DECADES - The Fifties - 1953

We are introducing a new feature at Tune Doctor and as always we hope you will contribute to this section. We are calling it Decades and it will feature every now and again:

The idea is to pick a year from a Decade and give a couple of tracks from that year, we/you can mention 2 events historical or anything that takes your fancy, your film of the year, your album of the year, a personal event you remember and finally a sporting event from that year.

To start it of, as I was actually alive during 1953 and of course as it is the Queens Diamond Jubilee. That is the year I have chosen.

DECADE 50's - YEAR 1953

HANK WILLIAMS - Your Cheatin' Heart,



BIB MAMA THORNTON - Hound Dog


FILM OF 1953

The Wild One - starring Marlon Brando

EVENTS of 1953

Queen's Coronation


Everest being Conquered

SPORTS EVENT

Stanley Mattews Cup Final

ALBUM OF 1953


LEADBELLY - Last sessionns Vo l2

PERSONAL EVENT

Although I was only 4 but I do remember the Coronation, all the bunting and the Mugs with picture of the Queen. Still remain a vivid memory. One of the first things I rember.


Let us know if you like this section and if you would like to conribute witth your favourite year.

Great idea and fine song choices to start it all off, sir. I wasn't around but my brother was born that year, so it must have been OK! Looking forward to more vintage years from the Tune Doctor team.

SB - thanks for the comments...it is just an idea and suppose it does not task the brain cells to do...was of course not aware of music at that age but well I am sure that would have been my choices if I was!
