This is so much fun! Chuck Berry and Bruce Springsteen perform Johnny B Goode live. Springsteen is like a kid who has just seen his idol.

the real question remains who own the song.

Chuck Berry. He wrote Johnny B Goode. He also wrote Maybellene.

Joseph1832 has given me an idea. The next set of songs are songs that I've always heard but (apart from the Elvis songs) up till this minute I don't know who originally sang them. They've been sung by very many singers, but I don't know who originally sang them.

This is one of the origibs of rock music. Many people have covered this song including Bill Haley, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley. I think Elvis' version was the first that I heard. But the song was originally done by this man.

This video is of a live performance.

Big Joe Turner - Shake, Rattle N Roll (1954).

This song was done by many legends including Chuck Berry, Chubby Checker and Elvis Presley, but I've just discovered that it was originally written for this guy.


Bill Haley and his Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1954).

Oh wow! That's true! He wrote this song! If I remember correctly, he performed this song at the closing ceremony of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

So many people have covered this song that I didn't realise that he originally sang it. I've also just learnt the correct spelling of the title of the song.

This song has been covered by Elvis Presley, the Beatles and very many other singers.


Wop baba loo bap wop bam boo.


Little Richard - Tutti Fruti (1955).

I was wrong! He didn't perform Tutti Fruti at Atlanta '96. He performed Good Golly Miss Molly and Long Tall Sally.

Long Tall Sally! That's another song that has been covered many times.


Little Richard, Stevie Wonder and others turned the end of the closing ceremony of Atlanta '96 into a rock concert. I remember that Stevie's mic wasn't working at first and Little Richard had to tell the sound engineers to turn Stevie's mic up.

However this video is from the official Olympics Channel and so those parts have been cut out.

This is Little Richard performing Good Golly Miss Molly and Long Tall Sally at Atlanta '96.

Aha! I've found it! This is the exact video that was in that playlist.

I thought that they originally sang this song, but I've just discovered that I was wrong. They were backup singers on the original, but that version was not as successful as this.


The Mamas & The Papas - California Dreaming (1965).

I've watched this video many times (in fact I'm certain that I've posted it on Nairaland before) and I also know that this was staged, but man, this was a lot of fun!

It's enjoyable every time I watch it.

I think Michael got this idea from his time with the Jacksons. He and his brothers often staged disagreements while performing on stage and they were always a lot of fun.


Michael collaborated with Slash a lot of times. Slash played the opening riff on the Black or White song, he played the main riff and guitar solo on DS and he also played on Give In To Me.


Michael and Slash were performing and then Slash got carried away. He started playing and he didn't stop when he was supposed to. Michael did everything he could to try to stop him, but it didn't work. Even the security guards couldn't stop him.
