Yes, Mr. Roger’s ears are mid-century (born in 1955), which is why, early in life, I developed an ear for music from the mid-century years. How could one resist when songs melted out of the old transistor radio on the kitchen table by singers such as Vic Damone, Frank Sinatra, and the Andrews Sisters. Mr. Roger’s always loves a good retro roadtrip on the Internet Highway, so today I decided to revisit some of the old favorites with a twist…songs about home.
Nothing better than The Andrews Sisters “Show Me the Way to Go Home“, 1958
Remember this one? ”On the Street Where You Live“, Vic Damone, 1964
How about Dino? “Home” Dean Martin, 1966
Do you remember Eartha Kitt dreaming of “…an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence”? “Just an Old Fashioned Girl”, 1958
Who are your favorite singers from the mid-century? Mr. Roger wants to reminisce with you!
