Eddie Cochran

C'mon Everybody

Song Review by

"School's over, the parents are out of the house, and I got a few bucks in my jeans." Great rock & roll songs have been written with similar lyrics, but rarely better than this. Like Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran had that rare ability to convey the teenage 1950s sense of reality and charm, and he succeeded in grand style with this rock & roll classic. Musically, the insistent acoustic guitar and looping bass guitar pattern (both probably performed by Cochran) are at the song's core. In fact, there isn't a prominent electric guitar on the record (very rare for the time), which is a true salute to quality of the power of the song.
