Top Hits of the Decade ~ 1950’s

Hello everyone, I’ve been organising some Music Themed Memory Rummage Baskets for a residential care home group who are constantly enriching social care for their residents. Amongst the memorabilia, postcards, photographs and conversation prompts, I have included Top Hits of the Decade ~ 1950’s [obviously colour coordinated and neatly positioned in the pack. So, for all the young carers out there, here is the list for you to share your knowledge with the residents you care for:

                               Top Hits of The Decade: 1950s
1 Bill Haley & His Comets Rock Around The Clock
2 Paul Anka Diana
3 Harry Belafonte Mary’s Boy Child
4 Anton Karas The Harry Lime Theme (The Third Man)
5 Emile Ford & The Checkmates What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For
6 Elvis Presley Jailhouse Rock
7 Adam Faith What Do You Want
8 Cliff Richard & The Drifters Living Doll
9 Elvis Presley All Shook Up
10 The Everly Brothers All I Have To Do Is Dream / Claudette

Top Tip 

Look out for 1950’s vinyl records and LP’s [Long Playing] records in charity shops

The cover images can often remind people with dementia about their youth and prompt stories to share.

Enjoy, Gillian
