Released in 1966 the Good Vibrations oldies music lyrics was a #1 "Beach Boys song" and remains one of Brian Wilson's greatest songwriting accomplishments. Enjoy this vinyl record memory and First million seller from The Beach Boys.
Doo-Wop Oldies Music Lyrics to the Kenny Vance song, "Looking For An Echo" screams nostaliga and street corner music with soul with Vance singing "We practiced in a subway, In a lobby or a hall, Crowded in a doorway, Singing "doo wops" to the wall." Real talent no gimmicks.
The Conway Twitty story centers around music Lyrics to the song "It's only Make Believe" and how a young man feels about being in love with a woman who does not seem to be in love with him. It would be his only #1 song during his early Rock-n-Roll days.
The Locomotion Oldies Music Lyrics was written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King and made popular by Little Eva in 1962. The song is notable for appearing in the Top 5 three times, each in a different decade, the last by Australian Kylie Minogue in 1988.
The Sammi Smith oldies music lyrics brings back those great vinyl record memories and the song "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," a classic remake by several, but only Sammi is right there whispering into your year.
The Moon River Lyrics was written by Johnny Mercer to Henry Mancini's melody. How did one of the all time greatest movie songs become one of the most romantic songs ever written is a little confusing. Its lyrics never mentioned anything about love or romance.
The Jailhouse Rock Movie and "Loving You" were two of my three favorite Elvis movies. These two and the 1958 "King Creole" showcase a young Elvis at his best. If you ever wondered why Elvis was so popular, watch Jailhouse Rock. He defines cool.
The Mickey Gilley song "Doo-Wah Days" brings back those Vinyl Record Memories of his previous country crossover classics, "True Love Ways" and "Stand by Me." The seldom played 1986 oldies "Doo-Wah Days" charting in at #6, would be his final Top 10 hit.
Carl Perkins wrote the Blue Suede Shoes lyrics and the song became a rockabilly standard when first recorded by Perkins in 1955. Elvis did a great cover of the song in 1956 and charted at #20, but Carl Perkins self penned version rightfully finished at #1.
Patsy Cline songs are the voice of the average woman...the waitress at the diner, the counter girl at the all-night truck stop, or even the stay-at-home mom who stops to wonder what happened to all her dreams. Patsy Cline was their voice.
Patsy Cline loved the Lyrics to the song She's Got You and was so moved by the lyrics she memorized the song in one evening, recorded it and the song immediately became one of her favorite songs. The song, released in 1962, would be her second and final #1 on the charts.
The 1961 song "Crazy" by Patsy Cline will always be a reminder of just how good she was at expressing emotion in a song. Her rich contralto voice, along with her exceptional vocal phrasing, have made her one of the most iconic and influential singers of the 20th century.
The Velvets and the 1961 Super Doo-Wop Song, "Tonight (Could Be The Night)" can be heard chanting "doo-wop" behind lead singer, Virgil Johnson. In 1960 it was Roy Orbison who introduced the group to the attention of Fred Foster, president and founder of Monument Records.
Here's another Doo-Wop Oldies classic from 1957 titled Come Go With Me, made popular by The Del-Vikings vocal group. Another street corner original that will add a few Dom dom dom's to your music vocabulary. A time when song lyrics were creative, but also simple.
The Orlons oldies music formed the foundation of a golden era in Philadelphia music with songs like Wah-Watusi, Don't Hang up and South Street. The Orlons were actually discovered by high school classmate, "Dovells" lead singer Len Barry (remember the Bristol Stomp).
Thanks for an excellent musical experience. I found your website by accident and just kept enjoying one classic after another. Great job! Like yourself, I am still enjoying my vinyl collection. We share many of the same favorite artists. Regards,

Congratulations on an outstanding site. I am from the old school. I was 13 when Rock & Roll erupted in 1955. I would literally run home from school to watch Bandstand every day. I lived outside Philly and grew up with all the Philadelphia music scene and its performers. Keep up the good work and I thank you for your time and effort in keeping the old vinyl music alive for us and future generations.
