In the early 60s, doo-wop rock hit a high note with this classic. Cuts off a wee bit early, but still plenty to enjoy. Here's Dion with "The Wanderer"...

In 1978, the pop/rock world got a kick out of a group called The Village People and their first hit record, "Macho Man"...

Part of the fun of this song was trying to figure out what the lyrics were about. Dick Clark of the show American Bandstand would in later years openly admit that he completely missed the boat when he projected that it would flop. Instead, it became #1.

Here's Bobby Darin in a live 1959 performance of "Mack the Knife"...

Before Elvis, Bill Haley and the rest of the primal rockers, there was Bo Diddley.

He's struggling with his health right now, so I can't think of a better time to put out a good vibe for the man by featuring some YouTube videos of Mr. D in his prime.

Here he is in the mid 60s rockin out live on TV with his trademark Bo Diddley beat. "Hey Bo Diddley"...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4QSCLccu08

One of my personal Bo Diddley favorites, a live Shindig performance of "Can't Judge a Book By Lookin at the Cover"...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjotpJ7dsIc&NR=1

Bad job of dubbing, but a good bio of Bo as he's introduced on Hollywood A Go Go with "Let the Kids Dance"...

Here's some good Saturday night music.

When rock was raw, the Rolling Stones from their 1969 US tour. Performance was probably Madison Square Garden in NYC. Covering two classic Chuck Berry standards, "Oh Carol" and go, go go "Little Queenie"...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcaHfhD9XY0

And for an encore, the real deal from 1972 live in London...

Soul Train was a show that originated in Chicago on an obscure local UHF station back in the day, then went national. Here's host Don Cornelius around 1972 introducing the Main Ingredient and a well done lip synched performance to their catchy hit tune at the time.

"Everybody Plays the Fool"...

Let's check out some snappy jazz from one of its greatest influences of the past century, Charlie Parker on the sax in a video from 1950...

Another one from Soul Train for the pre-1980 music video thread.

By the late 70s, the Jackson Five were performing as the Jacksons. Here they are from 1979 and the sound of Gary, Indiana.

Let's dance, let's shout, "Shake Your Body" down to the ground...

I'm guessing this is the first instance of the use of pyrotechnics during a rock performance.

Jerry Lee Lewis, live on American Bandstand around 1957, "Great Balls of Fire"...

A great instrumental song to kick back and enjoy. Here's George Benson from sometime in the mid to late 1970s with a live performance of "Breezin"...

Hot damn! Two music videos par excellence. Superb!

The Glenn Miller Orchestra with Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers from 1941 with "Chattanooga Choo Choo"...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=00giGIsauiQ&mode=related&search=

For an encore, here's Glenn Miller and his band from the early 40s with "People Like You And Me"...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=3EYLT2sNEYw&mode=related&search=

They don't make em like this anymore folks. Enjoy!

Faces with Rod Stewart back when guitarist Ron Wood was still with the band, prior to his jumping ship to the Rolling Stones.

From 1972, "Stay With Me"...

The very first drummer to become famous for being a drummer was the great Gene Krupa. He was a huge influence on many drummers that followed, including many drummers in rock bands up to this day. Especially the late Keith Moon of the Who. Check out this video of Gene Krupa from sometime in the 1940s and you'll see what I mean.

Here we are in the heart of summer and it sure is hot and dry out west in North America. Like the Temptations from the mid 1960s, from ABC's Hollywood Palace, with David Ruffin in lead vocals, "I Wish It Would Rain"...

The Rolling Stones did a great job covering this song, and so did Aerosmith, but there's nothing quite like the real deal.

Here's Rufus Thomas in a TV performance from 1965 with "Walking the Dog"...

The original American Woman.

{ This one takes me back to me as a teenager driving my 4 speed with the pistolgrip shifter, black 1974 roadrunner, down the country road just north of Markham Ontario.}
This was a bit before my time as when it first came out from the Guess Who, yet when it came on the radio, the volume was always automatically turned up very loud.... ha [Smile] ... teenagers... don't they know it'll damage their ears ? ... [Big Grin]

Summertime, black musclecar...open dirt road...radio blasting.... what more do you need ... ah... when life was simple.

Always room for James Brown. Good videos guys.

Here's something from the German TV show Beat Club around 1969. The heavy rockin blues of Humble Pie and "The Sad Bag of Shaky Jake"...

This video's a real gem. A sexy song written and performed by a sexy lady on Soul Train circa 1973. Great for a Saturday night. This is Sylvia with "Pillow Talk"...

Françoise Hardy in the year of 1965. Never was a language so designed for such lips. She breaths in air, and exhales redolence.
