You Belong to My Heart
Words & Music:
You belong to my heart now and forever
We were there beneath the stars while a million guitars
Played our love song
When they said I love you
Every beat of my heart said it too
do you remember
Darling you'll hear that song
And you'll always belong to my heart
, first released on
This is such a beautiful ballad, but Elvis should have recorded a full studio version of it instead. Elvis would have done an amazing job with this song had he done a proper version of it. So, I rated Elvis' very brief version of it just one star.
Is this the first time we hear Elvis sing in Spanish? The Crosby version is quite nice.
I have the recording by Dean Martin ivest
No way friends. It's not a country song, but a Mexican bolero song composed by the great Luís Aguilar and called "Solamente una vez". Translated into english, it became a number 4 hit for Crosby in 1945 and Dean Martin NEVER recorded it.
This song was originally a country song recorded by Sue Thompson and later picked up by Jo Stafford and Dino. I really like the song, all versions. What a good record it would have made for Elvis
Actually this song was a Bing Crosby song. Dean martin may have done a cover on it, but I haven't heard his version if he did.
Yes a Dino song. Elvis would have done a good job with this in the studio in the early 60's.
Wasn't it a Dean Martin song? So it makes a lot of sense that Presley played with it. He should've recorded a full version. He's voice was absolutely great for these types of songs. Could have been a massive hit in those days along with the softer early sixties songs as Are You Lonesome and Now Or Never...
"Solamente una vez... do you remember..." Short, but sweet ;)
