“Tutti Frutti’ was written by Little Richard along with Dorothy LaBostrie, who cleaned up the overly sexual lyrics. Recorded in 1955 it became his first major hit record. With its opening cry of "A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-wop-bam-boom!" and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also a model for rock & roll itself. In 2007, it was voted No.1 on Mojo's Top 100 Records That Changed The World, hailing the recording as "the sound of the birth of rock & roll”.
