Monday Music Memories – Sh-Boom (Life Could Be a Dream)

 This was  early doo-wop – around 1954. The Crew Cuts belted it out on the Ed Sullivan in that same year. It is also considerd R&B. After all, James Keyes, Claude Feaster, Carl Feaster, Floyd F. McRae and James Edwards, who wrote the song, hailed from R&B. 

The song weathered the decades and played a part in TV and movies. It was one of the musical themes in the 1987 movie, Clue, the TV show Happy Days and even made an “appearance” in Pixar’s movie, Cars.

The artists for this version is Street Corner Renaissance.

    I was just after the cusp of doo-wop. Enjoyed listending to this, and I really have liked almost all doo-wop songs I’ve heard at our fave retro diner!
