Last Kiss: Songs of Teen Tragedy

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!

Jukebox Hits from 1958-1959

This quiz will be based on hit music from the late 1950's. I am sure that lots of us know about this type of music. Doo-Wop was a big part of this decade. Singers like Elvis Presley, Paul Anka and Frankie Avalon had all the teenage girls all over the world going "Ga- Ga". Although this is not my strong suit, I will give it a shot anyways. I will give you the song and you will have to tell me who is responsible for providing us with the hit. I have done my part, now it is up to you to do yours. Are you ready? Good luck and start quizzing.
