Too obvious! lol. That was undoubtedly the first Chuck song that I remember as I was born after his great string of hits. I still remember hearing it on the radio in '72 when I was 5 or 6. It made me giggle and I think I was obsessed with the song for a time. Actually, My Ding a Ling was not a Berry composition but a Dave Bartholomew tune from the early 50's. Bartholomew should have sued just as Berry sued the Beach Boys over Surfin' USA.
Ha, I did not know that. It was sad/funny during the tourney games today the commentators during the break tried to do a tribute and comments were from Barkley all about Mo-Town stuff and people and another one of them chimed in about a Little Richard song, thinking it was Chuck Berry song. Keep in mind it was all black guys doing this, not the usual white guys who make "all look the same" type of mistakes.
