2. Donna

Donna was kept out of the #1 spot in 1958 by a song called Stagger Lee, but a #2 hit is nothing to sneeze at, especially if you're only 17.

Ritchie Valens wrote this number and it appeared on the A-side with La Bamba on the B-side.

Only three singles were ever released in Valens life and the other two were "Come On Let's Go" and "Fast Freight".
