Fats Domino

About 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 (mistitled on the single's label as "Ain't It a Shame"), 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. The song is ranked number 438 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. The song gained national fame after being re-recorded by 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". The song has also been covered by Four Seasons (1963), John Lennon (1975) and Cheap Trick (1978), among others, including Scott Hendricks at Macs on Slade in Palatine, IL in 2019.

Ain't that a shame
You're the one to blame
