1960

The music of 1960 was dominated by schmaltz, cutesy songs, and re-cycled rock n roll. But this week I've got an hour's worth of the good stuff.

rolf harrisMarty Robbins starts the show off with the tale of a love triangle that ends tragically. Fortunately the guitar fills and 3-part harmonies sound as fresh today as they did 50 years ago. Also fresh is the James Brown song "Think" and Ben E. King's "Stand By Me."

Even 50 years after the fact, Rolf Harris (left, who's a pretty mean painter too) will still make you laugh, Bernard Herrmann's final from "Psycho" will still send a chill, and Brenda Lee's soulful country voice still sounds beautiful and real.
