We Grew Up in a Great Time

Nov 08, 2013

I feel sorry for everyone under age 50...

because they did not grow up with the wonderful songs of our era.

Most of the songs were about either love or lost love.

Here’s two of my favorites from that period; one of each type.

Both songs feature something lost from the past 20 years…………..letters! 

Today’s version would have to be about Text Messaging or Facebook and would include violence and X-rated lyrics.

The first one is by a typical 50’s group, called The Hilltoppers, because they were students at Western Kentucky University.

The second one is by two great Country Singers.  Duets has been a staple of country music for more than 60 years.
