Thanks for the heads up, gotta check that one out
For me, it was Reelin and Rockin.
He was the master lyricist, who could write "Well I looked at my watch and to my surprise
I was dancing with a woman that was twice my size" , and have everybody love it? It was one of those go to it songs that would bring people to the dance floor. Chuck's music was therapeutic to get people to forget about their troubles, and take them back to that happy place.
RIP, Mr Berry.

Sweet Little Sixteen.
Lots of great ones listed here and I don't know if there is a chuck berry song I don't like so in a list like this I try and pull out songs no one else has said like this one
You Never Can Tell & Memphis Tennessee.
Chuck Berry had to many great songs for me to narrow down which one I like best!
That's the one , thanks Zack
Besides the raw, and almost anarchic sound of "Maybellene", this has always been a favorite
It was ever better when i figured out that the main verse chord was just a C7 with a bent string to add that off kilter sound
And this has always been a personal, albeit sentimental favorite for the line "In the heat of the day down in Mobile, Alabama..." (that being my hometown).
The one where he didn't poop on people.
Here are three obscure ones by Chuck that I always liked -
Let's Boogie -
Go Go Go -
Dear Dad -
All three have those crazy wonderful Chuck Berry lyrics
Maybe this is another thread topic but did you have a good, or bad perspective before you saw his tribute to Chuck?
Mmmmmm... just maybe a little more respect for Gene . Never knew the way he grew up , coming from Isreal , learning a new language , and all that good stuff . Sometimes I don't think any of us give a second thought to the roads the stars have traveled , how they got to where they are now . We all see the glamour , not the heartaches that get them there
Wait a minute! Weren't you in the KISS tribute band, KISSMANIA, playing the demon/Gene Simmons part?
Rich: I know that is you, under the makeup, dragon boots and prosthetic tongue (it looks so real!).
ya caught me ........
For the sake of accuracy Milo De Venus was a beautiful lass she had the world in the palm of her hand - do I hear any advance on Milo De Venus? Clever stuff Venus de Milo had no arms and Chuck reversed it. Unfortunately cause of Chuck I can never quite remember which way round it's supposed to be. Imagine me being corrected at posh dinner parties when I mention Milo de Venus.
Anyway I like "Nadine" and "Oh Carol", Oh and the new one they're playing on the radio all the time over here in the UK - something about an itty bitty boy
There are dozens of great choices, but to me, it has to be Johnny B. Goode. He crushed it so hard with that one, I can't imagine a more perfect example of his craft.
it's hard to argue with this opinion
