1. Great choice!

Johnny B. Goode would be another good one too.

2. Maybellline, No Particular Place To Go, can't go wrong with Chuck :)

 

And Johnny B Goode is certainly one of his best. Been covered so many times, there must be a reason why

Roll Over Beethoven!

4. Johnny B. Goode was so good by CB, no covers seem to have been effective

8. That's thinking outside the box

 

But I love it! Only Steve Winwood song I ever liked. He peaked with his first release at 18

6. Early quasi-rock and roll songs my parents hated but I liked:

Kokomo by Perry Como
Sixty Minute Man by the Dominos
Shake Rattle and Roll by Joe Turner
Blue Yodel #9 - cant remember who by. Bill Monroe?
