Well, after watching the movie Pulp Fiction, when many know the famous scene where John Travolta and Uma Thurman danced to this song (C'est La Vie) in a restaurant, I decided to find this song on YouTube. I found the original audio to C'est La Vie, but I also found this video -- and was memorized.
The feel, simplicity, swagger, creativity and genius, Berry has in this performance. The way he sings, it looks so simple and admirable. In an age where singers rely so much on autotune and beats and hooks, all Berry needed was a guitar and mic, and make a performance look magical.
In this video, I love how -- all in the same time -- he's singing the song, moving on the stage and telling little jokes after his sings a lyric, is pure genius.
Berry started rock-and-roll. He's the pioneer. What you see or seen from great rock musicians like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Billie Joe Armstrong, Anthony Kiedis, Mick Jagger, they're all students of Berry. Without Chuck Berry they'd be no rock-and-roll.
Paul McCartney ain't got shit on Chuck Berry -- yea, I said it.
If you're young and into singing acoustic music, I advise you to study this man.
