Sheet Music From the Fifties
I don't recognize "Melody of Love" but it was written in the fifties, so I snatched it for a buck at an antique store.
The only thing that I loved when I was living the fifties, was Mommy and Daddy and my thumb. But it must have been a pretty good decade to fall in love. In the 1950's, people still gathered around the piano at parties or sat side by side on the piano bench and crooned out some good ones.
So I took that piece of music and allowed myself to sit down at my neglected piano. Not only did this silly blog list motivate me to return to an instrument that I really do love. I took it a step further and I sang along. Corny? Yes. Comical? Very.
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
