I go on YouTube & listen to a) instrumentals or b) oldies songs
pretty often.
One of my favorite singers is Ken Curtis who, like Roy Rogers,
was once a lead singer with Sons of the Pioneers.

In those days, western music was ballads, beautiful, soothing.
Then almost overnight, maybe even in the 50's, the style began
to change. It became Country-Western music ... they'd all sing
it thru their noses to make it sound whiney, I guess. { ugh:( }
Well, not Johnny Cash ... he's himself.

I like Harv Presnell, too, who would sing several different styles.


... oooOO}{OOooo ...

BRENDA ... I remember these songs because I'm old. How the heck do YOU remember them?

OONJ, have any specific titles to share? I wouldn't mind listening.

OF course, there were the novelty songs too. Some of the were funny, some were silly, and one was downright creepy. Do you remember

"I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn" (Little Nash Rambler)

"Or would you like to swing on a star? Carry moonbeams home in a jar?"

"My mommy said not to put beans in my ears" (which we, as children, perverted to "My mommy and daddy put beans in their rears" ... which we NEVER sang around our parents!)

And the creepy one "'I love you! I love you!' said the little blue man. 'I love you! I love you to bits!'"

In the other thread (Coffee!) you mentioned all the old radio shows. I only remember a few - we were too little to stay up and listen to some of them, but I do recall the intro to Gunsmoke (I think) on the radio, as well as The Shadow.

What I recall is having to get up on cold dark winter mornings for school (ugh!) and listening to The Farm Report on the prices of wheat, corn, hogs, and freshening cows.

It sure was a different time back then. Sigh.

My only real exposure to the oldies was the Fallout franchise. There's some pretty sweet songs in there from around the 40's or so in Fallout 3.

That's the only game in the series that I've played, so I don't really know the full story, but I believe that this is the era of music being played in that universe because WWII was devistating and basically the end of the world for anybody not benefiting from the US government vault-tec systems. A generation or two lived in these vaults before they started making their way back out onto the surface where the wildlife has been grossly mutated and even humans who were on the surface and didn't die have become mutants.

There was no new music after the 40's, so the guys who were tech minded enough to get the radio towers back on play the hits from the 30's and 40's. :)







Here's a pretty creepy one. I wonder if this was actually played on the radio:




My bro and his wife were huge into this game before they got married. They played a few of the songs from it at their wedding during the dinner part. (Not Butcher Pete.... lol)

Do Right, Be Right. :)

>>BRENDA...I remember these songs because I'm old. How the heck do YOU remember them?<<

My dear Sig,

My mother had a large record album collection and she listened to the radio constantly when she was home alone with just me. Which means I would have been around 2years old.

So, I grew up listening to Johnny Horton songs. Radio and record. Also radio for Roger Miller. "King of the Road" came out the year after I was born and played all over the place after that. I was born in '64 and it was released in '65. He also did tv which means I watched him perform it on shows like "Hee Haw". And radio as well for "Big Bad John" but not much as that memory is murky.

'Sides, I happen to like Roger Miller and have a cassette of him.

Ok. Thanks.

Here is the song that always makes me think of Serenity.
The video sucks, but here's hoping she can find a new way to fly someday... before I die.

Oonj,

Out of your list the ones I only know are the Cash songs. Grew up hearing "A Boy Named Sue" and "Wabash Cannonball". But I happen to like "Highwayman".
