1956 - Elvis Presley introduces his new single "Hound Dog" on the Milton Berle Show,
and scandalizes the audience with his suggestive hip gyrations.

Hound Dog was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and originally recorded by
Willie Mae "Big Mamma" Thornton in 1952. Now go wag your tail.

  1. Wow Mae "Big Mamma" Thornton recorded that in 1952! Didn't realize that.
    I actually thought it was earlier.
