Tutti Frutti Tops World-changing Hit List

LITTLE RICHARD's 1956 hit TUTTI FRUTTI has topped a new UK poll to find the 100 Records That Changed The World. The record, dubbed "a torrent of filth wailed by a bisexual alien," beat The Beatles' I Want To Hold Your Hand and Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel to claim the top spot on the new list compiled by superstar panellists for the new issue of Mojo magazine. The eclectic panel of stars who took part in the voting included Bjork, Tori Amos, Tom Waits, Brian Wilson, Pete Wentz and Steve Earle. And Mojo editors claim the 100 "albums, singles and 78s" that made the list make up "the most influential and inspirational recordings ever made." Hailing Tutti Frutti the sound of the birth of rock 'n' roll, Mojo states, "One can only imagine how it must've sounded when the song exploded across the airwaves." The top 10 on Mojo's 100 Records That Changed The World list is: 1. Tutti Frutti by Little Richard 2. I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles 3. Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis Presley 4. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan 5. Autobahn by Kraftwerk 6. King of The Delta Blues Singers by Robert Johnson 7. The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground + Nico 8. Anthology of American Folk Music (Various Artists) 9. What'd I Say by Ray Charles 10. God Save The Queen by Sex Pistols
