It's very hard to find these songs nowadays, whether it be torrents are going to a record store. I am looking for songs that have a certain sound to them but I can't clearly describe what it is.

Some of my favorite songs are "Last Kiss" by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers, "Teenager in Love" by Dion and Belmonts, and "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King. These 3 songs all emit the same kind of feel/mood when I listen to them, and I'm looking for more songs that sound like these. Any suggestions?

Some other songs I have that are somewhat similar are "Dyer Maker" by led zeppelin, "anytime you want me" by the who, a few beatles songs, and "since I don't have you" by guns n roses (the original skyliners version is also really good in my opinion).

so yeah any ideas?

check out the "pulp fiction" soundtrack. Particularly "surf rider" by the lively ones. I am not sure whether these are from the 50s or 60s but it might be what you were looking for.

"I Won't Stand In Your Way" - Stray Cats.

It's in the 50's style, but it was recorded some time in the 80's I think.

Hurrah for 80's Rockabilly revival.

No. That's 60's surf music. Not 50's "doo-wop" like the dude asked for.

So I had to take a massive dump, and I went in the bassment. So it's been down there for a while and the stench is terrible and i think it's seeping into the floor.

Just listen to an oldies radio station for awhile, should get plenty of ideas.
