Chattanooga Choo Choo - vocal by Tex Beneke, Marion Hutton and The Modernaires

As an aside, a common error is to believe that Chattanooga Choo Choo was
the first million seller ever. Not true! It was the first million selling record
for which a Gold Record was awarded. The previous million seller was Gene Austin's
1927 recording of "My Blue Heaven". There were others before that.
