I am an 18 year old girl who is sick and tired of being surrounded by kids my own age who don't know basic american culture. So it is my mission to change that and introduce them to the oldies. Welcome!
A GREAT scene from one of the best children’s show of ALL TIME. Kukla, Fran and Ollie.
A great classic oldie for all generations, young and old could enjoy this! Definitely a laugh out loud show. Kukla, Fran and Ollie was started in 1949 and ran all the way into the mid 60’s. The show never lost it’s humor and the cast never lost the magic.
Ella Fitzgerald was a popular female singer of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s era. One of my favorites, Tisket a Tasket was her first single recorded at the age of 18. This was of course a later version.
Dubbed “The First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.
A scene from the 1969 movie “Hello Dolly”. Although it doesn’t exactly qualify as an “Oldie” it is a very important movie. For the simple reason of an iconic scene with both my favorites Barbra Streisand and Louis Armstrong. The song is not only sung with such a beautiful voice but I put this in here simply for the reason most younger people have no idea of this movie and it’s sad because Barbra is now becoming an unknown among the younger generation. Something we can’t let happen!
“You’re the Top” sung by the man himself, Cole Porter. A man who wrote songs that went on to be sang over and over by people such as Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, and more!
His peak was in the late 20’s and he unfortunately died earlier than wanted.
His songs included “Day and Night” , “Wildcat Kelly”, “Delovely”, “Still of the Night”, and “Just One of Those Things” (my favorite)
