Note to all (I'll put this in the OP too): when suggesting or posting tracks, if it doesn't mention it in the video can you please advise what album your song is from? Some artists have huge discographies and I don't want to waste time trawling through them looking for a song, single or track. Thanks.

The Ink Spots started way before Rock and Roll, and Doo Wop. At that point in their career they were a "Vocal Jazz" group. The song was written in 1937. The music was composed by George Gershwin and the lyrics by Ira Gershwin. You are absolutely free to consider George and Ira Gershwin Doo Wop, do whatever you want, but nah, don't.

Ragtime? You're killing me Smalls.
Genre: Jump Blues, (aka) Jump

Another thing. OK true this music is old, the song came out in '49 but it's not "old-time music." "Old-Time" with its origin in North American Folk music and Appalachian Folk music is something entirely different from Jump. (I say Folk I'm not talking about the commercialize American Folk Revival music of the 50s and 60s.) I don't know if this is best example to give, but Flat & Scruggs played Old-Time music and considered themselves proponents of Old Time music.

Chuck Berry is Rock and Roll, he's not Rockabilly.
OK I'm glad you like it, but you're killing me Smalls. You're killing with your Genre:.

Doo Wop. I don't know go about identifying a song written in the 30s as "Doo Wop" and then when you hear an actual "Doo Wop" song you're at a lost for works and do not know what it is. You're killin me Smalls.

You're killing me Smalls. It's Rock and Roll.

I'm glad you like "Come On" and "Roadrunner" I was hoping the same with the others. The lyrics to "Slap That Bass" and "Beans and Cornbread" are fun. I thought you would pick up on that fun and like them as well. Maybe have a laugh and enjoyed them. However I was severely wrong on that account.

If I'm killing you, Smalls, then you're killing me Biggs. These selections are almost entirely based on what you surely must know I don't enjoy. Whether that's the case or not - and in fairness I said any genre - you can't blame me for not knowing or having to guess at a genre I'm by no means familiar with nor particularly like. Maybe next time include the genre and then I won't be killing you huh?

Point to note: I'm no fan of really much music (there are exceptions of course, but generally) before say 1960s, or really 70s. It was a bit of a trial to listen to most of your selections so maybe think more in terms of something I might better appreciate next time.

tl;dr no more music from when the world was black and white.
