Shag Music Playlists



Shag Music Play Lists


Shag music covers a broad spectrum of formats. Even Shaggers don't agree on the best songs or styles of music. I had hoped to include a variety of audio sounds here to let you actually hear some of the various types of music. However, my server informed me that I've overloaded . . . sooooooo . . . I'll just have to list the a few songs that you might recognize.

You may be familar with either the artist or the song . . . perhaps by another artist. Shake, Rattle, & Roll, as example, has appeared on the Shag circuit by Lowell Fulson, Bill Haley, Billy Swan, Joe Turner, Jackie Wilson, and Huey Lewis & The News!!! It seems when a great song comes out . . . it stays around a long time!

The following play list sampler is just that! The songs and artists that are included in no way shape or form represent ALL of the songs. AND, some songs may, in your humble opinion, be more suitable under a different format. But, this is only a SAMPLER -- it's not written in stone -- just the net!!!
