Little Richard's my favourite out of those you listed and boy, did Paul do justice to his songs in his prime. I mean, Long Tall Sally? Kansas City? Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey? Lucille? That's some of the most kick-ass, intoxicating rock 'n' roll the band has ever cut. A vocal duet between the two would have worked out great.
I voted Little Richard too, because I love his crazy side on stage. And moreover, that feels the effects by listening to him singing. I shall have liked that the Beatles play his Tutti Frutti
or Cochran’s Somethin 'Else
! Lewis, I’m also a fan of what he does. He’s likewise crazy with his piano.

Naturally, this great rock'n'roll hit was the object of numerous covers, among which here are some famous examples:
To note that, just like the Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis had sung Long Tall Sally
too at the Star-Club!
