March of Dimes
This isn't a song and I'll never understand how it ever became "Song Of The Day" here on this website.
Unless I'm mistaken wasn't this up on line last week???? Are the people running this web site on something? This is not a song, obviously, but Elvis doing an endorsement of the March of Dimes in 1957.... Give me a break folks. This web site is going down hill really fast.
I believe the melody for this one was based upon "March of the Tin Soldiers" from The Nutcracker Suite, composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Unless I am mistaken and it is one of John Philip Sousa's marches. Either way: 5 Stars!
It is very popular song and think it is missing, amongst others captured on the FTD releases 'All shook up' and 'Live in Las Vegas'. Of course this 'March of Dimes' is another great recording from a fantastic Elvis year.
Would have been a good song title for the G.I. Blues soundtrack back in the day.
