Guy Mitchel with "Black Eyed Susie"

Alma Cogan with "Bell Bottom Trousers"

Danny Kaye with a version of "The Lincolnshire Poacher"

Donegan with "Rock Island Line" of course

Chris Barber had some success with "Bobby Shaftoe"

The Vipers "Don't You Rock Me Daddy-O" from the fiddle tune Darneo/Sally Ann.
