Marie, our guest conductor for March, wanted "old rock & roll" as the theme for today, and I figured you couldn’t get much older than Sun Records, founded in Memphis in 1952 by Sam Phillips and home to a lot of the early rock & roll, country, rockabilly, and blues artists. The four artists I most associate with Sun are Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. I’m just going to put this out here and list the names of the songs, because dinner is near…
- Elvis Presley, "That’s All Right, Mama"
- Elvis Presley, "Good Rockin’ Tonight"
- Elvis Presley, "Mystery Train"
- Roy Orbison, "Ooby Dooby"
- Roy Orbison, "Problem Child"
- Roy Orbison, "Mean Little Mama"
- Carl Perkins, "Blue Suede Shoes"
- Carl Perkins, "Boppin’ The Blues"
- Carl Perkins, "Honey Don’t"
- Jerry Lee Lewis, "Little Queenie"
- Jerry Lee Lewis, "Breathless"
- Jerry Lee Lewis, "High School Confidential"
And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for March 15, 2021.
