Brilliant - just livened up my night - I only knew about 1/3 of these - we live and learn.

The original of WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE was certainly NOT by Alma Cogan. The song was written and first performed by members of Frankie Lymon's group, The Teenagers.

There are so many wrong entries here, it's quite laughable. 'One Night' was originally done by Smiley Lewis, not Fats Domino, 'Ain't Nothin Shakin' was first done by Eddie Fontaine years before Billy Craddock's version.
'Suzie-Q' was Dale Hawkins, not Merle Kilgore...I could go on but I won't. Whoever compiled these tracks has no idea!!
