Lyrics And Music



recording date elvis: Friday, 17 July 1959; Informal
first release:




Elvis kept himself amused at times during his army stint in Germany by singing the popular songs of the day or songs that he knew from the past. Occasionally the tape recorder was on and capturing these very informal sessions (similar recordings of Elvis exist from other times and locations, too). On one such occasion, Elvis sung this rock'n'roll ballad, written and originally recorded by Leo Price. The number is probably better known in the versions of Little Richard and, of course, Buddy Holly.
