OriginEdit

Blue Suede Shoes” was one of the first songs marking the formal inception of modern day rock and roll. As the story goes, its rise to prominence was an unplanned multi-artist effort. Johnny Cash recounted to musician Carl Perkins the tale of an airman who always referred to his fancy party shoes as “blue suedes”. Perkins randomly heard a honky-tonk date yell out “Don’t step on my suedes!”, and the idea for a song simmered in his mind. After finalizing the lyrics on a brown paper bag, Perkins produced his golden hit with Sun Studios.

Fellow crooner Elvis Presley adored the song so much, he followed up with his own version after Perkins’ original started dropping in the charts. Paired with the King’s charisma, tv appearances and usage in the film G. I. Blues, the new Suedes again became a phenomenon.

Well, you can knock me down / Step in my face / Slander my name / All over the place

"Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh / Honey, lay off of my shoes / Don't you step on my blue suede shoes / You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes"
