The 50s And 60s Was The Best Era For Music. Oh! Yes It Was!

The best music was from the 40's. 50's pretty good, 60's only fair.

Glenn Miller, Woody Herman, Harry James, The Dorsey bands, Lional Hampton, Les Brown, Charlie Barnet, Count Basie, Sammy Kay, Stan Kenton and dozens of others...all big in the 40's.

Yes, I agree. I could have brought the 40s into the thread title, but were do you draw the line?
Perhaps I would have said 'Arguably' bla bla bla.
But of course everyone has their favourite music era.:D

As far as I am concerned, post 40s music as well.
It doesn't bother me!

But I Do like Rock N' Roll!

BoozerCruiser, I love Rock & Roll music from the 50's, 60's and some from the 70's. That is what I listen to. Some of those pictures on the videos reminded me of the albums that I have. For example, American Graffiti. I have liked this style of music since I was a teenager and that has been a long time ago.

You sound like someone after my own heart.

Thank you for that AprilSun.
Now then, although this song is from 1970, it is one of my all time favourite songs.

I like 50's music, but not mid-late 60's music.
Yes RadishRose.

We all have our special era in respect of music.
My guess is that you will like this song then...(
Dream Lover (Bobby Darin)


"Dream Lover"



Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah, yeah)
A girl (yeah-yeah, yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah, yeah)
My own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone


Dream lover, where are you
With a love, oh, so true
And the hand that I can hold
To feel you near as I grow old
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah, yeah)
A girl (yeah-yeah, yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah, yeah)
My own (yeah-yeah, yeah)
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone


Someday, I don't know how
I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, I don't know how
She'll bring her love to me


Dream lover, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah, yeah)
A girl (yeah-yeah, yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah, yeah)
My own (yeah-yeah, yeah)
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone


Dream lover, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah, yeah)
A girl (yeah-yeah, yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah, yeah)
My own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone


Please don't make me dream alone
I beg you don't make me dream alone
No, I don't wanna dream
 
When you ask someone what their favorite musical eras was, you'll find out when they were a teenager. Let's see, I loved music from the early 60s to mid 60ish. That means I was about 13-14 in 1960.. Let's see 13 + 55 years since 1960= 68 Well, I was born in 1946, so I'm 69. BTW, you do know in 2055, PBS will be showing the all the old geezers from the 20teen music era, like Justin Beiber, for a pledge.

I'm most familiar with rock from the 60s, which I love, great time to grow up. I had an older sister, so we listened to rock from the late 50s too at my house, some good tunes there! I'm a big fan of rock and roll really from all the decades until present. Here's acouple of oldies many here will remember.
