Song of the Day: Jerry Lee Lewis “Great Balls of Fire”


With this weather I thought “Great Balls of Fire” would be a perfect Song of the Day! It was written by Otis Blackwell, performed by Jerry Lee Lewis and released in 1957. Jerry Lee Lewis sounds like a man who is playing the piano like his life depends on it. This song is short and simple but with the pounding piano it really gets you into it. Which is probably why it was ranked as the 96th greatest song ever by Rolling Stone. Enjoy this oldie but goodie and stay cool!
