  Hi Diane!


 I forgot to mention all those songs on the list I posted were #1's during the years they were on the record charts.


 I don't know if you have iTunes downloaded (for free), but they have great podcasts for free and the one that I listen to to get this list is called: "Today In Music History".


Other podcast I downlaod are mostly blues related such as:


"Bandana Blues Show", "Indy Feed" Blues Music", "Mark Kerr's Blues Nation Radio Show", "Preying Lizard Music Road Rash Blues Show", "Rhinocast", "The Roadhouse", "Salty Dog Blues N Roots Podcast", "tBone Taxi Blues", and "Texas Blues Cafe".

  As far as I can remember, that was the dance.  If I am wrong, please somebody correct me.  Yeah, we had a teen-age dance every Friday night at the Eagles hall.  Cost a quarter apiece to get in.  Always had a live band.  After the dance everybody would cruise Main Street and then go to the Cozy Cafe.  That was a little drive in place.  On Saturday nights, it waqs usually the movies.  In the summer of course, it was the "old passion pit".  The drive-in theater.  LOL.  I came from a very small town out in Western Montana.  I think the total population of the county was maybe 15000 people.  My graduating class was                                                                                                                   20.                                                                                                                                                                                                 

  I will definately take your word for it as I just could not remember.


We had a half hour of "canteen" (don't know why it was called that) every day at lunch time at school and the girls always danced and practiced new steps and boys did dance too.  I grew up in a very tight Italian neighborhood even though we were Czech and those Italian boys loved to dance!!!  Those were the days of Dion and Frankie Vali and there were lots of greasers around : )  Then there were dances every Saturday at lots of the private halls; The Irish American club and the German Hall and the Chevy hall had the big ones.  All of my friend would be there and we had great times.  Like you there were the local eating places that everyone went to afterwards and yup summer was drive in time : )  Also, those were the days of the muscle cars and lots of street drag races and cruising the drive ins.


Wow that must have been nice in a lot of ways knowing everybody.  I lived in Cleveland and back in it's heyday it had a million people.  But our school was it's own little world and all the neighborhood kids were there.


To me, those were great times!  You?

That is a diverse list if I ever saw one and that was so nice of you to list all the songs.....


What a walk down memory lane


I am proud to say I know them all.  I too like all kinds of music and the whole big group that gets included under the Rock and Roll umbrella.


My first R and R was Elvis but then came THE STONES  : ) and things were never the same for me.  Then in my late high school years Motown was it and boy how many songs can you think of that are so completely different sounding but yet are R n R.

I can't imagine what "pull the wool" is referring to, or at least, I can't imagine anything suitable for a G-rated forum.  But the phrase, "Let's not be L-seven" refers to being a square.  Make a capital L with your left hand and form the number 7 with your right.  Now touch your fingertips together and you have a square. 

  Hey TV 


or should I call you Trader : )


Anyway you are one cool dude or wait didn't they used to say cool cat ? to know that L-seven reference.  Thanks for the fill in!  The whole song was just strange but I love it.


Another huge dancing song was The Lion sleeps tonight  and also Land of a Thousand Dances.  Then of course came the Twist craze.  : )   Wow, no wonder weight was never a problem for us teens back then.

Is that what is was?  I will definately take your word for it as I do not remember at all...  I do remember how popular dancing was when I was a teen. 


Did you have weekend dances where you lived?
