The Best Of The 50's
« on: December 06, 2011, 11:18:46 AM »

I was thinking about creating my own compilation of the 50's best songs. But since I know only very few songs that would be good enough to make it, I'm asking for your help. I was thinking about 20 tracks. So, in other words, what's your favourite songs from the 50's ?

Definitely include "Hound Dog" or "Jailhouse Rock". Oh, and you gotta have "Rock Around the ClocK". It got this rock thing off the ground.  :)

Hi 5th Beatle, In My Life and AppleScruffy96! I was wondering when a 1950's music thread was coming out! I love so many artists from the 1950's, here's one of them from Lubbock, Texas U.S.A.

Look out Miss Lotte Lenya!

Mackie Messer   Lotte Lenya


Die Dreigroschenoper


Die Moritat von Mackier Messer
Kurt Weill, Bertholdt Brecht, 1928


Und der Haifisch, der hat Zähne   
und die trägt er im Gesicht   
und Macheath, der hat ein Messer   
doch das Messer sieht man nicht.   
   
Ach, es sind des Haifischs Flossen   
rot, wenn dieser Blut vergießt.   
Mackie Messer trägt 'nen Handschuh   
drauf man keine Untat liest.   
   
An 'nem schönen blauen Sonntag   
liegt ein toter Mann am Strand   
und ein Mensch geht um die Ecke   
den man Mackie Messer nennt.   
   
Und Schmul Meier bleibt verschwunden   
und so mancher reiche Mann   
und sein Geld hat Mackie Messer   
dem man nichts beweisen kann.   
   
Jenny Towler ward gefunden   
mit 'nem Messer in der Brust   
und am Kai geht Mackie Messer   
der von allem nichts gewußt.   
   
Und das große Feuer in Soho   
sieben Kinder und ein Greis -   
in der Menge Mackie Messer, den   
man nicht fragt und der nichts weiss.   
   
Und die minderjährige Witwe   
deren Namen jeder weiss   
wachte auf und war geschändet -   
Mackie, welches war dein Preis?   
Wachte auf und war geschändet -   
Mackie, welches war dein Preis?
