Still Playing Rock 'n' Roll

Note: This is the mix of this song originally included on Bennett's Ben Sage Plenty of Gold album and, as such, includes a spoken-word intro and outro not included on the version that is currently available as part of The Best of Bennett Neuhauser album.

Recorded in the 60th anniversary year of Elvis Presley's first Rock 'n' Roll recording at Sun Studio in Memphis comes Ben Sage's tribute to the music that has endured and carries on today in all its glory, "Still Playing Rock 'n' Roll."

"Still Playing Rock 'n' Roll" is recorded with the free-wheeling spirit of a jam session and, in one way or another, gives a lyrical or audio nod to just about every original rocker from the 50s, and 60s. This song is copyrighted by Bennett Neuhauser, aka Ben Sage, who owns the master recording and all licensing rights through BMI, in the event you might want to license this song for a cover recording, movie soundtrack, commercial or other public use.

They took a little bit of Country and a little bit of Blues
Threw in some Boogie-Woogie and some blue-suede shoes
Then they gave it a back beat like a freight train out of control
And 60 years later We’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll

It started with Elvis who gave it some kicks
And Chuck Berry, baby, who gave it its licks
Then Jerry Lee Lewis took it ridin’ on the piano
And 60 years later We’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll


Little Richard taught the Beatles how to go “Wooooooooooo!”
And they rolled it to the Stones who rolled it to the Who
Then Zeppelin crashed the party and took it out for a stroll
And 60 years later We’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll


Buddy Holly and the Crickets, Hendrix and the Doors
Joplin and the Byrds, and a million more
They took three chords and spun it into gold (It was just three chords and an ever-lovin’ load of soul)
And (yet) 60 years later we’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll

They played it for love, they played for the beat
They played it ‘cause it danced right them out of their seats
But most of all they played it to free their souls
And 60 years later we’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll


Go tell Bill Halley and Antoine Domino
Sixty years later we’re still playing Rock ‘n’ Roll
