Good Golly Miss Molly was written by John Marascalco and Robert Blackwell.Little Richard first heard the phrase ‘Good Golly Miss Molly’ from a DJ named Jimmy Pennick.He modified the lyrics into the more suggestive ‘Good Golly Miss Molly/You sure like to ball,’at the time the most common meaning for ‘balling’ was dancing.
Little Richard has admitted that he took the intro to the song from the Ike Turner/Jackie Brenston 1951 song ‘Rocket 88.’

The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
523-Grandmaster Melle Mel-White Lines(Don’t Don’t Do It.)
1984-Number 7 single.
Best Bit-At 3.23.This is who invented the term ‘Hip-Hop?’
Keith ‘Cowboy’ Wiggins a member of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five has been credited with coining the term in 1978 while teasing a friend who had just joined the US Army by scat singing the made up words ‘hip/hop/hip/hop’ in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of marching soldiers.
When originally released on Sugar Hill Records the song was credited to Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel.This was done to mislead the general public into believing that Grandmaster Flash participated on the record,when in fact he played no part and had already left Sugar Hill Records the previous year.
White Lines samples a song called ‘Cavern’ by the band Liquid Liquid,because they hadn’t given their permission Liquid Liquid sued but never received any royalties as Sugar Hill Records were declared bankrupt.The songs lyrics were written by Melle Mel and Sugar Hill Records owner Sylvia Robinson(see best songs 597.)

524-Stealers Wheel-Stuck In The Middle With You.
1973-Number 8 single.
Best Bit-At 1.03.It’s the dogs..
Stealers Wheel were a Scottish Folk/Rock band formed in 1972 by Joe Egan and the late Gerry Rafferty,they split in 1975 and briefly reformed in 2008.

The song refers to people in the music industry,the management and executives of record labels,(the clown and the jokers.)
The band had to reluctantly do a promotion in a fancy London restaurant and the lyrics tell the story of them trying to get out of the entire thing,which they detested.
In 1992 the song was brought to the attention of a whole new generation when Quentin Tarantino chose to use it in the scene which the character of Mr Blonde taunts and tortures a policeman in the film Reservoir Dogs.
