Leiber & Stoller: Musical Badassery!

Turns out some of my very favorite "oldies" songs from when I was a kid were written by or with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller:

Along Came Jones  - Ray Stevens version
Charlie Brown - The definitive Coasters version
Hound Dog  - Best version EVER!
Jailhouse Rock - Blues Brothers Live
Kansas City - The Beatles? Yep.
Love Potion #9 - Neil Diamond, oh yes.
On Broadway - George Benson!
Poison Ivy - Who better to sing this song about STDs than the Rolling Stones?
Stand By Me - Almost as famous as the Ben E. King
Yakety Yak - Sha Na Na
