I’ve rarely liked listening to other people have fun and “My Ding-A-Ling” is no exception. You can’t deny they’re having it, though, except maybe the people who won’t sing, pursued by Chuck Berry with a slightly worrying fervour (obviously everyone was singing, but he still sounds strangely like Graham Norton’s character on Father Ted). Berry’s enjoying himself most of all – or else he fakes it very well – so I’ve no time for the people who think of this as a blot on the man’s copybook, and good for him if he made some money off it. Hard to imagine this scrappy bag of dick jokes being any kind of hit even a few years later, though.
