#10 Pop #10 R&B

Composer and performer Charles Edward Anderson Berry is better know to you and me as the Father of Rock & Roll — Chuck Berry!

Just watch this vintage YouTube clip of the man performing “No Particular Place To GO” and you will see what  I mean.  No additional verbage is required (LOL).  I’ll just add the lyrics for you to sing along with Chuck!

“No Particular Place To Go” Composed by Chuck Berry

Ridin’ along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin’ wild

Cruisin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go.

Ridin’ along in my automobile
I was anxious to tell her the way I feel,
So I told her softly and sincere,
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin’ more and drivin’ slow,
With no particular place to go.

No particular place to go,
So we parked way out on the Kokomo
The night was young and the moon was gold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you imagine the way I felt?
I couldn’t unfasten her safety belt!

Ridin’ along in my calaboose
Still tryin’ to get her belt aloose
All the way home I held a grudge,
For the safety belt that
wouldn’t budge
Cruisin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go.

P.S. Wonder why in the the universe this tune never got higher than #10 on the charts: makes no sense — does it?!

Musically Yours,
