"Ain't That A Shame" by Fats Domino

One thing I know isn't a shame is that today is Fats Domino's birthday!

Ain't That a Shame marked his crossover into the mainstream when it first debuted in 1955; although it wasn't as big a hit at the time as Pat Boone's milquetoast version the same year, it's the one which has had the greater longevity. It was also the first of an amazing 37 Top 40 hits Fats Domino would eventually release.
