50S SONGS WP

Am I dating myself?
I was born in 1958 but I knew all the songs. Much to my surprise -- so some nice selection there sploof!
I think I might even do well on the sixties -- but from there on its all down hill!

I agree Barry, it was nice to actually know them for a change!!!!
And they were SONGS in those days, unlike most of what passes for
music these days (Did I just hear my grandmother talking????)

I knew them all (and I was born in 1956), but one of them baffled me because of the usual incorrect assumption about a word, which caused me to expend more letters than I should have. Ah, well, maybe I'll do better on the 60s...

Thanks for a fun puzzle today. Indeed, it was a thrill to know all of the songs with just a few letters (one without any letters). Do all you young whippersnappers who were born in the 1950s know how much you age me? I graduated from high school in 1956, so these songs were what I listened to while I did my homework. And I agree, those were the days when songs were really songs and the singers were singing, not yelling. Ahhh, those were the days! (At least in my memories)

I grew up listening to these song also, makes you think of being young again. I graduated in 1959 and was familiar wth all of these, what passes for music nowadays is not only hard on the ears but the singers need their mouths washed out with soap. I listen to country now because at least most of the time it is a little more easy to listen to. (r)

Ah yes, the class of '56. I was 13 in 1950 so I can honestly say that I spent my entire teen years in the '50's. Pegged pants, DA's, the back row at the drive-in. Us guys were kind of weird looking but the girls really looked like girls. Drink cheap beer and wait for the bed to start spinning when you hit the sack. Lucky Strikes rolled up in my T-shirt sleeve. (after I got out of sight of the house though). Having to drive 30 miles to Toledo Ohio for the nearest Pizza joint.
I think the song selection in the WP was right on. I should have done better though. My 70 year old mind just MIGHT be a little rusty.
Onward and upward.

One of the song titles is slightly wrong -- an "a" used instead of a "the." Probably a problem only if you're trying to guess with no letters filled in.

Did you know that the title of every song written during the fifties consisted of a nine-letter word followed by a four-letter word? Really. I stared at one puzzle and triumphantly answered without needing any letters whatsoever: CHANTILLY LACE. Then I was so proud of myself that after eating the 3-move penalty, it was nary a moment till I found my next bitter pill on BLUEBERRY HILL. It did take me a few letters to realize that JAILHOUSE ROCK was yet another 50s song that fit the pattern.

TANJ.

My 15 yr old son collects 45's & is constantly quizzing me on old songs, most of which, were before my time. Who knew it would pay off with 500 points. We bought him a 1962 Rowe AMI jukebox. Stop by for a visit & we can Rock Around The Clock
