ok... the talent show at my school's theme is 50, (since it's the 50th aniversary)

sooooo...I need to find a good song from the 1950's... I already have Johnny B. Goode in my mind (back to the future ftw!). Something up tempo with a solo is preferred but anything's fine.

any suggestion?

Almost nobody on this site enjoys 50 cent and that doesn't make sense anyway.

Earth Angel by the Zombies (I think...) would be great if you needed a slow song... Back to the Future again... Maybe some Buddy Holly?

Do a polka, 50 years of music.

Do a part of a famous song from each decade starting from the 50s.

Johnny B Goode for the ****ing win. But any good ol' Chuck Berry song would be great.

Also Long Tall Sally, maybe some Buddy Holly or something. I guess all this has been said before but whatever.

Just do Stray Cats-Rock This Town. It may not be from the 1950's, but its a damn good rockabilly song that is a big crowd pleaser depending on how energetic your band is.
Be cool.

Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Phil Phillips, Fats Domino. You really can't miss with any of these.

Specifically, try "Ooh my Head" by Ritchie Valens.

Thinking of the Clash's cover. Buddy Holly wrote it.

Actually Sonny Curtis wrote it. Buddy Holly was dead when the Crickets recorded it. And I owe you an apology because it was released in '59. Right decade. Bobby Fuller made it a hit in the '60s though. That was the one that popped into my mind.

You have to do Chuck Berrys Duck Walk, and do Johnny B Goode. its probobly the most well known song of that era for kids today.

And see if you can Rent/Borrow a Gibson ES-335 to play

It's sad how Carl Perkins is so often overlooked in these kinds of things. He WROTE Blue Suede Shoes, you know. Um, a few others, Honey Don't, Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby, Matchbox, all good rockabilly stuff.

The Beatles covered a fair number of his songs, those recordings might be easier to find.

uhm, obviously "Rock Around The Clock" by Bill Haley and The Comets, mega classic.

also, do "La Bamba" because everyone loves it, even if they don't know it
