1959: "Hushabye" by the New York quintet, The Mystics, enters the Top 40 of the Billboard Pop Chart. The song will eventually reach #20 during a nine week run, and be used by Alan Freed as the closing theme to his televised Saturday night Big Beat Show. The following year, the group would record several more tunes using Paul Simon (aka Jerry Landis), and later Jay Traynor on lead vocals, but never recaptured the magic of "Hushabye".
