Who doesn’t love a good sing along?
Not me! I LOVE sing alongs.

A short list of sing alongs that I’ve gone to:

  • Nightmare before Christmas – a midnight showing!
  • Little Mermaid – Where Gwen Stefani snuck in at the last minute with her kid. And then had to sneak back out because even though we were in Hollywood, people were acting like they’ve never seen a rock star with a kid.
  • The Sound of Music – YOU GUYS. This one is the best! You can dress up and they have everybody in costume walk the stage and it’s at the Hollywood Bowl so you can also drink! Please note that the pre-show and mid-show stuff makes this sing along the LONGEST SING ALONG EVER, but. YOU CAN ALSO DRINK.

I haven’t gone to a Frozen sing along. Although I’ve heard that I should. Because I STILL haven’t seen it.

I used to take the brat because those things are for kids. So I would bring one for form. I don’t have any “kids” anymore. So I guess I’m gonna start borrowing my nieces for this kinda shit. Or not. Because really, I DO WHAT I WANT. INCLUDING GOING TO SING ALONGS.

What does ANY of this have to do with the BHFOTD?
Well you guys..It’s Friday. And I’ve been busy. And so this BHFOTD is gonna be short(ish) and sweet. And about Chuck Berry.

Chuck Berry is one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. He refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music.

Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its opening in 1986, with the comment that he “laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance.” Berry is included in several Rolling Stone “Greatest of All Time” lists, including being ranked fifth on their 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll included three of Chuck Berry’s songs: “Johnny B. Goode,” “Maybellene,” and “Rock and Roll Music.”

Berry STILL continues to play live. He just had his 200th show at Blueberry Hill (restaurant/club) on January 15th. OF THIS YEAR. If that’s not rock and roll, nothing is!

I feel like everybody should have a favorite Chuck Berry song. My personal favorite is “Brown-Eyed Handsome Man”.
For reasons. Hey, baby, hey.

But did you know that Chuck Berry only had ONE Number one pop hit? Like to hear it, here it go! You’re welcome guys.

Happy Friday!
