Throwback Thursday Again!

Yes, it’s Throwback Thursday again and we have an 11-song, 35-minute medley filled with memories!

We’ve got several #1 songs on this date, including a country chart topper that my surprise you. Several songs were either recorded or released on January 26, including Buddy Holly’s first recording back in 1956. A Catholic Bishop had a very poor sense of timing, and there’s a lot more!

Just so you know, Friday is going to a rock and roll blast!

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

    Another awesome selection and I never knew (or if I did I’d forgotten) about the Priest banning the twist. Have a great day!

    This one was another fantastic medley, with the righteous Brothers, no less! I’ve always loved their presentations. I think I could listen to them for hours. But moving right I don’t remember Buddy Holly song or at least I don’t remember hearing it. I’ve always adored The Four Seasons in their harmonizing, so of course, I love this. Men At Work was a real treat, haven’t heard them for a while. I especially loved hearing Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, with islands in the stream. Such a powerful song with beautiful drums. I don’t know if you know that, but I have a thing for drums. And ending with Elton John, and the crocodile rock, I might still be rockin!! This was totally a fun medley, with some great dancing, and singing, along with routines. Ray, what can I say you’re the best! 🥰

      Thank you, Sandy! 🥰
      I’m very happy to know you enjoyed this! It was a bit of an adventure as I threw everything at you! By the way, if you love drums, make sure you listen to Rock & Roll Friday!

    Good selections again today, Ray. Tha Righteous Brothers and Chubby Checker are tops in my book. As for Flatt and Scruggs, pretty good Banjo picking, I think!

      Flatt & Scruggs good pick it, that’s for sure!

    I know I don’t comment every time but I do listen to these medleys every day, sometimes more than once which I did today … (3rd time I think .. LOL)
    Great medley, love how it started ..wait for me …
    I don’t think the Bee Gees have gotten the recognition they deserve for their singing and song writing and so much more, just my opinion.
    Your sixteen .. I barely remember being 16 .. lol
    OMG .. memories of sitting in front of the boob tube to watch the Beverly Hillbilies .. I had no idea this song even charted 🙂 to finish with Elton John .. crocodile rock .. love it!!
    Am a bit slap happy from exhaustion so this is likely the most comment you will get from me this week.
    Have a great night and I look forward to what you have for us tomorrow.
