Top 20 Rockabilly Songs 1950 – 1960

Our challenge for the month of March is to create a Top 30 Rockabilly Songs List – 1950 – 1960

Rockabilly was an early form of Rock music which began as a genre in the early to mid 50’s and petered out by the later 50’s when Roll and Roll kicked off into popularity.

Rockabilly artists of note were Elvis Presley, Wanda Jackson, Billy Adams, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbinson and Bill Haley to name but a few. So you have a good selection of artists to use and drop suggestions in the comments section below!

Welcome to Mixitup and Playme Now!
Season 3 – 2021 – 1stQ – Game 8 Promo

Do you remember the days of creating your own playlists on cassette tapes?? Wasn’t that awkward? I used to have to listen to the Top 40 on a Sunday and wait for my favourite songs to come up on the radio. The secret was to record the song you wanted and you had it captured on tape for future enjoyment for either your cassette player or as the years progressed your Walkmans.

All so antiquated now in consideration to the likes of our digital progressions eh? But good fun – and a real challenge to create the perfect recording, the perfect tape and of course – the perfect playlist mix!

Mixitup and Playme Now as a game is all about creating the perfect playlist but with a small twist and that is ‘to create a themed playlist only!’

Our task is to create a Themed Playlist containing
Song titles to the Theme of …

“To Be, or Not To Be …… That is the Question”

I know, l know, how can you pick? Well, you’ll have noted l haven’t asked for your Top 5 …. just 5 of your favourites.

Let me know below please. Thanks

  1. Hi Rory! Fantastic songs. Thank you so much for the Shoutout and song dedication.
    I think a few of my favorite movies are;
    Lord of the rings
    Star Wars ( the original series )
    Gone with the wind
    Raiders of the lost ark
    Marvel movies ( all of them)
    Any movie with Tom Hanks.

    1. Hey MaSadje, good morning to you 🙂

      You are very welcome. Furthermore, here’s wishing you a truly lovely afternoon 🙂

      A grand selection of choice, many thanks 🙂

  2. Hi Rory, how’s tricks? A nice pleasant Sunday it looks here.

    My five choices of film are I hope an unusual collection for your consideration;

    I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang, 1932 starring Paul Muni.
    it’s a powerful, gripping drama about a man trying to rebuild his life and career despite being a fugitive from the law.

    Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, with Jacques Tati
    The late film critic, Roger Ebert, describes this as like visiting old friends. It was one of his favourites too.

    sometimes defined as a “ramen western”, in a nod to “spaghetti westerns”, but it’s a humorous tale of a trucker helping a widow become the best noodle shop cook in the district. There are short stories within the main story which are excellent in themselves.

    The Visitor, with Richard Jenkins.
    a heartfelt drama about a professional man coming to terms with losing his wife and returning to the city only to find a hapless illegal immigrant couple living in his apartment.

    Cool Hand Luke
    Paul Newman at his best with an immense supporting cast and brilliant storyline.

    1. Hey Good morning Ian 🙂

      You have sun? We have grey here, so here’s wishing you a lovely Sunday.

      Interesting film lineup – l know Cool Hand Luke, Newman 1967, because a few of my favourite actors are also in the film, Harry Dean Stanton and Dennis Hopper.

      I also know I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang, 1932 as l have seen it. So, a good selection indeed.

      Many thanks.

    1. Hello and good morning to you too Master K, l emailed you last night, on the other email, because l misplaced your actual email – could you send me that in response please?

      As to the song?

      Of course, l was a fan of Fairground Attraction 🙂

  3. 5 of my favorite movies? I guess I’ll pick the ones I’ve watched again and again and…
    1. Moonstruck
    2. Now, Voyager (I know, corny as all get out but…)
    3. My Life – Michael Keaton movie (1993) – (again, corny)
    4. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
    5. Holiday (1938)
    6 And can I have a 6th please, please, please? Once Around (1991)
