Who has two thumbs and really loves Doo Wop & the Golden Oldies? THIS GIRL! I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t. From being a little girl riding around with my dad in his truck to my morning drive to high school with my best friend, I’d always choose to listen to these classics.
A lot of music moves me, but these tunes REALLY move me. I am in love with their vocal harmonies and simple lyrics and can’t help but to twirl and sway around the room whenever I hear them. These musicians were huge influencers of the early rock and roll era (another favorite of mine), and believe it or not have even impacted the music we hear today. I will be the first to admit that I have some serious issues connecting to modern music. I’ll always choose to listen The Drifters or The Crew Cuts over a lot of current releases. I might just be a total anachronism.
So from my most favorite genre of music “Mixtape Monday” has been born! I will be posting playlists featuring some of my favorite artists and songs, so stay tuned for more posts like this one. Enjoy!
