1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Music! Music! Music! recorded by Teresa Brewer introduced February 4, 1950
Written by Stephen Weiss & Bernie Baum
Accompanied by the Dixieland All Stars
Recorded when 5-foot-2 Teresa Brewer was barely 19 years old, this contagious, Dixieland, nickel-in-the-nickelodeon song fit her like a glove. It became a runaway hit and had the entire country singing all year.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Put another nickel in, in the nickelodeon, all I want is loving you and music, music, music"
