Music from the 50s and 60s that gives you swing? (Upbeat or Doo Wop?)?
Hi, I am looking for some maybe not so much known but good Music from the 50s, 60s or maybe also 70s. The Music is for the shoe-store where my girlfriend works - it must be music that keeps giving you a good feeling while you are working without being too slow, sad or too rocky. She likes to dance a bit while serving the customers or taking care of the store. She says this kind of music is called "Upbeat" but I am not sure about that... Here are some examples of songs from the first CD that I've made for her: Del Shannon - Runaway Dion and the Belmonts - Wanderer, Runaround Sue Dion and the Del Satins - Dream Lover The Searchers - Love Potion Number 9 The Diamonds - Little Darlin' The Crew Cuts - Sh-Boom The Marcells - Blue Moon The Spencer Davis Group - Keep on running Nancy Sinatra - These boots are made for walking Ben E. King - Stand by me Otis Redding - Sittin' on the dock of the bay Marvin Gaye - Heard it through the grapevine Jerry Dallman & the Knightcaps - The Bug I am sure there must be some very good similar songs from that time, that were never selling as good as those songs above - but some of you (who grew up in these days (long before I was born)) know about them. Please don't send any suggestions from Elvis, The Beatles, Roy Orbison or Cliff Richards (I am looking for less known artists). Maybe you can also answer my other somehow similar question: Current music that sounds like music from the 50's or 60's? ( http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100831044058AAV6Ml4 ) Thank you very much for taking your time reading my question and especially for answering me!
