Favourite songs by Fats Domino?

I've been rediscovering my love for rock n roll recently, and Fats has been my most played artist in the past month. I was wondering if anyone else digs his music? If so, what are some of your favourite tracks from this pioneering legend?

BQ: Favorite artists from the 50s?

Thanks so much

Update:

Hey Harvey, nice to see you :)

    Fats is one of my all time favorites. I've never heard a bad track. Some a little uninspired, some a bit to similar to some others, but never a bad cut.

    Be My Guest is not only my favorite Fats, but one of my favorite songs, which some of my contacts could probably tell you, since I've lost count of how many times I've posted it ;)

    Listen closely and you can hear the inspiration for ska, and in turn, rock steady and reggae.

    A few others I particularly dig-

    I Want To Walk You Home

    (just discovered that most of the Fats available on YouTube is horrid versions, and/or quality)

    BA: Elvis, Tony Bennett, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Anita O'Day, Lefty Frizzell, Webb Pierce, The Drifters, The Coasters...I could go on and on.

    I like Harvey's list.

    Besides the obvious Elvis, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry....etc try The Four Freshman, Dion and the Belmonts, Danny and the Juniors for a good 50's listen.

    "Let The Four Winds"

    Surprised at the quality. Always a favorite, with that New Orleans beat pulsing underneath.

    So much going on in the 50s, we forget what a wild, creative period was underway. All the dismay from parents while Pres Eisenhower smiled and said "Teenagers are like airplanes. We only hear about that ones that crash." So, I won't take up space listing the many, many artists who fill my collection.
