    Behind The Song: "Kansas City" by Leiber & Stoller << American Songwriter

    A blues with a melody...
    It's been recorded over 300 times.
    This is the one that made it a hit in 1959, seven years after they wrote it. (They also wrote "Hound Dog" that year, 1952. They were 19.)

    I sought out Big Mama Thornton records when I was young. And she was a force.
    But Elvis took that song somewhere else----him and Scotty rocked it!

    Couldn't agree more. His influence stretched far and wide. And deservedly so.
