Top 100 Songs of 1959

Earlier I wrote about 1958. I decided to do a list for 1959.

Some of these songs you will recognize, since they are still popular. Some you may recognize the singer, or the song, but not both. Take a step back in time, to fifty years ago, and hear what we heard on the radio, or listened to on our record players.

I got the list from www.OldFortyFives.com.

If you like this list of songs with videos, you can find other lists at: www.chaosgone.blogspot.com.

Winter Time

Winter is coming, and I’m prepared,
Mom’s dressed me up, with warm clothes to wear.
I’ll stay warm, out in the cold,
And have lots of fun, in the snow.

When it’s time to come in,
I’ll be having too much fun,
But if there is hot chocolate,
I will be there on the run!

At the Pond


Photo by sejmoat

Reviewing the past, long ago,
Pondering the future, so far away.
Things we have done, things we will do,
A short break from time we take.

Silence, for a moment. Not a sound.
The world hangs quietly in balance.
Then the cat moves on, much to do.
Some day to the pond she will return.

Grabbed by the Ghoulies

A good Halloween video game is Grabbed by the Ghoulies. It came out a few years ago for the original Xbox, and I don't know if it is still available. Here's a walkthrough.

From: peteypiranha128

The first part of a Let's Play Grabbed by the Ghoulies series I hope to start up. It's the first LP I've ever made, so If there is any suggestions, please post them. I kinda have a bad set up, so I am trying to make it better. If you want to stay tuned to the Let's Play, don't forget to subscribe!

ALSO, I know there is some double sound, that's because the Mic I used to record my voice picked up some of the TV. That's why I have to get a better mic that doesnt pick up other sounds.



Here are some other parts of the game.

Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

There are more parts to the game. You can see them all at: www.youtube.com.
