Here's a great nostalgia song, Lost In The Fifties Tonight (In The Still Of The Night) by Country Star Ronnie Milsap. It Topped the Country Charts in 1985, but somehow missed crossing over to the Pop Charts. Have a listen to it !

Lyrics

Close your eyes, baby

Follow my heart

Call on the memories

Here in the dark

We'll let the magic

Take us away

Back to the feelings

We shared when they played

In the still of the night

Hold me darlin', hold me tight

So real, so right

Lost in the fifties tonight

These precious hours

We know can't survive

But loves all that matters

While the past is alive

Now and for always

Till time disappears

We'll hold each other

Whenever we hear

In the still of the night

Hold me darlin', hold me tight

So real, so right

Lost in the fifties tonight

I like it, Darryl! A nice fifties feel, a little country, a little doo-wop and a great sax.

Here's another a little different nostalgia tune by the Kinks :)One of the Survivors

See Johnny Thunder sitting on his motorbike

Riding along the highway,

Rock and Roll songs from the nineteen-fifties

Buzzing around in his brain.

Johnny Thunder he's one of the original bebop generation

And he's got no time for complicated music or too much sophistication.

He's one of the survivors,

The motorbike riders.

You ought to see Johnny Thunder riding down the highway

One of the rock and roll survivors,

Twelve bars flowing through his brain.

He digs Jerry Lee Lewis, Dion and The Belmonts,

And Johnny & The Hurricanes.

He plays Hound Dog, Oh Boy, and Great Balls of Fire

And Boppin' At The High School Hop.

And he's got no time for phonies or posers

'Cos they don't know how to reel and rock.

and he plays Little Egypt and Ooh Poo Pah Doo,

And he plays Poison Ivy and Blue Suede Shoes,

The Hollywood Argyles, Danny & The Juniors,

Dion & The Belmonts, Johnny & The Hurricanes.

He's one of the survivors,

The boppers and the jivers,

Yeah and he rocks all day.

Johnny & The Hurricanes, Johnny & The Hurricanes.

Got my freedom riding along the freeway.

I ride a hundred miles an hour but I don't mess up my D.A.

Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' roll.

You can't stop rock 'n' rollin' music play.

You can't stop rock 'n' rollin' music play.

Feel those vibrations flow in my brain.

Got my freedom riding down the highway,

Keeps me sane, feel alive,

I'm one of the survivors.

Feel all right.

First gear, second gear, third gear, fourth gear, all right.

Old Johnny Thunder looks a little overweight,

And his sideburns are turning grey.

But he still likes to bebop, boogie and jive

To his worn out seventy-eights.

Johnny Thunder.

He's alright.

He's one of the survivors,

Twelve bars flowing through his brain,

Jerry Lee Lewis, Dion & The Belmonts,

Johnny & The Hurricanes, Johnny & The Hurricanes

Thanks Lars for voting, your Updated Playlist, and the Kinks' song. :)

As all of our Regulars have voted, VOTING IS NOW CLOSED.

I'll start working on the votes now so I can post the CHART.

Well it'll be a very interesting Chart this week.

A fair bit of movement and more entries than usual. The unlucky song to miss out again was Johnny Angel. Last week it finished equal on points with the #40, and this week was one point short of making it.

So at #41 for two weeks, we'll say it's "bubbling under" the Chart.

CeeJay the DeeJay will have a great time this week with his wrap.
