One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: ABC Boogie by Bill Haley and The Comets!!!

For as long as I’ve been on the radio, and definitely for as long as I’ve been writing a blog, I will occasionally make a reference to a song being “One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded!” (GSER)

I would usually follow that by saying that I would eventually start a category for it, but then never get around to it.

Well, now I’m getting around to it!

It will pretty much follow the pattern of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

I’ll select a song to celebrate and then give my thoughts about it. Nothing really brand new here that hasn’t been done before. But since I have a website, I can collect them and lay out what my own greatest songs are.

My radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,”  is on Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET but is on hiatus because of the pandemic.

Here’s the link for when the show returns: )

Even though I always emphasize new music and artists, it’s always fun to take a short drive through the legendary artists, since they influenced those other artists!

But a song doesn’t have to be old or done by a legendary Theme Attic Hall of Fame member to be thus honored.

I can think of several songs that are only a few years old or less that I could identify as One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded.

On days that I spotlight a greatest song, it will take the place of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

This will be fun, and hopefully you will join me on my journey…at least sometimes!


Every year I do a Back to School show.

I am always listening to music, and the challenge for an annual show, is to find a good mixture of songs I haven’t played before.

However, there are a few favorite tunes that find their way back on to the playlist.

“ABC Boogie” by Bill Haley and His Comets is one of those songs!

It’s difficult to resist the rockabilly innocence of a song by one of the early legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll, featuring a teacher from Basin street, that not only teaches standard subjects, but uses music to do it!

I love this song!!!!!!!!!!!
