     What does Eddie Cochran have in common with Hershey’s Chocolate?… well, it’s a TV commercial airing recently, in which Eddie’s song “C’mon Everybody,”(1958) is making everyone feel good, as visions of smores float across the screen. On a similar thread, some months ago Campbells Soup Company, was touting their chicken noodle variety, to the tune of “Never Be Anyone Else But You,” by Ricky Nelson (the b-side of his 1959 smash “It’s Late”). Quite amazing, here we are in the twenty-first year of the new millennium, and these songs from the 1950s, come back to capture our hearts. As we say, music is timeless, and for me that’s just ….mm, mm, good!
