1950 HOT CHART which ranked radio and jukebox play, listed the top song as Pink Champagne by Joe Liggins who also had the top song in 1945, Honeydripper. Every man wanted to be a honeydripper.
SOCK IT TO ME was the original name of Hank Ballard’s 2nd song, Work with Me Annie. They thought the original name was too suggestive and wouldn’t be played on air. They were right. They didn’t play Annie Had a Baby either.
