This page titled Oldies Music Lyrics takes you back to those "Lost in the Fifties" days and those wonderful old songs that currently receive very little, if any, radio play in today's fast paced digital world.
Let me slow it down a little for you and ask you to return with me back in time to those great old songs we grew up with during the golden age of vinyl records.
I still believe there is a place somewhere on your radio dial that takes you back to this very special time and place in history..
This first song is a remake of the original fifties tune and released as a country song by Ronnie Milsap. It is Milsap's re-recording of his 27th no. 1 record from 1985 "Lost in the 50s Tonight." Praised by fans and critics alike, "Lost in the 50s Tonight" remains one of Milsap's signature tunes. And after all these years its impeccable melody is still hard to fault.
This Lost in the Fifties remake ended up song of the year and #8 on the adult contemporary charts.
I started with this song because of the video and how close it relates to the fifties and one of my favorite Doo-Wop songs "In the Still of the Night" by the Five Satins.
I simply dragged it out of the eighties and put it in the fifties where I believe it has a better fit.
The late 50s through the early 60s was filled with music that makes you feel good and smile. It takes us back to a simpler, more innocent time when cars, clothes, dances and friends were important.
enjoyed the break-up and make-up songs, the happy songs, the feel good
songs, and vocal group classics... these songs sound even better today
because they're timeless.
Remember when your girlfriend accepted your class ring, it was so cool to go steady, and how everything felt so right slow dancing to "In The Still of the Night" by The Five Satins.
Enjoy this version of this wonderful old song and relive the memories of those teenage years.
Lost in the Fifties - In The Still of the Night
Written by Fred Parris, Mike Reid, and Troy Seals
Close your eyes baby...follow my heart
Call on the mem'ries...here in the dark
We'll let the magic...take us away
Back to the feeling....we shared when they'd play
In the still of the night...hold me darling
Hold me tight...oh, shoo-doop, shoo-be do
shoo-doop, doo; so real...so right
Lost in the fifties tonight
These precious hours...we know we can't survive
Love's all that matters...while the past is alive
Now and for always, till time disappears
We'll hold each other...whenever we hear
In the still of the night, hold me darling
Hold me tight...oh, shoo-doop, shoo-be do
shoo-doop, doo; so real, so right
Lost in the fifties tonight...
