I remember listening to Tutti Fruiti way back in the very early years of my life.

At the time, I was not aware and probably could not comprehend, the tidal waves that Richard Wayne Penniman was sending into the music establishment of the time.

But historians and history have recorded and saved those tidal waves.

Music has grown because of Little Richard.

Music has become more challenging because of Little Richard.

I look around nowadays, and wonder who might be the next Little Richard.

Sadly, I see no one.

But I remain hopeful, because artists like Little Richard come along only once every few decades.

Godspeed Richard Wayne Penniman.

And thank you.

Good golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.
Good golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.
From the early, early mornin' till the early, early night
You can see miss Molly rockin' at the house of blue light.
Good golly, miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.
I am going to the corner, gonna buy a diamond ring.
When she hugs me and kiss me make me ting-a-ling-a-ling
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.
Good golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
Good golly, Miss Molly, sure like to ball.
When you're rockin' and a rollin' can't hear your momma call.

RIP
