Last week, for the very first time – yes, you did read that right – I watched Back to the Future. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Back to the Future is the first of three films that follow Marty and his friend, eccentric inventor Doc Brown, as they travel backwards, and forwards, in time.
If you’re familiar with Back to the Future then you’ll know that there is one foot-tapping song in particular that is associated with the film: Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode’.
In Back to the Future Marty plays a very 1980s rock and roll version of the song at his parents’ school dance, Enchantment Under the Sea, in 1955. However, his version ends up being a little too early for the 1950s kids.
A brilliant, energetic song, I think it is the perfect choice to get rid of those Monday blues. Enjoy!
