What kind of music do you guys like?
I have a weird mix that consists of: Norwegian folk, opera, classical, Balkan, 60's, and 80's.

50s and early 60s rock'n'roll (not to be confused with rock!)
Those are my favorites from my misspent youth, but my tastes are pretty far-ranging.

Short music story: I loved the music that was background for the "Beef:It's what's for dinner" commercials in 1992.
While watching the Olympics that year, I was surprised to hear one of the synchronized swimming teams using that music.
Now, I know those teams practice routines for years but at that time the commercials had been on only a few months. Therefore, thinks I, the music must not be new!
Went to my CD collection and found it on the first try: Part of Aaron Copeland's "Rodeo" ballet.

elaborate on this please Erv?
my favorite band of that time would probably have to be CCR, although they were more late 60's early 70's

I do like CCR but the music I'm talking about was made by Bill Haley and the Comets, Little Richard, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, The Crewcuts and early Elvis (to name only a few) - the people who gave birth to rock'n'roll.

I even have to give credit to Pat Boone for introducing white audiences to what turned out to be 'sanitized' versions of Little Richard's music.

It was a great time to be a teenager.

I bet it was. The most our generation knows is what we gathered from Grease, American Graffiti, lol and my my favorite- the Porky's series!

Yep. Great soundtracks on all of them.
Here's a bit of trivia from that time (Google is down so I can't be sure of dates):

Within the past five years or so, you probably heard a current singer or group doing a number called "Santa, Baby".

In 1954 (?) Eartha Kitt's recording of it was considered too sexy for most radio stations.

Times change.

Have to agree with Erv, '50s and '60s rock and roll. Remember when I started the thread on the "other" forum when we would give the first line of the song and you had to guess the song and artist? Right after that I was Sad banned. afro

Was that when you posted the first line of "Roll Me Over In The Clover"?

Here is a good link, Erv, to listen to while surfing the net. A bunch of oldies stations on the web.

I can also mention that I like some Big Band music, too, even though it was dying out as I reached the age of discernment (puberty to you, Duke).
The Glenn Miller revival that accompianied the movie bio continued for a couple of years; then a movie bio of Benny Goodman introduced me to more great music, including "Sing,Sing,Sing" (that's the music you hear in the current GE commercial with the baby elephant dancing through GE plants; only commercial I ever wished lasted longer.)

One question has always intrigued me: the musical "West Side Story" premiered in 1957 but, of course, was conceived and written several years prior to that. (You just don't do those things overnight.) So what I wonder is this: had it been written only a year or two later, would the great jazz score have been rock'n'roll instead?

I just got a new DVD today called RICKY NELSON SINGS. It is really great. It show Ricky doing a lot of his hits from on Ossie and Harriet plus other ones. The part I like are the interviews with James Burton and Kris Kristoferson as well as his 3 sons and daughter. Plus Gunner and Mathew join James burton to play "Its late" and "I Believe". His son sounds just like him. bounce

I like most every song Ricky ever did.
And in spite of what some critics say, his performance in "Rio Bravo" was right on target (in some small respects the director had him channeling Montgomery Clift's character in "Red River" but that's all right: same director.)

The fashion of the times called for a "teen idol" to be inserted in every movie where it was possible in order to increase the audience. It worked in "Rio Bravo" and Fabian did an all right job in "North To Alaska" but Frankie Avalon seemed almost an embarassment in "The Alamo".

Avalon sucked in the Alamo. Ricky would have been way better.
