Agreed.

Here's a fairly recent (2003) video of Frankie Avalon singing his 1959 song Venus.

No matter what your age everyone thinks they know what 60's music is.

Thanks to the BBC and the music show, "Top of the Pops" - Now You Know!

Very nice ones, guys.

How about an instrumental? I know just the one!

Of course you would post maybe the best instrumental of the 20th century! Excellent one crow.

One of the most popular instrumentals from the 50's made a comeback in the 60's and still ranks of one of the strangest Top Ten Hits of American Radio.

Les Baxter and his Orchestra made instrumentals fun to listen to and I love the old magazine covers in this video, waay too funny!

Speaking of oldies and surf music, this video breaks down some of musics most notorious "rip-off" songs, including one from a more famous surf music group.

You love this signature.

Rip-offs versus cover versions.

You've got me thinking about an oldies song that made a comeback when I was in high school back in the 70's.
"The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is what I call this song but it goes by other names too.

The Tokens had the famous version but I like the 1971/1972 version by Robert John.
Oh lordy can this man sing!

Originality always wins.

But that's still a good version, edd.

Do YOU know about the bird?

What a performance!!! Dude is amazing.
So that's where that song comes from, I've never seen that video before. 



Well my friend, after that I think you need to kick-back and do a little, "Grazing In The Grass".
