50's

Top 30 Greatest Songs 1950-1959 (According to Dave’s Music Database)



The 1950's where an important decade for music. This was when music transferred from jazz and blues to rock n' roll. This was because of artists such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and Chuck Berry.
For the second half of the twentieth century, I have decided to make each decade video have 30 songs instead of 20. This is because people know much more songs in the second half then the first.

Song List:
30. Maybellene – Chuck Berry (1955)
29. Mona Lisa – Nat "King" Cole (1950)
28. Your Cheatin' Heart – Hank Williams (1953)
