Song of the day: Chuck Berry- Maybellene
Little Richard was one of the first rock ‘n rollers, together with this man: Chuck Berry. In 1955, he made a song out of an old fiddle tune and told the story of a broken romance, together with a race between hot rods. These two would later be big themes in the rock ‘n roll. Berry brought this song, together with a blues song, to a producer. This man had little interest in the blues song, but liked this. His choice was right: the song would be number 5 in the US pop charts! Enjoy
