While looking for a few songs to post on twitter and Facebook, I found myself going back in music time yesterday. Starting off with a song from the 1950’s, I gradually worked my way back through a few decades. I was surprised to find a lot of video’s from the 1920’s on YouTube.

This video shows clips from the Roaring 20’s, a time when many people “defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards”.  Sounds like fun to me!

After watching this footage, I want to cut my hair to my chin, find a flapper hat and do the shimmy.

It’s been said that Bessie Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920’s. What a gem this video is:

What do you think? Would you like to live in the 1920’s? Ladies, you could wear your hair in a Finger Wave or maybe some Clara Bow inspired make-up?
