Pop Music in the 50s


Elvis Presleyshakes his hips on The Ed Sullivan Show, and the rock n roll craze begins. For those scandalized by such unwholesomeness, there’s always nice young men like Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka, whose teen-idol sound is pleasant enough for parents but still makes young girls swoon. Dion takes the doo-wop route while The Everly Brothers mix down-home sounds into their country-flavored pop songs and if anybody needs a laugh, The Chipmunks are on hand with a little novelty fun for everyone.

  1. Found your website by checking on Keds sneakers.
    Reason for checking: article in recent German newspaper about Converse sneakers but as a child in the 50s we only had Keds in our neighborhood and yet only Converse comes into the media.

    Did you forget to add pegged pants or did I miss it in your list?
