National Day of Rock 'n' Roll

Today, July 7th, is the National Day of Rock 'n' Roll.

It's difficult to settle on a particular song to celebrate the day due to the abundance of great rock songs that have been recorded over the years. That said, I'll go with these two:

1.) "More Than a Feeling" – released by Boston in 1976. It's a forever favorite of mine. The song was written by Boston founder and band member Tom Scholz.

It has been included on VH1's list of the Top 100 Hard Rock Songs, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll, Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and Ultimate Classic Rock's list of the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs.


2.) "Johnny B. Goode" – a rock 'n' roll classic written by Chuck Berry in 1955 and recorded by the performer in 1958.

It has been included on a number of "Greatest Songs" and "Greatest Guitar Songs" lists, and in 1977, it was one of the 27 songs included on the Voyager Golden Record.
