The 1950s were before my time, but I still enjoy many of the songs from that decade:

Sway - Dean Martin. Fun song. I also really enjoy the much later version by Michael Buble'

Be-Bop-A-Lula - Gene Vincent & His Blue Caps

Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley. It was originally done by Carl Perkins.

Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley. Great vocals.

My favorite 1950's songs...
by: Anonymous

Does anyone remember a song from the 50's where parts of the songs sounded like ''here and now'' and what sounded like ''down into my heart''? I heard an oldies song that sounded like this in an antique store, and do not for the life of me know what the song is. It sounds like a duo or group of guys that sing it. The singers sound a little like Herman's Hermits, I think.

Please help me find it. I'd appreciate it
