Anything that's Part of You
Words & Music:
I memorize the note you sent
Go all the places that we went
I seem to search the whole day through
For anything that's part of you
I kept a ribbon from your hair
A breath of perfume lingers there
It helps to cheer me when I’m blue
Anything that's part of you
Oh, how it hurts to miss you so
When I know you don't love me anymore
To go on needing you
Knowing you don't need me
No reason left for me to live
What can I take, what can I give
When I’d give all of someone new
For anything that's part of you

This song is very similar to "They Remind Me Too Much of You"... another song written by Don Robertson.
Unfortunately this song is rather familiar as to a host of Don Robertson songs. They all have a tendency to sound the same. Don't get me wrong though, a great vocal performance period, just a bit too redundant, much as a lot of other Elvis songs during the '60's.
Absolutely brilliant soft ballad which uses his matchless tender and soulful voice.
This is indeed one of his best ballads. Up there with can't help falling in love.
This is such a stellar ballad and Elvis' rendition of it was excellent. The other thirteen songs that Elvis recorded that were written by Don Robertson are "I Met Her Today", "I Really Don't Want To Know", "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here", "I'm Counting On You", "I'm Falling In Love Tonight", "I'm Yours", "Love Me Tonight", "Marguerita", "No More", "Starting Today", "There's Always Me", "They Remind Me Too Much Of You" and "What Now, What Next, Where To".
I couldn't see him do this in '77 at Omaha or Rapid City, but disagree that he couldn't do this in 69,'70 or '71. A slightly mellower voice may have given this beautiful love song a slightly different edge. Let's face it he made a terrific job on the likes of 'Ghetto and 'Daddy, so why not this? Anyway, I think this song is almost unbeatable and a darn shame it doesn't get promoted a lot more nowadays. The girls would love this!
one of elvis's greatest recordings,the amont of feelings the words conjure up as he sings.five stars all the way
Elvis delivery of this song is superb and one of his very best ballads. Definitely 5 stars from me.
Fantastic delivery of this song by "THE KING". I wish it was longer.
Great song. Outstanding vocal. Ballad Elvis at his best. Five stars.
Yes a great ballad & Elvis' voice got too deep for this type of song later on, shame.The 60s were a good time for his ballads.
Another outstanding, over looked ballad from the early 60's. Much like "They Remind Me Too Much Of You", "It Hurts Me", "Fame And Fortune" it was stuck on the flipside of an inferior song (although "Good Luck Charm" was still very good). Elvis' voice is so smooth on this one and he just oozes emotion and heartache. For those who say he can't act and try to hold up a movie like "Clambake" as proof (he didn't have to act in it, he was playing himself in a different occupatin), I hold up the way a seemingly happy Elvis in 1961 could produce a track like this that is haunting, delicate, sad, but so beautiful. 4 1/2 stars, maybe 5.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful ballads Elvis ever recorded! Elvis voice was supreme around this period and he was still able to choose material from the best songwriters available, such as this song from the pen of Don Robertson who never let us down. In my opinion this was far superior to the A side Good Luck Charm even though it did reach the top of the charts in 1962 in the UK.
Superb! Elvis´ voice was at his very best during this time. He could never sang this song in 69-77, cause his voice didn´t have the soft and clear sound at the end of his life that it had in the early 60´s.
an excellent performance; indeed on the same level as a Schubert song sung dy Dietrich Fischer Dieskau. Elvis at his top.
Sublime! One of his better recordings. His interpretation is as artistic as Fischer Dieskau singing german song. Makes me proud of being an Elvis fan.
Superb love song sung by the King of music. It is amazing how wide the range of his voice already was at that age. It shows how versatile he was. Indeed, a pity that later on this love song was not part of the show!
One of Elvis' best! I would have loved him to have tried this one live in 69, 70 or 71.
a beautiful song sung by the king of them all.
