Originally published in 1940, this became an international hit in 1956 for Fats Domino and has become a rock and roll standard. It reached No.2 for three weeks on the Billboard Top 40 charts, becoming his biggest pop hit, and spent eight non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on the R&B Best Sellers chart. It was also ranked 82 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and was Domino’s greatest hit.
