Fats Domino - Blue Monday


"Blue Monday" is a song originally written by Dave Bartholomew,  and first recorded by Smiley Lewis in 1954.

It was later popularized in a recording by Fats Domino in 1956, on Imperial Records (catalog # 5417), on which the songwriting credit was shared between Bartholomew and Domino.

 Most later versions have credited Bartholomew and Domino as co-writers. Fats Domino's version was featured in the 1956 film The Girl Can't Help It. It became one of the earliest rhythm and blues songs to make the Billboard magazine pop music charts, peaking at number five and reaching the number one spot on the R&B Best Sellers chart.

 It was included on the 1957 album This Is Fats and the 1959 album Fats Domino sings 12,000,000 Records.

Fats Domino - Ain't That a Shame


"Ain't That a Shame" is a song written by Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew. Domino's recording of the song, released by Imperial Records in 1955,  was a hit, eventually selling a million copies. It reached number 1 on the Billboard R&B chart and number 10 on the pop chart.[2] The song is ranked number 438  on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The song gained national fame after being re-recorded by the white recording artist Pat Boone.  Domino's version soon became more popular, bringing his music to the mass market a half-dozen years after his first recording, "The Fat Man".

After "Ain't That a Shame", mainstream artists began covering Domino's songs. Teresa Brewer, for instance, performed Domino's version of the folk song "Bo Weevil".

A version of the song by the Four Seasons reached number 22 on the Billboard charts in 1963.

According to legend, Pat Boone suggested changing the title and lyrics to "Isn't That a Shame" to make it more appealing to a broader audience but was dissuaded by his producers.  Nevertheless, Boone's recording of the song in 1955 was his first Billboard number-one single. Domino complimented Boone's cover of the song.  Boone liked to tell a story about a concert at which Domino invited Boone on stage, showed a big gold ring and said, "Pat Boone bought me this ring."

"Ain't That a Shame" was the first song that John Lennon learned to play. He later covered it on the album Rock 'n' Roll.
