"Bye Bye Love"
Well, I'll simply have to add this one because it
really was one of the all-time hits: "All I Have to Do is Dream" by the Everly Brothers. When
I went back east in 1959, my sister, Lucy, played that crazy song over and over and over until I was so sick of it, I thought
I'd barf every time I heard the word, "dream." Finally, I broke the record to smithereens and then, as punishment, had
to go and buy another copy of the dad-blamed thing for her with my own money! Life is so harsh! (Truthfully,
if I could have her back, I'd pay for as many copies as could be found and play them all day every day - to infinity!)

I thought of another one - one of those songs that
didn't get played much because it was "suggestive," but it's really good: "Sixty Minute Man."
I'll have it on a CD with me.
"Jim Dandy" (Lavern Baker)
"A Lover's Question" (Clyde McPhatter)
"Earth Angel" (The Penguins)
"Bee Bop A Lula" (Gene Vincent)
"Baby Let's Play House" (Presley)
(Eddie Fisher--not Eddie Arnold)
"Blueberry Hill" - Donny
(Johnson) and I used to really love dancing to this tune - and that guy could really dance!
"Great Balls of Fire!" Another really
great song to dance to.
"Unchained Melody" - So romantic!
Oh, gosh. Sorry. I have to add
"Love Me Tender" and "Love Me," both sung by Elvis. Why? My daughter is a professional
musician, and these are the only songs from my teen generation that she sang.

"At the Hop!" It was such a fun
song to dance to.
"I'M IN LOVE AGAIN!" This was another
song by Fats Domino that I liked, and do you guys remember . . .
"STRO - O- O-- LIN'" and the special strollin' dance? It was always on American
No Name Provided.
"THE DUKE OF EARL!" Hey! Why isn't The Duke of Earl on
Songs: "THE TWELFTH OF NEVER" and "COME, GO WITH ME" (Del Vikings) No one could hold still when it was playing!; Twelfth of Never (Johnny Mathis)my
personal most romantic song of the 50's; Anything by the Kingston Trio with Tom Dooley being my intoduction
to this amazing group who would sing me through college, marriage and little children (7 or 8 albums I think). Judy
