Alternate History Of Pop - The Story So Far
« on: January 02, 2021, 02:36:55 PM »
I've started a new thread as the main one is so busy it's easy to lose track of links posted.

As the Alternate History Of Pop thread has now hit the Eighties milestone, I thought it was time to start archiving the song choices, so to that end I've started putting together year-by-year mixes and bunging them up on Mixcloud. There may be some chronological juggling here and there[1], please remind if there's any I've missed off.

Part 1 - 1962

01 - Sounds Like Locomotion - Sounds Inc.
02 - Wiggle Wobble - Les Cooper & The Soul Rockers
03 - He's A Rebel - The Crystals
04 - Mashed Potato Time - Dee Dee Sharp
05 - Bad Boy - The Donays
06 - Puff (Up In Smoke) - Kenny Lynch
07 - The Work Song - Tommy Hunt
08 - I Hear Voices - Screamin' Jay Hawkins
09 - Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Peter, Paul & Mary
10 - Time Beat - Ray Cathode
11 - Tiki - Martin Denny
12 - Stars Fell On Stockbridge - The Shadows
13 - That Noise - Anthony Newley
14 - Footstompin' - The Flares
15 - Breaking Up Is Hard To Do - Neil Sedaka
16 - There Oughta Be A Law - Yolanda & The Charmaines
17 - The Conservative - The Orlons
18 - Lovers By Night, Strangers By Day - The Fleetwoods
19 - Mucha Muchacha - Esquivel
20 - Come On Let Me Try - Linda & The Del Rios
21 - Anything That's Part Of You - Elvis Presley
22 - I Don't Want To Be Loved - Linda & The Del Rios
23 - 500 Miles - Peter, Paul & Mary

 1. I got to the end and realised I'd missed Gene Pitney off somehow, so I'll bung on 1963 when I get round to doing it.
