Play with rock and pop legends Chuck Berry and Jackson 5 this week!

One of the most popular songs in rock and roll history is Johnny B. Goode, by the late Chuck Berry. The song was released in 1958 through famous Chess Records in Chicago, Illinois. Upon its release it charted on Billboard Hot R&B Sides, as well as the Hot 100. Rolling Stone Magazine declared it #7 on its list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included the song in its list of 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. Berry sings his personal life-inspired lyrics over a swinging blues progression played by the rhythm section with twangy lead guitar riffs. At just about 60 years later, theres no denying the song still swings; a true staple of rock and roll.

Keeping up with the theme of record breaking songs, I Want You Back by Jackson 5 released in 1969 and stood at #1 on the Soul singles chart as well as the Billboard Hot 100. It was included in Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time as well as standing at #9 of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs Since 1963. It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame deeming it a musical recording of lasting qualitative and historical significance. Everything about this song is incredible: The syncopated rhythms between the rhythm section, the funk and glam tone quality on the guitar, Michael Jacksons killer lead vocal line with supportive harmonies and backup vocals make this song a pure pop gem. By no means would it be complete without the absolute monster bass part- also noted as one of the greatest bass lines of all time! This song will definitely be a challenge but thats why we wanted it back!
