"Hound Dog," Big Mama Thornton



The original recorded version of the song written by a couple of obscure songwriters named Leiber and Stoller... Number One on the R&B charts for 14 weeks in 1952. A little gem of music history.

1. Obscure? Ha!

Maybe when they wrote HD, but boy did they have the hits. Wrote a lot for Coasters, Drifters with Ben E King, Elvis, and others.
