Thread Name: Origins: Hound Dog?
Subject: RE: Query: Hound Dog?
I prefer Mama Thornton's version and the lyrics make more sense than the Elvis version. I believe Mama felt L& S had stolen the song but hadn't the resources to fight them (legally that is, I'm sure they kept well away from her in the flesh, knowing her reputation as a brawler!).
