It Was A Great Time To Be Alive!

Music Of The 1950's

The decade of the Fifties gave birth to Rock and Roll. When Bill Haley's Rock Around The Clock became popular in 1955, the nation learned to swing to a whole new sound.

But, Rock wasn't the only music of the Fifties. Other artists with other songs had folks hummin' for much of the decade. Pat Boone, Perry Como and Patti Page - just to mention the "Ps".

The feel-good innocence of a lot of the Fifties music reflects on the post World War II optimism in America. The young people of the time, an emerging force called teenagers, hadn't struggled through the war years. They were looking for something more exciting. They discovered that vitality in Rock and Roll.
