TOP 10 FIFTIES FLOOR-FILLERS
AS VOTED FOR BY PRO MOBILE READERS
A multitude of genres and styles comprised the 1950s, but there was one that shone brighter than the rest. Yes, the results for our Top Ten Fifties Floor-fillers are in and you’ve voted exclusively for rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly tracks! It’s no surprise, really. Rock ‘n’ roll was the hub around which the cultural revolution of the fifties revolved, and the songs, predominantly recorded in the Southern heartland of the US, were what drew rebellious youngsters to the dance-floors of the western world. In his song ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Music’ Chuck Berry sang “it’s got a back beat, you can use it” – and that’s exactly what teenagers did.

So, which songs and artists proved to be the most popular floor-fillers with mobile DJs? And which classic fifties track made number one? You – the readers of Pro Mobile – have chosen, so read on to find out...
Rock Around The Clock
Bill Haley & His Comets
We weren’t too surprised to see this enduring classic take the top spot! ‘Rock Around The Clock’ by Bill Haley & His Comets is the song you’ve voted for as the best floor-filler of the fifties, with its relentless dance beat, walking bass and catchy lyrics. Though it isn’t considered the first ever rock and roll song, it’s certainly one of the earliest and without a doubt the track that brought the genre into the mainstream, winning favour with swathes of rebellious teenagers across the US and the UK. As significant to the 1950s as the Beatles were to the 1960s, Billy Haley & His Comets – along with this unstoppable song – ushered in the modern era of pop music as we know it. If that doesn’t earn the number one spot on our Top Ten Fifties Floor-fillers, we don’t know what would! But we knew you’d get it right…
