Butterfly 45 by Andy Williams

It may have been the rock and roll era but Andy Williams was decidedly not a rock and roll artist. Still, he retained his popularity for decades. While he sold tens of millions of albums, he also placed 47 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Charts.

He would only have have one number one single. “Butterfly” would stall at number two on the Best Sellers In Stores Chart and peak at number four on the Most Playewd In Jukeboxes chart. It reached number one on the important Hot 100 Chart, March 30, 1957, where it remained for three weeks. It also topped the Most Played by Disc Jockeys Chart for two weeks.

It may not be his most well-known song but it remains the biggest hit of his career.
