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”
Find Me A Film

Let me know below 5 of your favourite films …
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

This coming Spring …… A New Snifty Sleuth Mystery will begin ………..

There has been a murder, a terrible Murder!!

Who Is The Victim?
Where Was The Murder Committed?
Who Is Guilty?
How Did They Do It?
What Was Their Motive?
What Was Their Murder Weapon?

  1. Hi Rory, thanks for the dedication. I could probably do with getting a new bag myself. 😆

    I remember as a kid, my mum watching the Andy Williams Show and I think he often ended it singing about Moon River. The show introduced the world to the Osmond Brothers too. Ha ha.
