Wednesday`s Coach and Horses Fifties night was to celebrate 60 years of the British music charts. It was on November the 14th in 1952 that the New Musical Express became the first place to publish a regular UK music chart. The first number one was “Here in my Heart” by Al Martino. I`m sure we all remember that old classic – NOT!
Anyway,apart from a couple of Poodle skirts, everybody`s interpretation of the fifties was interesting to say the least. Some looked at least a decade or so earlier while Elvis himself seemed to be sporting a pair of flares that were probably from twenty years later. And then when someone turned up stating that we hadn`t specified which 50s and that they had come in 1850s costume the theme seemed to really go out of the window!
