Songs from my past

I had some time so I decided to look up the songs that were number one on the musical charts in 1946. So this is for all my buddies born, like me in 1946. These songs are what are parents loved, romanced and danced to in 1946. The song that was number one the day I was born was "The Old Lamp-Lighter".
