Morning Song – Lucille

April 26, 2017

Like Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” (also released in 1957), Little Richard’s “Lucille” give you some appreciation for the perspective of the censors of the day who were sure that rock & roll was leading the youth of America straight down the path to moral degeneracy.

Not to mention inspiring two generations of singers to try (unsuccessfully!) to duplicate that thing he does with his voice at the end of the second syllable.
