What are some good oldies songs?

So I'm into oldies right now, but I don't really know how to branch out from the American Graffiti soundtrack :P Like, right now I'm listened to "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" on repeat because I can't think of other songs to play. So, some suggestions?


Okay, by oldies I mean 50's, maybe early 60's, music, when rock 'n roll was beginning to evolve and such.
