A Fun One for Looking Back!!

If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darlin' ".
 A good friend -- even older than I am, sent this one to me and I had to share it!  Now, you youngsters may not recognize any of this, but for you that are too young to remember - it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans, dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood.
They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible lyrics or trash the set.
In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin" 47 years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City ...
This link leads to both performances.
Watch the first one then scroll down for the new one 47 years later.
Hope you enjoy.
47 years apart 2 Performances --  If you can't see it by clicking on the address here, then just type it in on your computer. I hope you can see it, it's a great look back and  really fun videos!

Fabulous videos...though Dave Somerville has no relationship to Tom Hanks that I am aware of; can understand the error from that side profile though! This was a real feel-good post Sylvia, thanks for sharing it. YAM xx

First of all, I must congratulate you on your award from the president! Special Ambassador to all those important things means a great deal!

I do remember the song, "Little Darlin'", too...that was the year Lois and I got married! How could I forget my lil' darlin'?

Hope all goes well with you!

Everything you said about the music in the '50's is TRUE... Seems as if life was SO much better then.. I loved Little Darlin'---and could sing it (part of it) when you first mentioned it. I am definitely a product of the 50's... Loved it...

thanks for sharing this Sylvia. This song was really big in Sweden. But I think they wes a little bit more serious on the record.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
