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.!"
