One, Two, Awayback We Go

Mr. Peabody is providing a 1950's lecture to Sherman and it goes something like this:

1, Can't Help Fallin In Love Elvis
2, Tennessee Waltz Patti Page
3. Catch A Falling Star Perry Como
4, Ring of Fire Johnny Cash
5, Angel Eyes Four Freshmen
6, Mambo Italiano Rosemary Clooney
7, Little Darlin' The Diamonds
8, Blue Suede Shoes Carl Perkins
9. Set The world On Fire The Inkspots
10, I'm walkin' Fats Domino

We end with a better work from Fats Domino than Blueberry Hill. Ring of Fire slipped in but only because Johnny Cash was recording with Sam back in the 50's. Started with two great love songs from that era. Yes, for you young whipper-snappers, rosemary Clooney is George's mother, but you all knew that already, didn't you. A personal favorite is Little Darlin' and of course while I am old, I am not, technically, this old. However, the magic here is that my sister required a dance partner for those afternoons when homework was done and Bandstand was on. Yikes!
