Potsie and Happy Days – my Music A to Z


No I didn’t forget my theme for the A to Z challenge was music and not television. But Happy Days, my all-time favorite television show, has everything to do with my favorite music. I was watching Happy Days from as early as I can remember – four years old, maybe even three. It was where I first heard Splish Splash by Bobby Darin – of course Potsie was singing it. It was also where I first heard Elvis Presley – on the jukebox at Arnold’s. Although Potsie did sing All Shook Up, and Fonzie sang Heartbreak Hotel. Hmmm, I wonder if that’s why it is my favorite Elvis song? And one of my favorite episodes is when Joanie has a crush on Potsie after he sings Put Your Head on My Shoulder to her. I think when I was little, I wanted to be Joanie – and had a bit of a crush on Potsie. Because of Happy Days, I love 1950s music and Elvis and Bobby are two of my favorites.

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.

  1. Anson Williams has such a wonderful voice and I was surprised he did not have more musical success. Perhaps he decided to concentrate on the directing and producing of television instead.
