§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Rock and Roll Music

{Song #46 « Song #47 » Song #48}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #47 is Rock and Roll Music, written and originally recorded by Chuck Berry, which became a hit single in 1957, reaching #8 in the U.S. chart, and was later covered by many artists, notably The Beatles and The Beach Boys.

Chuck Berry's version is, of course, the original and is ranked number 128 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. But I actually prefer The Beatles' rendition. Go figure. It's classic rock and roll.
