He should have done this in December 1973 in Memphis. The complete song of course. That would have been great.

Coupled with Little Sister is how I will judge this, and I find it extremely enjoyable. A jam yes, and not all the words but still a mini live classic to my ears. - I always sing along to this one so 4 stars from me.

Elvis really only repeats the chorus, so we don't get a full song, but I think Elvis picks up on how much he influenced Paul McCartney's song, and strips both Little Sister and Get Back down to essentially a bluesy jam. It may not be anywhere near my top 10 or even top 50 favs, but I thought it was a great surprise the first time I heard it and I still do.

Mediocre Beatles song, horrendous joke from Elvis.

Not my favorite at all and especially as it poluted the great rocker Little Sister. So I actually hate it and always skip it. I am sure some day I will cut Little Sister free from this dreadful song, as soon as I have the computer skills to do it.

I wish Elvis had sung the verses aswell as the chorus and learnt the song properly. He needed more quality songs from the best writers of the day. Whether they would have got to him is another thing. I'm sure Paul McCartney, Robert Plant or Elton John would have been willing to write a song for the King.

I like the Little Sister/Get back medley, very very much. The 1970 versions are the ones I like best. But I do love the complete rehearsal with almost 5 minutes from Culver City, in the summer of 1970. The way The King says "Jo Jo lost his Ass..." is so spontaneous that turns it outstanding. Only The King is allowed to treat a Beatles song like that! Unique.

Elvis should have listened to the lyrics more, 'Get Back to where you once belonged' and gone back to American & Chips.

This is a joke for song of the day. All Elvis does is sing the title. Nonsense.

Would have been interesting to hear an Elvis interpetation of the complete song.
