Hound Dog was Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton's. It pains me to hear "The Dutchman" introduced as Steve Goodman's rather than Michael Smith's. Ditto for "Everybody's Talking," a Fred Neil song often credited to Harry Nilson. Elvis's tunes were borrowed from everywhere -- barbershop song "Aura Lee" becomes "Love Me Tender." "Plaisir d'Amour" becomes "Fools Rush In."
