R&P: What's a favorite song with "Rock" or "Clock" in the title or lyric?
Hey R&P, Simply a little "Day in Music History" feature:
On this day in 1954 – Bill Haley & His Comets release "Rock Around the Clock", the first rock and roll record to reach number one on the Billboard charts.
Bill Haley - Rock Around The Clock
It was not the first rock and roll record, nor was it the first successful record of the genre and yet, Haley's recording nevertheless became an anthem for rebellious Fifties youth and is widely considered to be the song that, more than any other, brought rock and roll into mainstream culture around the world. The song is ranked #158 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
