The white youth of the 1950s weren't all that crazy about the safe, easy-listening, buttoned-up pop music their parents enjoyed. Balladeers like Perry Como sang stuff like: 

And that did little to arouse excitement. Teens perceived pop hits like Eileen Barton's "If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd've Baked a Cake" as nauseating, and crooners like Patti Page who asked "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?" left teenagers bored, seeking something far more titillating. 

Jimmy Boyd's holiday smash, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," might've had potential had the song not really been about a naïve child catching his parents in a Christmas-themed embrace. '50s pop spoke to adults, and in some cases, young children—not quite the stuff teens wanted to hear at school dances, listen to in their cars, or have as their soundtrack to after-school soda shop dates.
