1959: Dave "Baby" Cortez reached the top spot on the Billboard chart with "The Happy Organ". The song was originally recorded under the name "The Dog and the Cat" with a vocal track that didn't work out. Cortez then added an organ solo and changed the title. A follow-up record was called "The Whistling Organ" which stalled at #61, but Cortez would find his way back to the Top Ten in 1962 with "Rinky Dink".
