Reminiscing 1957: The Music (532 words)
I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to describe, we just have to "go with the flow" so to speak and enjoy the feelings if they are indeed good memories.
It will be a song that will transport someone back to 1957 and a certain kiss, a certain boy or girl, or even a fleeting memory that you can't quite put a finger on.
Or better yet, write the letter to a child or grandchild and share 1957 with someone who means the world to you.
1957 The Everly Brothers (1688 words)
With 24 of G and T’s Top 40, 11 of the 16 #1 songs of 1957, and 18 of Billboard’s Top 30 being classified as rock and roll, the “new” music was clearly increasing in popularity in 1957.
The practice continued into 1957 with “Young Love,”; one of the best examples of a cover success and the most heated contest of two versions of the same song for the “Elvis Era.” Sonny James took the song to #2 with a country version that had a distinct rock and roll flavor.
In 1957 popular music came in four basic media: the 78 rpm 12” disk, the 45 rpm 7” disk, the LP -- 33 1/3 rpm 12” disk, and the EP -- 33 1/3 7” disk.
