Who are these brilliant song writers? Elvis couldnt write songs better than this? He should have seriously given songwriting more attempts.
Can anything be called a song with a duration of 28 seconds, not in my book. When listening to it on the masters series it appears more or less as a prelude to Violet, the truncated Love Me Tender of 52 seconds, equally not long enough to be called a serious song in it's own right.
This is one of many songs that Elvis should have refused to ever record. This song is a complete waste of time and it's not a quality song either because it's an atrocious song. It's truly a forgettable song. I rated this one star because there isn't a zero stars option.
Elvis shortest song? And which recording artist has a goat on a record? Elvis sounds great, but the "song" lacks a lot.
