"Sh-Boom" by the Crew Cuts? Never heard of it or the group.

"Little Things Mean a Lot" by Kitty Kallen in the UK. Never heard of those either.

I always assumed it was something like "16 Tons" by Tennessee Ernie Ford. My folks had that 45 since I can remember. And "The Thing" (is that Phil Harris?) from around the same time.

I was more into classical music anyway. It was probably something by Bernstein or Copland or Toscanini (conducting).
