Get A Job 45 by The Silhouettes

“Get A Job” by The Silhouettes is one of those songs that will always be associated with 1950s rock and roll.

The Silhouettes were a Philadelphia Do-wop group originally formed as the Gospel Tornadoes. They consisted of lead singer William Horton, tenor Richard Lewis, baritone Earl Beal, and bass Raymond Edwards.

“Get A Job” reached number two on Best Sellers In Stores Chart and number three on Most Played By DJ’s Chart. But on Feb. 24, 1958, it topped the Hot 100 for a two week run. It has since been a staple of oldies radio.
