Little Richard

Rock’n’Roll during the sixties

Hello everyone. For the first article of the month. I want to make an article in relation with our theme at school, The history of United states and particularly Segregation during the sixties. So we’re going to talk about Little Richards.

Little Richard or we can also called him by his real name, Richard Wayne Pennieman. He is an American author, pianist, artist and actor. Born the 5th 1932 december. Little Richards is both a legend of the rock’n’roll during the fifties and one of the first musical artist to recognize favor of white public. In 2008, the prestigious magazine Rolling stones considered him like one the best singer of the world. He makes incredible songs like Good Golly, Miss Molly, Rit It Up, Lucille or Tutti Frutti. One of his famous song was Long tall Sally and she was used (reprise) by many artist or band like The Beatles. I give you the clip video of Long Tall Sally with the lyrics of the music.

« Gonna tell Aunt Mary ’bout Uncle John,
He claim he has the misery but he’s havin’ a lot of fun,
Oh baby, yeah baby, woo, baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight yeah

Well long, tall Sally
She’s built for speed, she got
Everything that Uncle John need, oh baby,
Yeah baby, woo baby,
Havin’ me some fun tonight yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with long tall Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin’ and he ducked back in the alley oh baby,
Yeah baby, woo baby,
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah ow

Well, long, tall Sally
She’s built for speed, she got
Everything that Uncle John need oh baby,
Yeah baby, woo baby,
Havin’ me some fun tonight yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with bald head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin’ and he ducked back in the alley oh baby,
Yeah baby, woo baby,
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah

We gonna have some fun tonight,
We gonna have some fun tonight, woo
Have some fun tonight, everything’s all right,
Have some fun, have me some fun tonight »

It was important for me to make an article about this man. Not only because he is a legend but also Litlle Richard inspired The beatles, Elton John, David bowie or a an amazing singer in 1980 Prince. He influenced his era with his rebel and personalty moreover with his clothes style

I like him, especially his musics, Long Tall Sally is for myself the best. I appreciate this kind of music. It was a time where music still cool and fun. Of course, this is just my subjectif point of view. That’s all for me, see you for the next article. It could probably about a movie, Bye and take care yourself.

  1. Little Richard… ! What a voice! I truly like his voice… Unfortunately I don’t know a lot about him and his songs, I know the most famous such as Tutti Frutti and Good Golly Miss Molly. This song is very cool and makes me want to live during the sixties in the rock’n’roll universe!

  2. This is what I like about him ! He’s very sensational with his rock’n’roll universe
