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...
