Are these Golden Oldies real or fake?

"Rollercoaster Blues" by Johnny and the Two Tones


Ah, the sweet sounds of yesteryear. 

Nothing can evoke those sun-soaked memories like the right song. A melody can be a time machine, taking us right back to when we first heard it. Sometimes, Oldies are a scrapbook.

Whether it's high definition or low definition, some of these Oldies fit no definition. In fact, they're not even real! See if you can figure out which songs are real and which ones are fake. Good luck, and be sure to share your score and your opinion in the comments section below!

17/25 and I thot I could spot the real from the fake quite easily! Dagnabbit, doggone it, consarnit, as I heard on a comedy sketch long ago. I shudda remembered Witch Doctor was done by Ross Bagdasarian and the only Pitney was Gene, and the only Vinton was Bobby! Sheeeesh!
