@tsarstepan,
Les Paul and Mary Ford - How High The Moon

And I haven't a clue! Laughing

Nice idea for a thread. How about the number one song when you were dating?

Heartaches.

I learned to sing it and Tennesse Waltz for neighborhood shows.

@edgarblythe,
Edgar, Thanks for filling me in. Can't say I'm impressed. A bit of a Glenn Miller sound, but basically a yawn. I guess everybody was too busy getting ready for my entry into the world to pay a lot of attention to music.

@Roberta,
It was an odd time.
The world of the USA was trying to calm down from five years of wars.. What did Billy Joel write?
Well our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers at the USO
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow


The big bands were all about romance in 1947. A couple of years later, not long, somebody said "Nuts to that. Let's Rock.!"

@jespah,
#1 song the day RP and I met (a good meeting but a blah song):


I think it's even worse in the UK:

Good thing we met in Mineola.
