Ah yes the '50s; I guess that was my 'my era', since I graduated high school in '54,. and was in the military in '55. No, I never danced, nor did I
get taken by rock & roll. Actually, music per se, played a very small part in my life, just as it does today. My preference in popular music
would be in decades before the '50s, for as much as it counts.
However I would prefer the culture today were the same as it was in the '50s.
Yes, before somebody climbs upon my case, the '50s had it's flaws, such as racial prejudice, which had to exculpated, but by the end of the
'50s, itwas well upon it's way out. Of course, today's culture also has it's prejudices, and even more of them since one political party has
taken to exploiting minor differences of race, religion, sex, age, national origin etc. In fact, many of us here are apparently of the
"untouchable" class, Being "old white men"..
Generally speaking, our culture of the '50s was more honest and forthright (IMO), especially in one to one relationships, and facing the world
as it exists.. Just my $ .02, take it or trash it !
