey Crocket was one of my favorite shows. I was just telling one of my grandson's about Davey Crocket and Daniel Boone, of course he had no idea what I was talking about. He barely knew about the Alamo. What are these kids learning in school is my question.

    Kyu Sakamoto - a Japanese singer and actor, best known outside of Japan for his international hit song "Sukiyaki", which was sung in Japanese and sold over 13 million copies. It reached number one in the United States Billboard Hot 100 in June 1963. He was also the first Asian singer to have a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100. He died on August 12, 1985, in the crash of Japan Airlines Flight 123, the deadliest single-aircraft accident in history. All 15 crew members and 505 of the 509 passengers on board died.

    "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost overnight" was a song that I doubt that anyone who had heard it could ne'er forget.
    But, the one that really brings a tear to my left eye and a welt on my rear was the "laughing song." The part that went, "the apple butter paddle is all in splinters now, mother wore it out a tinklin' me," brings back tons of practical remembrances. But, as I distinctly recall, it was my Grandmother, who wielded the famed paddle with much exuberance, and my Grandfather who loved to sing the derned song.

    One song that I really loved was "Gonna find me a bluebird" by Marvin Rainwater. I think that he did sing other songs; but this is the one that i remember the best.

    I like "The Shortest Song In The World", by Kenny Price. I first heard this on a morning radio show, as a fill in.;)
