“Do You Remember These” is a song written by Don Reid, Harold Reid and Larry Lee, and recorded by American country music group The Statler Brothers. It was released in March 1972 as the first single from the album Innerview. The song reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. “Do You Remember These” was also The Statler Brothers sole entry on the Easy Listening chart, where it peaked at No. 18.
The song was a landmark-of-sorts for the Statlers, as they began recording songs appealing to nostalgia. While part of that repertoire included covers of oldies and standards, several of their other biggest hits had lyrics that recalled good times of years past.
In the case of “Do You Remember These”, the Statlers recall 1950s popular culture and good times. Pop culture references include Saturday morning serials, big-screen cowboy heroes including Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, flat top haircuts, Studebakers, radio programs including The Shadow and Your Hit Parade, aviator and coonskin caps, penny loafers, Howdy Doody, early rock and roll music (including “Tutti Fruitti” and “Blue Suede Shoes”), sock hops and the Sadie Hawkins dance, “Veronica and Betty,” and celebrities of the time, such as Charles Atlas and James Dean. Other references are of carefree life in general, such as lemonade stands, root beer floats and knock knock jokes.
