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 people 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 dolls, Silly Putty, jukeboxes, American Bandstand, hops, doo-wop songs, rockabilly music and so much more.
Music in the 50s introduced us to rock and roll. Although the exact start of 50s 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.
