The Wonder of You

Rating: 4.5 Stars4.5 Stars4.5 Stars4.5 Stars4.5 Stars
Words & Music: Baker Knight
When no-one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on

And you're always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you

And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I'm a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything

I'll guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me like you do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you
Recorded: 1970/02/18, first released on single

On some early versions you can hear Elvis singing the supposed background vocals too. The Sweet Inspirations and The Imperials didn't have their act together yet. A real showstopper this one. I love it.

This is such a beautiful song and Elvis easily has the very best renditions of it. It's my 3rd most favorite Elvis song and it rightfully was a big hit for Elvis here in the United States back in 1970.

This live performance is one of the best song releases of his entire career. The warmth, the power, the backing vocals, the instrumenatal break, and the grand finale make this unforgettable.

One of my favourites, an eternal karaoke number for numerous ropey crooners but a great, great song. Love the Great Performances version. Just heard the original Ray Peterson version of this and it's a lovely slow ballad that really highlights the beautiful meloy this song has. Very nice. But I still prefer Elvis' ;)
