Down memory Lane

Postby ksl » Wed, 02 Jul 2008 10:01 pm

If it wasn't for all our pleasant memories of the good times, what would we do, I quite often flash back, when listening to music from my era, and to honest I can, just start giggling away to myself.

The wife thinks I'm a raving nut, although she's 14 years younger and doesn't realise what fun i had :oops: and some of the :oops: moments in my life, while walking home from dances, with a young chick on my arm, of course we always had to go through the grave yard, to seek out dracula on a winters night, I often remember them complaining of the early 19 century grave stones being so cold on their bottoms. :roll: God bless em.

Anyway I thought it was a good idea to start this thread, so you can take a trip down memory lane, by posting your favourite music links from youtube, so we can all, get a feeling of the moods you where all feeling in those precious moments! Lets all take a trip down memory lane.

I was born 1950, and at a young age, I recall my older brother and sister singing songs from the top 10 Radio Luxemburg, I guess it was around 1958 and Buddy Holly, Perry Como, Elvis, Duane Eddy, was all the rage

Buddy Holly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhgO8rZs1Fg Not sure, but i think he died in a plane crash

Perry Como http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ8RUE-GF4E

Elvis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpzV_0l5ILI

Duane Eddy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMz8XRGxZdY

Well that was really my brother and sisters time flashing bye.

And these few were from my time. Kinks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvyDWGF290M

At 15 it was Sonny & Cher http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hGlYT38DZY

These nutters where in Morecambe and i got the drum sticks, when he started to freak out. Keith Moon and The Who http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIG06saP ... re=related

At 17 it was some of this The Beatles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgTaH8PbeqM
