An absolutely classic example of this is Teenage Wedding. Check it out.
OOPS SORRY! Just noticed someone earlier had commented on the piano led nature of a lot of the early stuff.
Apparently Chuck joined / took over the Johnnie Johnson Trio, which possibly explained how some of his songs were in un-guitar friendly/ piano keys? As in a previous post, he also was influenced by T-Bone Walker and also Nat King Cole,which maybe carries this theory on, with a lot of their songs being in 'flat' keys too.
Agree with you about the piano on 'You never can tell ' (Teenage wedding), it's ace!

I agree with many comments here that on the surface though quite simple tunes it is the subtle differences between them that give each it's own appeal.
Just read up on the difference between shuffle and swing. I think it's something I can recognise and do but hadn't really thought about the difference in musical terms.
4 favourites of mine are, (personal nostalgia), Think It Over - Buddy Holly, You Got Love - Peanuts Wilson, Cut Across Shorty - Eddie Cochran, Teenage Wedding - Chuck Berry.

As I said above I used to play it without a thought but Ive now developed a kind of ghost note shuffle with the emphasis on 2 and 4 and it feels really good, cant wait to play it with the band.
Of course going from that to "I Shoulda Loved Ya" by NMW kinda focuses the mind a bit....happy days.
