  1. Reblogged this on a1000mistakes and commented:

    OK, its’ kind-of recycled blog post today but half of it is totally new, now is 40 songs for 1955! Does anyone care about 50’s music these days? Anyway I did say last year when I first posted this with 20 songs, it was just a start so here’s an update now! Starting where I stop last year but changing it a little bit now, added more that one track of the same artists so the mid-50’s to me means year zero because Bo Diddley recorded his debut 7 inch singles. Bo get a song each ten tracks so four are included plus it’s Etta James, The Penguins, Frank Sinatra and Julie London all do have a couple each now! I do know it’s totally biased view of 1955 because I’m missed most of the biggest hits of the year but I’ve made it so it’s stuff I like/love! I think most styles of music back then is covered? I was going to give credit vaguely to where I first hear them but that might be a bit boring? How much can you write when reposting something? I don’t think I’ve done this before? Or have I? Tell me, if this reblog is pointless or whatever?
    Cheers 🙂
