I've always liked this tune by Guy Mitchell. Very catchy.

Good songs! The only problem is, now I'm going to have "There's a pawnshop, on a corner, in Pitts-burg, Penn-syl-vania" going through my head all day. :lol:

Love this song sung by Louis Armstrong. A Kiss to Build A Dream On.

Well here's the song I've been looking all over for with only a very (bad) vague description. Boom Chick-a Boom by Daddy Dewdrop from 1971. I miss being a teenager listening to that radio station in NJ!

Believe it or not, this song originated on the "Groovie Goolies" cartoon series, which I remember watching when I was 3 or 4.

The original is not quite as risque as the Daddy Dewdrop version. :lol: man, that was a trippy cartoon, wasn't it?

Yeah, sort of The Archies meets The Munsters meets Laugh-In!

Well this in falls into two categories: silent film photos and old music. But I ultimately decided on old music! This is a slideshow I posted on YouTube in 2011. It popped up as a memory on Facebook, and I thought you'd all enjoy it as well!
Well, here ya go!
