I love Chuck Berry songs, but most of them sound the same. One of my favorites is one that is different AMOST GROWN was used in American Graffiti.

Chubby Checker stole The Twist from Hank Ballard and The Midnighters. They sound almost the same. The name Chubby checker is also a ripoff of Fats Domino.

8 of 15, say earth than see on the Beatles?, c’mon! Being from his hometown, I knew every Chuck Berry song in the book. He was smoking hot in the early 60’s and was a regular contributor to many groups’ recordings including of
Course the Beatles, by far the greatest rock group there ever was and ever will be. Roll Over Beethoven was a brilliant composition, but my all time fave of his was Nadine, why do you do those things you used to do? Who remembers that he was arrested after having been caught installing 2 way mirrors in the ladies room at his restaurant in Wentzville MO? For a near museum to his great rock n roll legacy, visit Blueberry Hill Bar and Restaurant as well as the American headquarters of championship dart throwers in suburban St. Louis.
I don't remember Chuck Berry ever recording a song called Nadine. Are you sure you're not thinking of Maybelline? (And did you know that his only number one hit was My Ding-A-Ling in 1972?)

That’s because there’s not much else to listen to! I thought music took a turn for the better when Grunge came in the late 90s. But sadly, that didn’t last, either…music now generally sucks (imo…)
