As we continue our celebration of Black Music Month I wanted to post two songs that continue to be record breakers(pun intended). These songs “The Honeydripper” from Joe Liggins and “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” from Louis Jordan are tied for the longest stay at the #1 position on what eventually became the R&B charts. In 1945 and 1946 when these songs were released the stayed atop of the “Harlem Hit Parade” for an astounding 18 weeks a piece, a record that remains in place until this very day.
