Memories of Music

Other than church hymns, my earliest memories of music are of Elvis, Little Richard, and Fats Domino. There were others, such as the Everly Brothers (I really liked “Wake Up Little Susie”) that I enjoyed, but mainly I remember these three from my early years.

I, like every girl of that era, loved Elvis. His mellow and sensuous voice seemed to be singing just to me. The other two were more for dancing. That was the time of the jitterbug and sock hops and Little Richard particularly got everyone to their feet. 

As we age music tastes and styles change, but my love of Elvis’ voice remains. Some of the other oldies are still favorites: Credence Clearwater Revival, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones, and Neil Young.

  1. My earliest recollections of music were classical composers. Mom LOVED classical music and when my siblings and I took piano lessons, so many of the tunes we played were of the great composers. I liked the Big Band Era music, and so many of the songs from the 50’s and 60s. To this day, though, it is classical which touches my very soul.

  2. I remember Elvis, Ricky Nelson and all those other heart throbs especially if they were in movies. But even further back I enjoyed Perry Como and songs like Catch a Falling Star, How Much Is that Doggie in the Window, Yoing Love and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.
    You brought back lots of happy memories of Dances and teen age romances. Thanks.

  3. I grew up with and loved “The Monkees” and “The Beatles”. I used to walk around the yard singing “I wanna be free” . I also loved a tragic love song called “Last Kiss”, but don’t remember who sang it.
    As I went into my teens and twenties, it was John Denver and Anne Murray, then Elton John. I still love all these singers.
