Last Kiss: Songs of Teen Tragedy

written by: sanitation
All of the following hits will be about "teenaged tragedy songs". They are also known as a "tear jerker" or a "splatter platter". These ballads were most popular between the late 1950s and early 1960s. These songs lamented tragic teenage death and were either sung from the viewpoint of the dead person's sweetheart or from the viewpoint of the dead (or dying) person. I know it's a glum topic but nevertheless, a quiz is a quiz. Are you ready for the task at hand? I have done my part and now it's up for you to take the next step. Good luck and start quizzing!
