If you grew up during the 1960s, I probably don’t need to tell you just how amazing the music was from that period. “The Twist” by Chubby Checker, “Hey Jude” by The Beatles, “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys, “My Girl” by the Temptations… the list of seminal hits goes on and on, and it will take years for me to name them all (I might miss a handful if I ever tried to get through all the hits from the 60s). And when you hear any of these songs, be prepared for some serious nostalgia. I know for me, I can’t help but shake a leg to my favorite song, regardless of how old it is. I take a trip down memory lane each time these tunes come on.
As you’ve probably already experienced, music has a way of opening the floodgates to some very fond memories and triggering some very strong emotions. Some tunes can make you laugh at the thought of something old, and then there are others that may be associated with heartbreak and sad times (yes, there’s such thing). Indeed, when we recall songs in our head, we end up recalling events in our lives. That’s why music can sometimes help “awaken” patients of Alzheimer’s. It’s that powerful.
The fun video we’re sharing with you today is of a certain trio performing on the Big TNT show back in 1963. I can guarantee that a lot of you will know this tune moment that it begins playing.Even if you were born after the 60s, you might still know this incredible song, that’s how good it is, and not to mention that it became popular fairly quickly.
Watch the incredible footage below and see how quickly you can figure out the name of the song and the group. For a song so well-known, I’ll be honest and say it took me about a minute to figure it out! This one definitely took me a little bit of thinking, but it’s a breeze for music lovers, I’m sure! So let’s see how you do…
Sadly, it wasn’t long after that this group, The Rockettes, decided to split up and go their separate ways but it’s a blast from the past. To give you a little bit of background context on this group, The Rockettes was a popular band in the 60s. Everyone loved their music and the energy that they brought to each of their stage performances. They’ve performed with notable singers, and everyone thought that they’d go far in the industry. Their split came as a huge surprise to everyone.
