I have not read his book, but it's on my bucket list. And I love You tube! Amazing what you can find on there!

I'll have to check some of these out. I'm liking YT these days, as well. Sometimes I remember the songs when I hear them, but don't remember who the artists were.

I will have to check out his playlist. Have you read the book he wrote?

 

Yes, I remember Jimmy Soul. He had one other hit, "Twistin' Matilda".

That was a fun list of songs, thanks for putting it together. I remember most of them. We always had the radio on in the mornings during breakfast and getting ready for school. Everyone seemed to enjoy the silly songs back then.

I like some of the songs, some I've not heard of. I love Monster Mash and have a soft spot for Snoopy and the Red Baron, the Christmas one. It was my husbands favorite Christmas song 💜

It's been a long time since I heard that Smokey song.

I used to have the "Make It Happen" LP.
