The song is called “It Wasn’t Me,” and it comes from rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Chuck Berry. Berry wrote both the lyrics and music for the song, which is the first track listed in Berry’s ninth studio album, titled “Fresh Berry’s.” The record was released in the U.S. in April 1966, and in addition to singing on the song, Berry also plays the guitar.
Berry had a prolific music career, earning the title of “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll.” His first studio album, titled “After School Session,” was released in 1957, and was the beginning of a career that saw him release 20 studio albums in total, along with 10 live albums, with an 11th being released after his death in 2017. 1979’s “Rock It” was his last studio album for a few decades until he released “Chuck” in 2017, the same year of his passing. On “Chuck,” Berry was joined by his children Ingrid and Charles Berry Jr., who played backing instruments for his songs. But Berry’s most well-known song is “Johnny B. Goode,” which was released in 1958 and was on the B-side to his single “Around and Around.” “Johnny B. Goode” is best known for being the song Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly plays with the band at the school dance in the 1985 movie “Back To The Future.”
