    This was the decade which brought rock and roll as well as music to the home masses with its distinctive sounds being completely different to anything that went before. This decade led to the youth of the time becoming rebels and it even dragged older, more traditional genres of music right up into the modern era.

    However, some of the older styles did not vanish, but they merely adapted and evolved to take on a new direction to appeal to the current generation and preferences. For example, with 50s music jazz saw its popularity increase and for anybody that is currently carrying out a project related to the decade, then having some cool background jazz music can just elevate your project to a completely new level. Jazz music for the 50s is laid back and chilled with such a stunning vibe that it really could be seen as the absolute heyday of the music genre.

    The same can be said for 50s orchestra music because if you thought that this was outdated, then think again. Instead, this style of music can be a welcome break from rock and roll and act as a reminder of where 50s music really came from. It is big, it is powerful, and it is something that can capture the attention no matter the way in which you intend to use the track.

    Music from the 50s had a strong swing vibe to it that was capable of getting that foot tapping no matter what you believed your personal musical preferences to be. Rock and roll could get anybody up dancing and shaking their thing while jive music also had a major role to play in the decade that really did get people moving.

    Perhaps the best part is that the music from this decade can be used in so many different ways and with a wealth of different projects. It is so adaptable that is is very easy to find the perfect track to suit your needs, no matter what they may be.

    Here at Melody Loops, we have composed a range of 50s style music covering various styles and tastes and all are completely royalty free. Each track comes as a mp3 wav and is easy to download allowing you to then use it as you wish with your very own project.
