Classic baby! Actually this song is written in 1947, done by many, but this version is actually considered by many musicians to be one of the first examples of Rock N Roll. Elvis. Please don't be racist!

:Broncos:

I had the full intention of disputing this 1965 thing but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I got laid for the first time in 65, Had a chevy II that ran 11.12 at old Irwindale drags, got my first Dewey Weber surfboard in 65, I could go on and on, but all I can remember BEFORE 65 was shoveling snow in Upsate New York.

you don't have to be an older person to know and enjoy oldies. i am 25 and grew up listening to my mom's old records and the music she liked. also when you consider that current music of the last decade or so has sucked balls, a person should know classics.

personally i have always been a Bobby Darin fan. Gotta love Mack the Knife

Turn, Turn, Turn.

Dylan's entire work up 'til that time.


Here's a good start. His set list for the Royal Albert Hall in 1966.
(backed by The Band). Buy it. It's incredible.

1."She Belongs to Me"
2."4th Time Around"
3."Visions of Johanna"
4."It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"
5."Desolation Row"
6."Just Like a Woman"
7."Mr. Tambourine Man"
Electric Half
1."Tell Me, Momma"
2."I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)"
3."Baby, Let Me Follow You Down"
4."Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"
5."Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat"
6."One Too Many Mornings"
7."Ballad of a Thin Man"
8."Like a Rolling Stone"


My God. Visions of Johanna still gives me chills. Desolation Row. Ballad of A Thin Man. Incredible music.

Atkins made it look easy, didn't he?

Django was so fluid, so ahead of his time (not to mention he was short a couple fingers).

Now we are talking my era. Rockabilly!!!!! Many songs had hints of sex from the great artist like Chuck Berry but I dont think anyone came out this blatant (sic?) on selling one rocking song that could be done on a strip pole. In 1958, this song was banned from many juke boxes and of course no radio play. Catchy, fun and oh so naughty.
http://www.spinthegroove.com/2010/07/john-jackie-little-girl.html

One of my fav rockabilly singers and like so many in the era, died in a car accident. Everyone knows this song and many great ones from Eddie Cochran.

First one to chart was early 50s and it was from Bill Haley and the Comets. Bought the record just last May at a Garage Sale for a $1. Worth at least $20 to $35.

Johnny Horton who sang many ballads that you might know like North to Alaska (John Wayne) and Sinking of the Bismarck had some great hits in the 50s. This one is a remake of Moon Mulligan's hit from the 40s. Much better for those into rock n roll when Horton did it.
Johnny Reb for ya southern boys.

I met a kid at the uso in Fayetteville in fall of 66. He played the piano, this was his favorite piece. He really made that out of tune pos sound good.

I love Sam Cooke, especially A Change is Gonna Come.

Me too. Love the way he blended R&B and R&R. Wish he'd stayed around another fifty yrs.^5

Otis Redding too.

Oh yeah. Haven't heard him in a long time. No cd's of him just the old 33's down in the basement. Everybody tells me not to play them anymore because they're so rare. ^5

Atkins made it look easy, didn't he?

Django was so fluid, so ahead of his time (not to mention he was short a couple fingers).

Also though Django was a ladies man. Dude was a pimp! He was ultra cool.

This thread would have been better and easier to post in if the time period was defined better, having to choose from 500 years of tempered music (not to mention the ethnic rhythms and drones that have passed through the centuries) to choose from is kinda tough.

I would start with Bach, Brandenburg Concerto
Mozart - Wind Serenades\Divertiminti
Beethoven - Anything
Wagner - Gotterdammerung, Parsifal, Tannhauser, Die Meistersinger
Stravinsky - Anything minus some of the 12 tone stuff

I always liked the Tinpan Alley stuff and the great song books of Gershwin, Berlin, Porter etc...

I am partial to Paper Moon, Blue Heaven, Stardust, September Song among others.

The early Beatle songs are among the strongest and well crafted of their career.

Lots of good folk and early rock periods in the early 60's and 50's.
Then there is a lot of great jazz:
Miles Davis's Kinda Blue and Bill Evans Portraits in Jazz are epic, Duke Ellington, Miller, Count Basie, Bix Beiderbecke, others have mentioned Django and Pops (Louis Armstrong).

Just too much great stuff to mention.

I wasn't sure how big people were on classical music here. I figured I could start another thread with 1965 - 1980.

I think the schisim occurred in 1967 With the release of Pet Sounds and St Peppers.

So you could go with a 1967-1980

Then 1955 - 1967 When Elvis met Co Tom Parker through 1966 there was a whole folk music revival along with the birth of rock and roll with Haley's Rock Around the clock which was recorded in '54 but took off in '55 so anything '55-'67 would be good. Jazz had some seminal albums that came out around there and movements like Bop and modal. We could talk about how TV changed the way Rock was presented to the masses with shows centered around a hit song like Johnny Angel by Chelli Fabrees (Donna Reed Show -Donna was HOT!) and the Ozzie and Harriet show who featured the 1st Justin Beever.

Then I would go 1911 (Alexanders ragtime band) through 1955. You would get a lot of groups like Les Paul and Mary Ford and the post vaudville muscials which filled the American song book which is still mined from today. Cole Porter, Roders Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein great song books.

We then need a thread for each period of "classical" music if we wanted.

This one is version-specific, more Armstrong's talent that the songwriter.
In the hands of a mere mortal, this song would be more Sesame Street
than classic.
