Playlist: Where I Was In… 1958?

Should have called these posts something because no way I was even living, you know? Have I said that before, I think so! Anyway I really do love 50’s music and like last weeks post about 1959 I’ve easy got 25 already, trying to mix it up a bit too and not just having all the same artist yet again plus trying to cover all styles of late 50’s music in these posts too!

Just saying again: I’ve edited and updated all the yearly playlists I’ve made from 1960 to 2005! So the final score line is: 25 songs: 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 30 songs: 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 40 songs: 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 55 songs: 1984, 1985, 1986. 70 songs: 1987, 1988, 1989, 100 songs: 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999. 40 songs: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.
