Here's a music game with a twist! I'll start it with the song considered to be the first really popular rock 'n roll song:

1955 -- "Rock Around the Clock" -- Bill Haley and the Comets

The next poster would provide a song from 1956, including title and artist; the next one from 1957, and so on up to 1980, at which point we start back at 1955.

One song per post, please...

(that's what the postman did after the Marvelettes yelled "wait a minute, wait a minute!" She was returning the letter she was looking for! LOL!)

1965 -- California Girls -- The Beach Boys (as a native Midwesterner, those "farmer's daughters" really did "make you feel all right...")
