Soundtrack of a Lifetime – 2019 Edition – Day 30

Well here we are at the end of another of The Soundtrack of a Lifetime series. It has been a lot of fun remembering old songs that we enjoyed over more than a 60 year period. Who would have thought that Rock & Roll would endure so long?

For those of you who have been following along, thanks for your time. If you missed a few articles, you can revisit them all at My Blog.

For our final song for the 2019 edition we have an oldie from one of the originators of Rock & Roll, Antoine "Fats" Domino (no relation). Fats is often credited with being the first Rock & Roll artist to have a million selling song. Today’s song Blueberry Hill is one that has been recorded by dozens of artists from Gene Autry to The Beach Boys to Celine Dion. The song was even performed by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin at a charity event in 2010 in front of an audience of international film and television celebrities.

But clearly the most popular version came from the Fat Man. It reached number two for three weeks on the Billboard Top 40 charts, becoming his biggest pop hit. It has been ranked number 82 on the Rolling Stone list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

So, The Soundtrack of a Lifetime will go back on hiatus until 2020. Meanwhile, why don’t you take a few minutes to view and listen to another great Rock & Roll memory from 1956? Blueberry Hill.

Hello Joseph - music certainly has the ability to move, inspire, enjoy, think/ponder, reflect and much more.  It's incredible when a song can "translate" so well across language/cultural boundaries/barriers.  Hmm...
