In a hardship year, musicians reacted by giving folks plenty to dance to!
This postwar year was a boom time for pop- and jazz-crossover delights.
Country boogie, jump blues, and sweet balladry were all the rage in this year.
Timeless classics, from "Stand By Me" to "Hit the Road Jack" to "At Last."
"Shake, Rattle and Roll," cool jazz, Cuban mambo and more classic music.
WWII is won, bebop is born, the blues smokes, Woody Guthrie sings, and more!
All was great in '88 with Sonic Youth, GN'R, Public Enemy and more.
From Hank Williams to Charlie Gillett to Professor Longhair to Muddy Waters.
Dance, surf, and party the night away with these wild and energetic early-60s hits!
Get nostalgic for the very recent past, with Pharrell, JT, and others!
Gnarls Barkley went "Crazy," Rihanna sent out an "S.O.S." and more.
A new decade takes shape, with Aretha, Tina, Coltrane, and "The Twist"!
"The Year Punk Broke," and a time when MJ, U2, Ice Cube and more reigned.
From "Born to Run" to "Walk This Way" to "Rock and Roll All Nite."
"Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting." "Living for the City." Yeah, '73 ruled.
An amazing year in music, from Prince to New Order to Bob Marley and beyond.
