bunkerhill Songs that have become another's 'own' (40) RE: Songs that have become another's 'own' 06 Dec 99


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."
