Voices Carry by Til Tuesday (is my list looking a little too 80s here?)
Yes it is looking a little "80s", but who gives a ratzass? I really like these songs, too.
Welcome to the club.I Find myself listening to more 50's R+R more and more.I always wonder how American Rock and Roll would have evlved if the British Invasion had not elapsed good old 50's-early 60's music...
What the British Invasion did was really revive interest in true Rock n' Roll and Blues, many 50s classics were covered by THE BEATLES
, THE ANIMALS
and THE STONES
... great acts like CHUCK BERRY
, BUDDY HOLLY
and ROY ORBISON
were an inspiration to the Brits.
Nobody named these bands or groups or people, so I guess I will:ZAPPA
...Frank Zappa... King Crimson...
and KING CRIMSON
were both mentioned by Torgo
Yep, I also have that Halloween Hootenanny disc. I've wondered the exact same thing about how Rock n Roll would have evolved without Beatlemania. My theory is that punk and psychobilly are showing us the answer to that question.
Not true! The PUNK movement was largely instigated by a love for the old 2 minute 45rpm... A lot of the PUNKS and Proto-PUNKS were inspired by early Brit invasion records, and the American record response. THE RAMONES
were even inspired to get their name from PAUL McCARTNEY
... if that's not a tribute to the British Invasion, I don't know what is!
Just found this old thread and enjoyed reading everybody's comments (but not so much the long lists...)
