Q: Is there any song that has charted more than twice? I mean like the same version by the same artist, not remakes.

A: Yes, quite a few and they're mostly Christmas songs, like Bing Crosby's WHITE CHRISTMAS, Brenda Lee's ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE, The Chipmunks' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and THE CHIPMUNK SONG among the many. Non-Christmas songs include Bobby “Boris” Pickett's MONSTER MASH, which charted three times: 1962, 1970 and 1973. But the very first song to do so was the Five Satins' doo-wop classic IN THE STILL OF THE NITE, which charted three times: 1956, 1960 and 1961. IN THE STILL OF THE NITE was recorded in a church basement – more accurately, the basement of the St. Bernadette Catholic School in New Haven, Connecticut. Many sources claim that this is the song that introduced the term “doo-wop” in it's lyrics, but that is incorrect. The 1956 song WHEN YOU DANCE by The Turbans includes the term “doo-wop” in the lyrics, too; it hit the charts in November 1955 while IN THE STILL OF THE NITE didn't first hit the charts until September 1956.
