Great turnout on the polls, guys! We had a whole bunch of votes and here are your results.

There was a three way tie for fifth place with five votes each for Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis Presley, Shout by the Isley Brothers, and I Only Have Eyes For You by the Flamingos.

We had a tie for third place with six votes each for Peggy Sue by Buddy Holly and Lonely Teardrops by Jackie Wilson.

Johnny Cash was in second place with nine votes for Folsom Prison Blues.

The choice of Pop Culture Palace readers for the best song of the fifties with twelve votes was Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode.

Best Artist of the 1950s

Tied for fifth place with three votes each were Sam Cooke and the Everly Brothers.

Ray Charles received four votes to put him in fourth place.

Third place went to Chuck Berry with six votes.

Eight votes put Buddy Holly in second place.

The readers of the Pop Culture Palace, with nineteen votes, placed Elvis Presley firmly in the lead as the greatest musical artist of the fifties.

Tomorrow night I’ll be posting the major pop culture and historical events of the year 1960.

I think the sixties are gonna be a lot of fun.
