Pat Boone discography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

During his career as a singer and composer, Pat Boone released 63 singles, mostly during the 1950s and early 1960s when Boone was a successful pop singer and, for a time, the second-biggest charting artist behind Elvis Presley according to Billboard.[1] Boone has had over 25 singles reach the top 20 on the U.S. singles charts, including the number-one hits "Ain't That a Shame" (1955), "I Almost Lost My Mind" (1956), "Don't Forbid Me" (1957), "Love Letters in the Sand" (1957), "April Love" (1957), and "Moody River" (1961). He set a Billboard record, which he still holds, for spending 220 consecutive weeks on the charts with one or more songs each week.[1]

Boone also had several top 20 albums during this time, including Four by Pat (1957) which peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. album charts, and his highest-charting album, Stardust (1958), which reached No. 2. He also released two hit soundtracks for musical films in which he starred, April Love (1957) and State Fair (1962). Most of his records during the 1950s and 1960s were released on the Dot Records label.

Although Boone's last single release was in 1984, he has continued to regularly release both studio albums and compilation albums for six decades, in addition to several soundtracks and video albums. His post-1960s output has been on a variety of different labels and has increasingly focused on Christian music. A notable exception was his controversial 1997 album In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, which featured Boone covering well-known hard rock and heavy metal songs such as "Stairway to Heaven", "Smoke on the Water" and "Crazy Train" in a jazz/ big band style. It reached No. 125 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart, thus becoming Boone's first album to chart in 35 years.
