50's Rock & Roll mix help.

I'm trying to make a 50's or early Rock & Roll mix. I've got 19 so far, but could probably add 20 or so more (songs were so damn short in the 50's.)
I'd love any female artists, as I can't think of any until Motown exploded in the 60's.


Oh, and damn, this is some good shit.


1. Great Balls Of Fire / Jerry Lee Lewis
2. That'll Be The Day / Buddy Holly & The Crickets
3. The Great Pretender / The Platters
4. Long Tall Sally / Little Richard
5. Oh, What A Dream / Johnny Cash
6. Wake Up Little Susie / The Everly Brothers
7. (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock / Bill Haley & The Comets
8. Blueberry Hill / Fats Domino
9. Blue Suede Shoes / Carl Perkins
10.Shake, Rattle And Roll / Elvis Presley
11.Red Hot / Billy Lee Riley
12.Tutti Frutti / Little Richard
13.Red Cadillac And A Black Moustache / Warren Smith
14.Rockhouse / Roy Orbison
15.Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On / Jerry Lee Lewis
16.Sweet Little Rock 'n Roller / Chuck Berry
17.Hound Dog / Elvis Presley
18.Walk The Line / Johnny Cash
19.C'mon Everybody / Eddie Cochrane

Definitely Sam Cooke - I recommend Live at the Harlem Square Club.

Also, don't forget La Bamba by Richie Valens.

I'm not expressly familiar with her music, but the 50s rock and roll female performer I've heard the most about is Wanda Jackson. Maybe you'd want to follow up on that.
