My grandparents were in their early 20's in '38. It seems they must have done a lot Fox Trotting.

Only just new to watching your videos, really love them all! Fantastic work. I was mainly looking at 70's and 80's but I was then curious how far you want back. I was thinking late 40's or early 50's... can't believe you're all the way back in the 30's😱

Alright, great artists. I have to say, it was beautiful, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Benny Goodman, etc. I hear Satan's music today, and I want to rip out my ears. Thanks for reminding the world that good music was written a long time ago, nothing can match those ages.

"Heart and Soul" came on and drove me nuts, I have heard this a million times but where; then it clicked. This Hoagy Carmichael tune is taught in the USA to almost all beginning piano players. You are at 1938...you're on a list tightrope without a net now. Keep going! I'm impressed. Could 1900 be just a few lists away? :D

+THO-BRO2000 Yeah I totally want to! People just seem to respond to the music more. I try to spread it around because I have such a diverse group of subscribers. But thanks for the reminder. Need to hit a few more years of Flash Trivia. And I really want to hit some top 30 songs using the UK Billboards. So many things I'm interested in lol!

+THO-BRO2000 Yeah I'm honestly not sure what my archeological excavations will dig up. As I go backwards, there's definitely gonna be a wall where the recording just stop.

+Ultra Lists Sounds great! Maybe if you end at 1920 you could do a video of the 1910s and maybe 1900s, but i don't know if that's reachable...

+THO-BRO2000 Thanks! We'll see how far the research takes me. I'm figuring I should be able to get through the 30s. I'd love to make it all the way to 1920.

Weird that connee boswell had a hit twice with the same song.

+MeFirst please Yeah I thought so too. But I also find it weird that you might find the same song recorded by different artists 3 times in the top 30 of a single year.

Perfect choice for #1. You can't get any more iconic that Artie Shaw's version of Begin the Beguine, can you? WNEW Radio in NYC continued to play Big Band music from 1935 to 1992. Every year during their final decades they would poll listeners as to what was their favorite song, and nearly every time the winner was I Can't Get Started by Bunny Berigan...even though the station rarely played it! Really thrilled to see the Boswell Sisters on this list, but also a bit perplexed. I thought that the sister act dissolved in 1935. Perhaps this was an older recording that underwent a rerelease due to Connee Boswell's resurgence accompanying Bing Crosby? Also always great to hear anything written by Hoagy Carmichael! His unique songs remained popular for many decades, and were easily adaptable from one style to another. Heart & Soul is a prime example. Compare this version to the one popularized by the Four Aces in the fifties. Interesting version of A-Tisket A-Tasket with a Latin beat. Very different from the original that Ella did with Chick Webb. Great list of some great music. Thanks!

+SI s tea glass I think my favorite on the list was the Andrews Sisters singing "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoenberg." I had never heard it before. It's a catchy little tune.
