Welcome to Retroville! It's 1957!
In 1957, Jerry Lee Lewis released Great Balls of Fire. Written by Lewis himself, the song featured the hard-driving rhythms popular with the younger crowd, and the piano solos that showcased Lewis' talent for fingering the ivories.

The song appeared in numerous films over the years, the most memorable being the barroom scene with Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis in Top Gun.

The Lyrics:

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much of love drives a man insane
You broke my will, but what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

I laughed at love 'cause I thought it was funny
You came along and you moved me honey
I changed my mind, looking fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

You kissed me baby, woo.....it feels good
Hold me baby, girl just let me love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I'm a tell this world that your mine mine mine mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm really nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

Well kiss me baby, woo-oooooo....it feels good
Hold me baby
I want to love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I got to tell this world that your mine mine mine mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm real nervous 'cause it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

I say goodness gracious great balls of fire
