Alternative Pressings:  As indicated in the above table, successive pressings of a given single sometimes used different takes of the same titles. In addition, other versions substituted alternative titles as follows. (Note that our splitting into "standard" and "alternative" versions is somewhat arbitrary: it is not always known which was the original.)
