"45 45's until I'm 45" (#29/45)

Good morning friends,

a well known song for you today again and - in my humble opinion - t.h.e. definitive reading of the old Elvis - favourite. Of course the truth of the matter is that the tune is not by Elvis at all (then again: what was back then? Nothing much, ey?), but by a chap called Mac Davis. So there you are ...

Hearing this one still sends shivers down my spine after all those years. Your number twenty-nine, people ... enjoy:

 
MUTE Records - MUTE 032 (1984)
 
See you soon,
 
Dirk

This is the result when two giants meet: the singer and the song.
See you soon

I worship at the alter of the Cave at least once a week. The genius of the man knows no bounds.

Most of Elvis' early songs were old blues songs - 'That's Alright Mama', 'Hound Dog', etc. The guy barely wrote as much as a word, let alone a note.
