Song of the day: Little Richard- Tutti Frutti

little richard

This the breakthrough single of Little Richard, which he wrote with Dorothy LaBostrie in 1955! The song includes a drum rhythm which Little Richard sings, and together with the fast rhythm, this would be the model for rock ‘n roll. In a way, this was the basis for rock ‘n roll! It was born out of frustration during a recording session, and after a little adjustment, this was perfect for a record. And so pop music started! Enjoy
