My mom used to sing this when I was a kid, but plug my nickname into it . I always thought she made it up

Archer

With the great Billy Mure on guitar. One of my unsung hero's. Listen to the solo, this is 1950 and you can bet that Chuck Berry was listening.

Barry I. Grauman

Bob Clampett often had "Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent" sing a few bars of this on "TIME FOR BEANY" (the original puppet version of "BEANY AND CECIL").

Dario Witer

Yeah, the cartoon of Cecil entering a song contest which this song is featured is on YouTube. 📺👍😁

B&O5300

One of the first #1 hits of the decade and has also been featured in the sitcom MASH.

Don't have a cow, man! He said "one of the first"

@the78prof Regardless, that song that you mentioned was the last song of 1949 and it spilled over into 1950, but it was by no means the very first song of 1950, as this song was the very first No. 1 song of 1950.

@Dario Witer Clarification: there's a good argument that "I Can Dream, Can't I?" was really the first. The issue of Billboard showing "Rudolph" at #1 was dated January 7, which was the end-of-week Saturday following that issue's Monday Jan 2 appearance on the newsstands, reflecting the survey period which had ended the previous week during the last week of December. As Joel Whitburn has noted in his books, you should subtract 11 to 13 days from the Billboard issue date to determine the actual calendar date for a track's chart status.

"I CANNOT STAND IT! The world has gone completely mad! Those people can neither sing nor spell!" -- Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, upon hearing the song from Hawkeye's radio

WRONG!!!!! "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer" was the first No. 1 song of the decade, as well as the year 1950(January 7 - January 13, 1950), followed by "I Can Dream, Can't I?", by The Andrew Sisters(accompanied by Gordon Jenkins & His Orchestra; January 14 - February 10, 1950), and then this recording, which hit No. 1 on Billboard magazine for one week(February 11 - February 17, 1950). "Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy," by country singer Red Foley displaced "Rag Mop" at No. 1 on February 18 for four weeks(February 18 - March 17, 1950).
