Menu -- The Old Songs

I've always love the old songs. I feel now a days very few songs are being written that will stand the test of time. As catchy as some are I wonder what Americans will be singing 50 or 100 years from now?

That got me to thinking, and I came up with a list of the most recognized songs that were first published before the start of the "Rock Era" beginning in 1955.

Below is a list of some of the most recognizable songs and the year they were published. I put a bit of trivia in with each song. I think most people will know most of these songs.

My next project will extend from 1942 - 1945. These are the World War II years for America. Check back shortly for this

As you read you may not be familiar with many terms. I have included a section of "terms" and "defintions" so you can better understand what you are reading. For instance you will see the term "vaudeville" quite a lot. Do you know what that is? If not look click the link for terms and look for the link about vaudeville.
