 * This list is not an actual survey. I have no Canadian singles charts in my possession
prior to 1957.So for the years 1954-56 US charts are primarily substituted for Canadian singles charts to assist in my compilation of the Top 5000 of all-time. This year-end list here is primarily compiled from US charts with some references made to songs from that year
from the ?CHUM CHART BOOK? by ?Ron Hall?.
