The fifties : 1957

The fifties : 1957

Hi my name is Fred

I have a mission : that is to create a large music library on spotify with playlists per year based on what songs were in the charts that year.

Good or bad songs, it doesn’t matter. If it is in the charts of that year, it’s in de playlist of that year.

The playlists from 1957 – 1964 will be based on the monthly charts of the (not existing anymore) dutch magazine ‘Muziek Parade’.

The playlists from 1965 till now, will be based on the charts of ‘De Nederlandse Top 40’.

I already created playlists for 1958 – 1973.

I just created the playlist ‘The fifties : 1957’ 

I start with the songs from june 1957 (the start of the charts in the magazine). Then I add only the songs that entered the chart the next months after june. My first post holds the months june till december. Because this year doesn't have much contents if it's only based on the magazine charts, I will mix it up with the UK chart of 1957 from the second post. I will add songs on a regular base till all songs that have been up in the chart that year are in it.
