good rockin' tonight

It's the goddamn weekend; so, there better be some good rockin' tonight.

Twin Peaks, "Flowers in the Dustbin" Elvis, Elizabeth, Chuck Berry, X (& rock-a-billy punk music and punks with "a nice set of tats") and Marliyn Monroe are some reasons that I am getting more into the 1950s right now. (I know, I know: "You were obsessed with 40s--make up your mind," Let's face it, I'm just obsessed with the *past* and I have been my whole life).
But it's this song and the way it jumps and beats at you with an overt sexuality that really does it for me. I can't get enough of it. I got it off my dad--his "Loud, Fast and Out Of Control" 50s Rock box set.
Gawd I love it. It is so fucking punk rock. And it's 1958. Hell yes.

(E. Cochran - J. Capehart)
Well c'mon everybody and let's get together tonight
I got some money in my jeans
And I'm really gonna spend it right
Well, I been doin' my homework all week long
Now the house is empty and my folks are gone
Ooh, c'mon everybody (Let's get together)
Well my baby's number one
But I'm gonna dance with three or four
And the house will be a-shakin'From the bare feet a-slappin' on the floor
Hell when you hear the music you just can't sit still
If your brother won't rock, then your sister will
Ooh, c'mon everybody (Let's get together)
Hell we'll really have a party
But we gotta put a guard outside
If the folks come home, I'm afraid they gonna have my hide
There'll be no more movies for a week or two
No more running 'round with the usual crew
Who cares?
C'mon everybody ... c'mon everybody
