Hit Songs From The 50s

O.K., I know what you’re thinking. This website is supposed to be about music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. So why am I now including the 50s? What happened is that, after I finished the 80s, I was on a roll so I decided to go back even further in time. About the only things I remember about the 50s are that I had a crush on Diane Meyers in the third grade at P. S. 116 in Queens, N.Y., and all the television shows were in black and white. If you would like to know any other facts about the 50s, click here.
