Saturday Song: Jerry Lee Lewis (Then And Now) “Great Balls Of Fire”

January 10, 2009

Today we have a ‘then and now’ post for Saturday Song.

How the piano does not fall apart in this first video of Jerry Lee Lewis wailing on it from the 1950’s is a mystery.  From the formative days of the music that changed America comes “Great Balls Of Fire”.    Watch Lewis’ curls fly around as he beats the chords out of the piano.

And catch the young Dick Clark!

And what does that same song sound like from ‘The Killer’ in April 2008?  I think it great that the older singers never stop performing.
