Thursday Thirteen : DOA Part One

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This week's Thirteen is a music one. Thirteen One-Hit Wonders from the 1950's. I hope I am not the only one who was given a great love of the "oldies" by a family member. My grandmother was a teenager in the '50's and this was "her" music. We had some of the best times on Saturday afternoons listening to her old records and singing along...she even let me wear her old poodle skirts. (yes, they really do exist.)
I found the songs on One Hit Wonder Central. I'll probably do a list like this for every decade, but not all in a row. Enjoy the walk down memory lane...
