Baby-boomers and others from the new generations are passionate about the music in their life. They love to listen to the songs that were popular when they were kids. Fifty’s music? Sam the Sham Wooly Bully, Mark Dinning and Teen Angle, Buddy Holly with Peggy Sue and The Louvin Brothers Red Hen Hop.
The Beach Boys are always on top of anyone’s dance list with Sloop John B, or how about a nice slow dance with the Carpenters Close to You. Listen to Barry Manilow’s Greatest Songs of the Sixties.
For the Fifty’s big band/swing music was popular, but vocal driven classic pop quickly replaced this genre. Mitch Miller brought country, Western, rhythm and blues, and folk music into the music of the Fiftys. Singers like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney and Dean Martin were the bomb.
Rock and Roll quickly took over the 1950s and mixed black music of rhythm and blues plus pop. The electric guitar became the instrument of choice, and the awesome sounds of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Bill Haley and His Comets (Rock around the Clock) caused a national stir.
The British invasion came to American music with a British act that would quickly take control of the American pop scene and inspire a generation of future pop stars. Young singers in Nehru jackets and mop tops stole America’s heart. The Beatles are as famous and inspiring today as they were in the Sixties.
1970 saw the rise of disco. Smooth jazz, soul, and jazz fusion still was popular, but disco was “where it is at.” Rock music played an important part in the music scene with punk rock, glam hard, rock and progressive rock plus heavy metal taking over the music world. Experimental classical and minimalist music was being composed, and film scores started to become popular.
The 1970 music was popular for its contributions to electronic music and the continued development and use of synthesizers and harmonizers.
Seventies music means hard rock with innovative pop stars like Frank Zappa, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and The Ramones. Softer rock introduced Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, The Jackson 5. Elton John and a hundred more bands.
Glam rock developed in the UK and traveled to the US with outrageous clothes, makeup, and platform-soled boots, plus quirky makeup. Pioneers of glam rock include David Bowie, Mott the Hoople, and .
Progressive rock developed in the late 1960s into the 1970s and was designed to elevate rock to artistic credibility. Progressive rock is characterized by the Moody Blues, King Crimson plus Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd and Emerson. Remember Nights in White Satin, and the Dark Side of the Moon?

The greatest singing duo in country music history, Charlie and Ira Louvin may also be the music's first great traditionalist throwbacks, recording simple string-based music in the 1950s as honky-tonk was at its peak and Countrypolitan was on the rise, doing more with the bedrock power of their clarion voices than any slick recording could ever accomplish. Religious, path-walking Charlie and angry alcoholic Ira lived out the sin-salvation dichotomy the duo explored in songs like "The Christian Life" (later covered by the Byrds on Sweetheart of the Rodeo ) and "The Kneeling Drunkard's Plea" (which was covered by Johnny Cash). The Louvins recorded furiously, releasing three albums in 1958 alone, peaking with the 1959 landmark Satan Is Real , for which they constructed a massive cutout of the devil and set a pile of tires aflame in the classic cover art. .
