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...
Johnny B. Goode
Chuck Berry
Opening with one of music’s most renowned guitar riffs, this rock and roll favourite from one of the genre’s pioneering artists comes in at number three. Chuck Berry was as much a rebel off-stage as he presented himself on-stage, and the lyrics to ‘Johnny B. Goode’ are considered to be partly autobiographical, telling the story of a down-beat ‘country boy’ who dreams of being a star. Of course, Berry was as good a guitar player as he made out in the lyrics to the song; this unstoppable track showcases his abrasive, fast-paced sound – an influence on the unique style of the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards.
