'''Jerry Lee Lewis''' (born 29 September 1935) is an American rock and country pioneer, as well as one of the Million Dollar Quartet with Music/ElvisPresley, Carl Perkins and Music/JohnnyCash, fellow [[Music/SamPhillips Sun Records]] artists. Known primarily for hits such as "[[{{Fireballs}} Great Balls of Fire]]", "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On", his SignatureStyle of piano-playing (flamboyant, with a lot of ''glissando'', getting up on the piano, etc.), and the [[KissingCousins scandal]] that almost completely derailed his career. Later on, he reinvented himself as a fairly successful mainstream CountryMusic artist.

* CatchPhrase:
** "Think about it, darlin'"
** "When you're good, you're good!" (in conversation, not in song)



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In his 1980 song "Rockin' My Life Away", which was actually a fairly prominent country hit, he somehow manages to slip in "mother-humpin'" in the middle of one of the last verses.
* IAmSong: Quite a few, beginning in the fifties with "Lewis Boogie". Also, "Rockin' My Life Away", "Boogie Woogie Country Man", "Honky Tonk Rock 'N' Roll Piano Man".



* LyricalTic: He would often substitute the word "me" in lyrics with "Jerry Lee", i.e. "If you see Corrina, send her on home to Jerry Lee..."
* OdeToIntoxication: "Drinkin' Wine Spo-dee O-dee"
