    I don't really have a favorite... but the songs listed in this thread certainly make for a good playlist :)

    Ever listened to "Deep Feeling" ?
    Its an instrumental played on a steel guitar by Chuck himself.
    That guy had SOUL.

    My favorite Chuck Berry song?

    Every single one that he wrote!!! :D

    Chuck Berry laid down the foundation of rock 'n roll and literally everybody on this planet was influenced by him. Heck, I even nicknamed my school bus "Nadine" after his song over the lyric "...Got on a city bus and found a vacant seat, when I thought I saw my future bride walking down the street. I shouted to the driver, 'Hey conductor, you must slow down, I think I see her, please let me off this bus'. Nadine? Honey is that you?..."

    "As I was motorvatin' over the hill
    I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville"

    Solid Gold lyrics, no BS and straight to the point.

    My favorite Chuck Berry song is the first one I ever heard and the only one I knew for a long time (also one that probably wouldn't be on many other people's lists): Almost Grown.

    Great lyrics all over that song. "I was campaign shouting like a Southern diplomat" is a favorite of mine.
