Black History Month Song of the Day - Hound Dog - Elvis Presley

Dave's Music Database

I couldn't finish off Black History Month without including Elvis Presley.  This song, one of the singer's most famous hits, was a remake of a 1952 blues song by "Big Mama" Thornton.  It was the first time of many that a white singer would make a big hit out of what was originally black music.  This one's for all of you fans of "The King."  Enjoy!

  1. Elvis wouldn't have been the King, without those black singers who gave him the songs and the inspiration.
