Any love for the "Oldies but Goodies" here? Basically 50's rock.

My parents loved this music, so I kinda grew up with it. I really don't listen to it often, but when I went back home for Thanksgiving, I saw a box set, so burned it. I haven't listened to it all, but slowly making my way through it. As with anything, there is a mix of good, ok, and bad.

I guess if any of you all are looking for a starting point, the one I have seems to cover most ground:

"Runaround Sue" is one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

Recently, I woke up with this song stuck in my head and had to listen to it five times before my mind was satisfied:

I hate that "oldies" stations don't play "oldies" anymore. I was just in a Subway yesterday and they had on the local Oldies station, and I hear "INXS" :shake:

Its almost a lil sad that kids today cant flip on the radio and hear Elvis, Chuck, Jerry Lee, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and hell, even the great 60's music is slowly leaving the radio. Of course kids today don't even listen to the radio, so youd think the radio stations would keep playing the "real oldies" since its people my mothers age that still play the radio in their cars. Oldies should be 50s / 60s. Classic Rock should be 69ish - 89? INXS should never be on the oldies station :haha:

okay end of my rant.

I still enjoy some Elvis and Chuck Berry, and this, Jerry Lee Lewis classic, might be one of the best live albums ever recorded -

The greatest bridge I've ever heard in a pop song is the one in Pretty Woman. :heartbeat:

Becker and Fagen's first pre-Steely Dan gig was a writing job for Jay. They also toured with JATA. They would fuck with the guitar player and play every song a half-step high or low and make him think his guitar was out of tune.

Yes. One of the smoothest voices ever.

From the 60s not the 50s.

Roy Orbison is the bomb.

I think it's perfectly fine to lump '50's rock, Motown, soul, and dance tracks from the same era together under the "oldies" banner; they were all on the same station when I was a kid (Oldies 103.3 represent!).

Word.

Really Roy Orbison might be worthy of his own thread. That fucking guy...

There's a reason the second Willburys album isn't as good as the first...

Wait, this is a thread about "oldies." Who says oldies music is only 50's music? That's weird. And incomplete. I think Pretty Woman is absolutely an "oldie."
