The '50s!


If you got any music videos from the '50s, feel free to post them here. The audio has to be from the '50s but the video doesn't necessarily have to be from the '50s. Post as many as you like. Any genre will do. Classical, rock, jazz, blues, gospel, country or whatever. I promise I won't laugh...

He's carrier spans the 40s to his premature death New Years morning 1953. So forgive me if some 40s stuff should slip in.

This one is dated the Kate Smith Evening hour in 1952.


Hank Williams - Hey Good Lookin'

This song was Hank Williams last single released just a month before he died on the backseat of his Cadillac stuffed with uppers and downers on his way to gig in Ohio.

Actually songs like Hank's we couldn't buy in post-war Denmark. Import restrictions all through the decade.

We had to do with stuff like THIS:


Raquel Rastenni - Jeg Rev Et Blad Ud Af Min Dagbog

An original from 1954. By many considered the first rock'n roll recording (tho iit ain't). I remember first time hearing it like it was yesterday. Not sure if it was in 57 or 58. It was at a friend's mothers birthday party. Her brother had been abroad and brought a 78' record, which we played all afternoon and night. Must have played it at least a hundred times. Just couldn't get enough. No wonder we would prefer it to Raquel Rastenni (horrible song, horrible sound) -- I just posted it so you could hear what we were up against.

If it wasn't for Rock'n Roll - the fifties would've been just HORRIBLE.


Bill Haley & The Comets-Rock Around the Clock

Here's something truely innocent. Believe it or not - it was considered rock back in those days.


Cliff Richard 195? - Travelin' Light

Here's another one by Cliff. A more rocky one. From when The Shadows was known as The Drifters. They had to change their name because of... well... The Drifters.

Cliff Richard and The Drifters - Move it (1958)

You know both of those cliff songs are from a movie called "Bongo Drums" of which not even Wiki has any entries. But I know it cause I saw it when I was 13 or 14. (ffb.u.16 - I managed to sneak in)

Yeah, here's something rockin' too, the inspiration for Elvis as well as Bob Dylan.


BUDDY HOLLY & The Crickets --- Oh Boy ...1957

This number is genrally agreed upon as being the first Rock'n Roll number. Written in 1951 by Ike Turner at the Riverside Hotel in Clarksdale, Mississippi. That's were R'nRoll was born
...BUT according to Wiki it is thought to be based on a 1947 number called "Cadillac Boogie".
