There's Just Something About The 50s

December 30th - A Song From Your Childhood

    Let me start by saying NO I am not that old. Like most children I grew up listening to the songs my parents played. My mom used to play records (yes vinyl records) of the songs she enjoyed as teenager when I was little. This was one of my favorites. Perhaps because of the funny high pitched monster voice, I don't know. But listening to songs like this as a child no doubt contributed to my love of weird & unusual music.

Purple People Eater - Sheb Wooley

    Another favorite from that era for me is this little diddy. Whenever I heard one of these I would always ask mom to play the other right after. Sometimes she did and sometimes she didn't.

Beep, Beep - The Playmates

   Oddly enough both of these songs are from 1958. I hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past. Take care of those you love and have an awesome day!


  1. My dad also played "Purple People Eater" for my sister and me. We loved it. I also introduced it to Truman. His favorite parts are when the Purple People Eater speaks, because it sounds like the Chipmunks.

  2. I think that's probably what I liked the most as well. Squeaky voices play big to children.
