Today’s New Favourite Best Song Ever

February 24, 2011

Leiber and Stoller are my favourite songwriters. This was their first hit. I love Elvis‘ version, and I love the Big Mama Thornton original just as much.

Leiber and Stoller’s joint autobiography, Hound Dog, is well worth a read. I read it in a day, the first and only time I’ve ever managed that.
