We’re rather bemused that this image of a summery cooler has proved so popular. Is everyone caught in the grip of an especially hot season? Is “lavender and electric plum” the hottest palette around? Who knows for sure. We’ll just keep pinning things we think will inspire and delight. Now let’s head to the kitchen for a cool drink…

First, we must address how bizarrely cool this cover of “Neville Thumbcatch” is. Peter Wyngarde is a surreal force of nature.
Secondly, and more germane to our efforts here, the song actually contains some very sage marriage advice: gentlemen, ignore your wives at your peril. In the case of Mr. Thumbcatch, he works too much and has no time to spend with his lovely bride. Mr. Wyngarde, your point is well taken.
Here’s an obscure track from Noreen Corcoran called “Love Kitten” from the heady year of 1963. Sure, it’s not a rockabilly cut; it’s nowhere close. It’s a bubblegum track that practically glows pink. (It is, however, something of a puzzle. It actually sounds like a 50s throwback in some ways. At any rate, it was looking backward instead of toward the radical changes pop music would experience later in the decade.)
But here’s the point: if you’re having a 50s / rockabilly wedding reception, don’t be afraid to venture outside of the known musical territories. “Love Kitten” would sit nicely between a Carl Perkins cut…
…and a Wanda Jackson barnburner.
Get adventurous — there’s so much great obscure 60s pop waiting to be discovered!
