Let's have a burger and a malt!

The end of the decade brought lots of songs about young love. Sweet, innocent tunes about guys and gals from a time when wearing a fellow's letter sweater meant something. Of course, not as much as going "steady" or gosh, being "pinned," which meant you were engaged to be engaged. No, that's not a typo. That's the kind of serious committment wearing a guy's fraternity pin represented.

Listed chronologically below are among the most popular and best remembered songs of 1958.

The Number One song of 1959 was Bobby Darin's tune Mack the Knife.
