Which Songs Does ‘Who Put the Bomp’ Reference?

I became interested in this because in the song ‘Who Put the Bomp’ (which is posted on my previous post) is entirely devoted to the artist who put certain noises in their songs. Below are my best guesses – Blue Moon has a lot of ‘bomps’, and ‘Ramadamadingdong’ is definitely from The Edsels song named Rama Lama Ding Dong.

Blue Moon – The Marcels

Rama Lama Ding Dong – The Edsels

Favorite 50’s Songs

Today I feel like some bringing up a lighter subject than the economic disaster brewing – a few of my favorite 50’s songs:

Angel Eyes – Curtis Lee

Who Put The Bomp – Barry Mann

Teenager In Love – Dion and the Belmonts

Johnny B. Goode – Chuck Berry

There are a lot of other great 50’s songs, but I think Elvis deserves an entire post for that purpose.

The Er Hu

The Er Hu (pronounced èrhú) is a Chinese two stringed fiddle. It is one of the oldest instruments still in existence, and remnants of very similar instruments have been dated two thousand years old. Only dense hardwood is used in it’s construction, and surprising enough the best Er Hus have been made from pieces of old furniture.The string was traditionally made of silk, and the covering of the sound box is usually made of python skin. Nowadays, Erhus are still used to play traditional Chinese music and also used during the Beijing Opera. Individuals are only allowed to bring two Erhus out of the country that have the coveted python skin covering.
