"Make Your Own Kind of Music" is a pop song written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil first recorded in 1968 by New York City-based trio the Will-O-Bees (Janet Blossom, Steven Porter, and Robert Merchanthouse) who regularly performed Mann/Weil compositions. After Cass Elliot had a hit in the summer of 1969 with Mann/Weil's "It's Getting Better" she recorded "Make Your Own Kind of Music" as the follow-up single and her album Bubblegum, Lemonade, and... Something for Mama was re-released as Make Your Own Kind of Music, the title cut having been added to the original track listing. However Elliot's "Make Your Own Kind of Music" single only just reached the Top 40 at #36: the similar chart impact of the follow-up single: another Mann/Weil composition entitled "New World Coming" which reached #42, signaled Elliot's inability to maintain a profile as a current hitmaker as the 1960s turned into the 1970s. The Cass Elliot track is in the key of E major.
Cass Elliot (born Ellen Naomi Cohen; September 19, 1941 – July 29, 1974), also known as Mama Cass, was an American singer and member of The Mamas & the Papas. After the group broke up, she released five solo albums. In 1998, Elliot, John Phillips, Denny Doherty, and Michelle Phillips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their work as The Mamas & the Papas. Her daughter Owen Kuegell stood in for her mother at the ceremony.
