While posting on "songs everybody loves you hate" (yeh that's it) I thought of seeing if anybody else loves '50s music like I do.  Think of the 1950s for music as not ending until the British Invasion, about 1964 (not entirely accurate, but good for broad strokes, like grandma had). 

Here's where the '50s party starts:

Not a 50s performance, but Lloyd Price's 1958 single may be my favorite pop recording from the 50s.

I rented "The Collins Kids live at town Hall Party" from Netflix.   It's awesome though they didn't do "rock n roll polka" which was a dissapointment

Are The Temptations in 1965 too late to make the cutoff?
Small | Large


Before Carole King became famous as a singer herself, she was writing a lot of these hits in the early to mid 60s. "Will You Still Love me Tomorrow" was recorded by the Shirelles. 1960, I think.

Not sure why somebody spliced the clips from "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Mr. Ed" in there.

TEMPTATIONS are great, but a bit late for the era I suggested: Pre-Brit invasion.  However THE SHIRELLES are 'zackly what I'm talkin' 'bout! 
Here's JUNE CHRISTY some west coast "Cool School" Jazz, couldn't resist, it's so great and swift!
