US Top 40 Singles For The Week Ending: 4th January, 1958
Issue Date: 13th January, 1958

EDITOR’S NOTE: On occasion you will see two songs placed at the same entry number. These were common in this era of the Billboard charting system, as songs that have tied for that position. This will become one of Billboard’s fixes by 1960, using a more accurate charting system to assist the ranking system.

US Hot 40 Singles For The Week Ending 17th August, 1958
Issue Date: 11th August, 1958

EDITOR’S NOTE: On occasion you will see two songs placed at the same entry number, as seen below at #9. These were common in this era of the Billboard charting system as songs that have tied for that position. This will become one of Billboard’s fixes by 1960, using a more accurate charting system to assist the ranking system.
