1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Oh! Oh! Iím Falling in Love Again recorded by Jimmie Rodgers introduced February 17, 1958
Written by Al Hoffman & Dick Manning
Orchestra conducted by Hugo Peretti
The muted, rock-influenced arrangement on this brisk recording compliments Jimmie Rodgers high, sweet voice and acoustic guitar. He also had strong sellers in 1958 with his pop-oriented folk songs Secretly and Are You Really Mine. Jimmie Rodgers, along with the Weavers and the Everly Brothers embody a folk touch in several fifties songs while Harry Belafonte brought calypso to the scene.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"never in a hundred, never in a thousand years, never in a million years"
