Well, we're gettin' down to the pointy end of the Dance Party Mega Mixtapes with this week's aural journey taking us back to the 1950s. Not sure how many more decades the tube of you has left in it, but we'll keep on squeezing 'till it's dry. 

With '50s jams being more of a parental/grandparental specialty, this week's mixtape could be considered more of an education, as y'all have probably only ever heard these tunes in films like Arnie's rendition of 'Yakety Yak' in Twins, Dennis Quad's acting pinnacle in the Jerry Lee Lewis biopic Great Balls Of Fire (well, maybe Inner Space was on par...) and Michael J. Fox's iconic Chuck Berry guitar solo from Back To The Future. Or perhaps, you are lucky enough to have awesome parents who shared their love of '50s records with you growing. Either way,  these tunes are freakin' awesome and worthy of a place in our Dance Party Mega Mixtape!!! 


1. Big Joe Turner - 'Shake, Rattle & Roll'

2. The Coasters - 'Yakety Yak'

3. Little Richard - 'Tutti Frutti'

4. Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode

5. Elvis Presley - 'Jailhouse Rock'

6. Jerry Lee Lewis - 'Great Balls Of Fire'

7. Little Richard - 'Good Golly Miss Molly'

8. Johnny Cash - 'I Walk The Line'

9. Elvis Presley - 'That's Alright Mama'

10. Chuck Berry - Roll Over Beethoven
