Holy Godiva and I picked five songs each from the first years of the Official UK Charts (excluding '52 because the chart only came into existence in November)... and this is what we ended up with.

Given that a Yeti used copy and paste from other entries before editing them, there might be errors in some of the information here, if you spot something, let me know and I'll get my golf club back out to smash randomly against the keyboard.
