Well, here it is. The first one. The start of something hopefully special. Ten tracks for your delectation.
I’ve decided to go with a theme, and that theme is 50’s Rock n Roll:
1) Twenty Flight Rock – Eddie Cochrane
The song that got Paul McCartney into The Beatles!!
2) Johnny B. Goode – Chuck Berry
That song that Michael J Fox did in Back To The Future!
3) That’ll Be The Day – Buddy Holly & The Crickets
The birth of the singer-songwriter, sort of!
4) Tutti Frutti – Little Richard
Powerful piano playing!
5) Heartbreak Hotel – Elvis Presley
The King !
6) Ain’t That A Shame – Fats Domino
Roly-poly Rock n Roll!
7) Great Balls of Fire – Jerry Lee Lewis
Hammering the crap out of a poor piano!
8) Be-Bop-A-Lula – Gene Vincent
He was in the US Navy, you know!
9) Wake Up Little Susie – The Everly Brothers
Nice clean-cut music!
10) Move It – Cliff Richard
Just to show that Brits could have a go too!
Hope you enjoy a trip back in time, and good luck finding them in the Itunes store!!
