FRIDAY MUSIC: Golden Oldies - the 1950s, by JD

There are, on our televisions, a number of channels dedicated to playing 'golden oldies' music from the 60s, the 70s and the 80s. But there is no channel dedicated to 50s music for some reason. It cannot be because the music was bad, perhaps it is because of the lack of video/film showing the artists performing their songs.

So as a small contribution to keeping the music alive, a selection of goldne oldies from more than 60+ years ago. I think it would be fair to say that musically the fifties ended in October 1962 with the release of the first record by the Beatles and their inspiration came from the music of that era. Without the 50s popular music of today would be very different.

Some good tunes there. I always thought I was born in the wrong decade. I identify as a teenager from the fifites
I remember that first one was covered by Shakin Stevens. Some of those lyrics might not be well recieved in the modern day :-)
