Music Of 1955 Was Music

God gave us memories that we might have roses in December. ~J.M. Barrie

Music Of 1955

We had music that told of life and love and some saddness. Our music was played with many instruments and had a distinctive beat... We called them "toe-tappers". Our musical stars were beautiful or handsome and when theey entertained you it was a pleasant experience.
