Popular 1950s Songs
1950S SONGS: Oh, the 1950’s. This is the decade most people of any age would love to experience, or re-experience.
For many of us today, it still conjures up an image of innocence, even in the music from the 50s. In addition to 50s songs, we think of bobby socks, saddle shoes, poodle skirts, pearl necklaces, white sunglasses, ponytails, crew cuts, pompadours, greasers, T-Birds, cruising, drive-ins, diners, hula-hoops, Barbie, Silly Putty, jukeboxes, American Bandstand, hops, doo-wop, rockabilly and so much more.
Music in the 50s introduced us to rock and roll. Although the exact start of rock and roll has long been a big debate, many universally consider the 1955 song “Rock Around The Clock” by Bill Haley And His Comets to be the first rock and roll song.
Frankie Avalon, Tony Bennett, Chuck Berry, Pat Boone, Teresa Brewer, Johnny Cash, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Bobby Darin, Doris Day, Fats Domino, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and The Crickets, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Dean Martin, the McGuire Sisters, Ricky Nelson, Patti Page, the Platters, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, and, especially, Elvis Presley were all wildly popular for 1950s music.
So, sit back and click below to take a little tour of the songs from the Fabulous Fifties, starting with right before the beginning of rocking around the clock, 1954!
