Johnny B. Goode – 24K Gold Music Shows
Many songs take credit for shaping rock and roll but few have reached the heights of “Johnny B. Goode”. It is now one of the most recognizable songs in the history of popular music. It was the first rock and roll song of its kind, calling attention to the fame and fortune that a musical career could bring. It tells the story of Johnny and his talent for playing his guitar, along with his mother’s dreams and aspirations for her son, that maybe someday his name would be in lights. This upbeat, energetic song was written and recorded by the legendary Chuck Berry in 1958. He has said that the song is somewhat about his own life. After the chorus goes a few rounds of “go, Johnny” even the causal listener finds themselves somehow rooting for Johnny and hoping that he does well.
