I don't think anyone in this forum but me connects with this old mellow music. But that's OK, I'm enjoying indulging myself!

Arguably THE best vocal group in the 50s doo-wop era, the Platters began the movement to forge a musical bridge between the swing bands of the 40s and early rock and roll of the 50s with their smooth ballads. They had an impressing string of high-charting hits between 1955 and 1968. Here are their #1 charting songs:
