Little Richard's 30 Greatest Songs

Posted in Entertainment on Jan 20th, 2019


From raucous rock and roll to soul-crushing R&B, Richard Wayne Penniman, better known as Little Richard, was the master of all things musical. He made his fans dance, clap, swing, weep, and feel with his every note, earning praise from his fellow musicians as well as Grammy awards, an NAACP Image Award, and the American Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. Little Richard got in on the ground floor of the birth of rock and roll and added a powerful, unbridled tempo as well as a flair no other artist could match.

30. True Fine Mama

Released as the B-side to “Ooh! My Soul,” “True Fine Mama” didn’t receive the same amount of attention or praise as other hits on Little Richard’s first album with the Specialty Records label, but what would become his signature sound soars through on this 1958 track.
