5 February 1955 "Music and Mutts"

I have been so busy and a little ill today, so here is a very short blog with some music and a movie preview for 1955. Enjoy!

Elvis is continuing to make his move about. This actual poster sold for 43,000.00 recently. Anyway, where I am now I would still most likely say, "who is Elvis?" This, of course, would change by next year (1956)
On January 8, 1955 - Elvis Presley's third Sun Records single, "Milk Cow Blue Boogie" / "You're a Heartbreaker" was released.

Here is bye bye blackbird from this album which was released this year (1955):

I love Peggy Lee. Here she is in the 1950s and I would most likely have seen this on television at some point:

I LOVE Teresa Brewer! I discovered her by accident, had never heard of her, but she was a really big pop artist in the 1950s. One of my favorite songs she sings is this silly one, which my vintage friend and I now have dubbed our official 'sewing song'. It has NOTHING to do with sewing but we couldn't stop playing it when we were sewing together the other day. You know how you get, all giddy from begin cooped up all day together and both of us furiously zoomin away on our machines. I actually found this odd video of it on youtube. I hope you enjoy it, it is quite odd, but strangely addictive.

Walt Disney's Lady and the Tramp comes out this year (1955) here is the preview I may have seen in the theatre: (Peggy Lee did the song of the cute dog in the pound as well as the siamese cats) This really is an interesting look at class structure and post war ideals, I didn't realize.
I will be back to a normal size and topical blog tomorrow.
