327 – Chuck Berry – No particular place to go (1964)


Escrita por Chuck Berry, foi gravada em 25 de março de 1964 em Chicago e lançada em maio de 1964 num compacto. A música é a mesma de School days. Foi produzida pelos irmaos donos da Chess Records, Phil e Leonard. 
 
Chegou ao numero 6 no Canada, 3 no Reino Unido, 10 nos charts pop americanos e 10 nos charts de Rhythm and Blues. 

Foi regravada por Status Quo, The Troggs e alguns outros artistas. 

A letra:

Ridin' along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin' wild

Cruisin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go.

Ridin' along in my automobile
I'm anxious to tell her the way I feel,
So I told her softly and sincere,
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin' more and drivin' slow,
With no particular place to go.

No particular place to go,
So we parked way out on the Kokomo
The night was young and the moon was bold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you imagine the way I felt?
I couldn't unfasten her safety belt!

Ridin' along in my calaboose
Still tryin' to get her belt unloose
All the way home I held a grudge,
But the safety belt, it wouldn't budge

Cruisin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go.
