  Reminiscing 1957: The Music
I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to describe, we just have to "go with the flow" so to speak and enjoy the feelings if they are indeed good memories.
It will be a song that will transport someone back to 1957 and a certain kiss, a certain boy or girl, or even a fleeting memory that you can't quite put a finger on.
Or better yet, write the letter to a child or grandchild and share 1957 with someone who means the world to you.

  1957 The Everly Brothers
With 24 of G and T’s Top 40, 11 of the 16 #1 songs of 1957, and 18 of Billboard’s Top 30 being classified as rock and roll, the “new” music was clearly increasing in popularity in 1957.
The practice continued into 1957 with “Young Love,”; one of the best examples of a cover success and the most heated contest of two versions of the same song for the “Elvis Era.” Sonny James took the song to #2 with a country version that had a distinct rock and roll flavor.
In 1957 popular music came in four basic media: the 78 rpm 12” disk, the 45 rpm 7” disk, the LP -- 33 1/3 rpm 12” disk, and the EP -- 33 1/3 7” disk.

 Original Abu-Gosh Music Festival - History 1957-1972
The programme was mostly drawn from Christian liturgical music, the performers were mainly Jewish and the audience was a mixed one - Jews, Christians and Moslems.
That year, 1957, also saw the formation of the "Association of the Abu Gosh-Kiryath Yearim Music Festival" for the purpose of operating this musical venture.
It might be assumed that the audience at the Festival was drawn mainly from the older generation of Israelis originating from Europe who still recalled brilliant performances of church music in their countries of origin and who attend the Abu Gosh concerts for nostalgic reasons.

 Writing about Music
Writing about music is much like writing about (say) painting, in that we take as our objective (a) introducing a performance and (b) sharing our insight into the artfulness of that performance, in language that is as direct and as concrete as we can make it.
The surprising thing (he adds) is that many people who consider themselves qualified music lovers listen at this level only; they go to concerts in order to lose themselves; they use music as a consolation or as an escape.
Copland argues that all music conveys meaning behind the notes and that the meaning behind the notes constitutes what the piece says, what the piece is about.
