1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Fifties Songs from Movies, TV, and Broadway
One reason that the fabric of fifties music is so varied is that 50s POP songs came from a wide variety of sources. In addition to music written directly for the recording industry, hundreds of songs were written for films, television, and the musical theater.
The impact of the visual/ musical/popular arts on the record buying public was greater in the fifties than during any other period in recorded music history. Movies, television programs, and Broadway shows were a dominant influence on popular taste and a major source for new sounds in recorded music.
