I absolutely love Jailhouse Rock by Frankie Lymon. He completely makes that song his own. What a voice that guy had!

LL Cool Joe: That's cool you know Frankie's version because not too many people do. It's too bad he wasn't able to make the transition once his voice changed because he still had the talent.
