Old School Friday - Greatest Retro Music Nostalgia

This week's Old School Friday is "Greatest of all time". Oh come on Marva! Greatest what? Greatest rocker, greatest R&B, greatest Peggy Lee Female Impersonator??? You really are going to give me a chance to mess with this theme aren't ya??? Okay, here goes - Greatest of the greatest old school, nostalgia style, retro music, musicians, bands, groups, fakers & the ones I listen to all the bloody time:

GROUP OF ALL TIME: What are you crazy? THE BEATLES! When I'm 64 - because I'm getting awfullllly close (crap!):

SURFIN' MUSIC: The Beach Boys - They rocked then, they rock now, they're dudes, dude! Fun, Fun, Fun - because they just were! (Man, they were young in the 60s, but then so as I.)

OLD STYLE ROCKER: Jerry Lee Lewis - Didn't like him but I loved his music! Great Balls of Fire - Because I get to say "balls" and because it is goodness gracious great!

BEST CRUISIN' MUSIC: Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) - because these were the guys who dominated my 8-track in the sixties and Green River because I finally wore it out and had to get it again.

RETRO BAD BOY: Jim Morrison of The Doors, The Lizard King, Mojo Rising King of nasty, sexy, hot - black - leather pants - hormonal - teenybopper dreams: Why Light My Fire? Because he did!

MUSIC FROM A GENERATION OTHER THAN MINE: Swing, Big Band, Crooners - because this was the music my mom and I listened to and the music she taught me to dance to: In The Mood - My favorite swing tune and one I'm always in the mood for.

GIRL GROUP: I cheated here because a) I can't pick and b) this video was too retro cool. I'm such a rebel but I'll make you happy baby!

GREATEST SHOWMANSHIP: KISS - Yes, I posted this before but it's just too great to miss - KISS and That 70's Show together? It's a retro two-fer. Dedicated to the days when I did rock and roll all night - the 70s!

I could go on and on and on but the page would never load BUT. . . .one more just for you, MsMahvehlus and The OSF clan (hehehehehehehe):
