Monday Videos - Rock and Roll

We have the smoooooth jazz station on, and for some reason a Fats Domino song was played. He doesn’t really fit in with the pattern, but it made me start looking up songs on YouTube and enjoying that old time music. Fats was well known for Blueberry Hill in 1956, along with a bunch of other hits.

Down in the Related Videos list so nicely supplied were some contemporaries that also had rockin’ songs. Jerry Lee Lewis

And the first rockabilly song, written by Carl Perkins in 1955, but I think Elvis’ version is more widely known.

And finally one more to keep your toes tapping, Bill Haley

Dare you to listen to those and not want to get up and dance, or sit and bounce and sing along.
