I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Today’s song comes from the musical genius nicknamed “The Killer” thanks to his wildly energetic stage performances. He is regarded as one of the architects of rock & roll and helped make Sun Records the mega success it became. He was also part of the label’s Million Dollar Quartet along with Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash & Carl Perkins. His extraordinary talent and piano playing style brought him almost immediate success, but it was with this song that he became a worldwide sensation.
