I'll Remember You
Words & Music:
I'll remember you
Long after this endless summer has gone
I'll be lonely oh so lonely
Living only to remember you
I'll remember too
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter, mornings after
Ever after, I'll remember you
To your arms someday I'll return to stay
Till then I will remember too
Every bright start we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Oooh, you'll remember too
I'll remember you

Wasn't the author of this song the reason for the Aloha special? I think he died of cancer and some of the money made from the show did go to the treatment of cancer. I'm not sure about this, but Elvis did do this song on the Aloha show. That version is even better then the studio one.
I rate this song very highly both in the studio and in live. I think the live performances in Aloha, and Madison edge out the studio version as they seem to have more atmosphere and feeling, and Elvis seems to gain something extra from the interaction with a live audience.
I really loved the LP version at the time it was released. A great bonus amidst the general movie songs. Goes without too much saying that the live versions 72 and 73 are just as superb.
The first version I’ve heard from this song was the outstanding performance Elvis gave in Madison Square Garden, released in the L.P. Legendary Performer vol.4. What to say, in face of such perfection: the voice, the music the crowd reaction... Simply a piece of heaven. Also like the Aloha and the Original version, but that one, from MSG is one of the best ballads ever performed live by anyone in Rock history and there’s a video of it in Youtube!!!
Very fine ballad. Miles ahead of the movie ballads at the time.
The studio version recorded in 1966 and included on the LP "Spinout" as a bonus song is good (Elvis fails to hold a couple of notes and seems to be having problems finding the right key to sing it in), but the live versions are excellent (72, 73 and 75). 3 stars for the original and 5 stars for the live versions.
The Studio version of this is just fantastic but his live version are just something else. I really love his 1975 versions however 1973 versions are still fantastic. Elvis showing his emotion. Got You Elvis
