I was thinking the other day of how aromas can bring you back to a certain time in the past like, the smell of the street after it rains on a hot summer’s day, or the aroma of the air on a crisp fall day and so on. And that got me thinking how music can bring you back to a memory from the past as well!
Besides Elvis, the Everly Brothers had a great sound and tight harmonies and great songs like, “Wake Up Little Susie”, “bird-dog” and more. Rock and Roll was in full swing and my favorite female singer at that time was Connie Francis with her hits” Who’s Sorry Now” Stupid Cupid” playing on the radio.
And that brought me back to the day I ran in at the tavern my Father worked part-time at just around the block from my house, to ask for a nickel or a dime to go the Mom’s next door and Connie was on TV singing “who’s Sorry Now” and I said to myself “she’s the best girl singer ever”! Then ran out the door for my treats .
To me the Everly Brothers were the Beatles of that time, and even they were influenced by them with the wonderful music of the 1950s! It’s funny when I was living in the times then, I didn’t know it was the fabulous 50’s! as It’s now referred to or look around saying wow how great is this!
But there was something about it and you could feel it, it’s only as the years pass you look back and say, Yes it really was a special time! and just imagine I was one of the lucky ones to be there when it was all happening!
