Magic Moments - The Best of '50s Pop

Thank You Gifts

By popular demand, the MY MUSIC series brings back the happiest hits from the days of poodle skirts and penny loafers with MAGIC MOMENTS: THE BEST OF 50s POP, an unforgettable concert featuring singing sensations from a kinder and gentler time. Pat Boone, Phyllis McGuire and Nick Clooney co-host. From "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" performed by the Four Aces to Patti Page singing her immortal "Old Cape Cod," these are truly magical memories from the days when songs appealed to audiences of all ages. The beloved "Mr. C.," Perry Como, launches the parade of 50s favorites with vintage footage of the show's 1958 top 10 title track "Magic Moments." Another archival clip presents the always emotional Johnnie Ray with "Cry," a million-seller from 1951, while Pat Boone croons his romantic classic from 1957, "Love Letters in the Sand." The lovely ladies of song are represented with a trio of million-selling, chart-topping tunes of the 50s. Film star Debbie Reynolds sings a sweet serenade with "Tammy" from 1957; Gogi Grant reprises her dramatic 1956 hit "The Wayward Wind"; Rosemary Clooney, in a flashback film segment, is seen in a wistful rendition of her 1954 evergreen "Hey There." More great group sounds are heard from the stunning McGuire Sisters, who offer a medley of sentimental standards such as "Sincerely," "Sugartime" and "Something's Gotta Give." Lynn Evans of the Chordettes returns to the stage to recall that trio's playful 1958 favorite "Lollipop," while the Four Preps reunite for "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)" and "Big Man."
