Love Me Tender

Love Me Tender ranked #78 on list of Top 100 Country Love Songs: Since its release in 1956, ‘Love Me Tender’ has been one of Elvis Presley‘s most popular songs — and one of the most recognizable love songs of all time.

Lyrics like, “Love me tender/Love me sweet/Never let me go” are so simple, yet poignant, that they have made this addition to the Top 100 Country Love Songs countdown a ballad for lovers and for parents and their children, too.

Presley performed ‘Love Me Tender’ on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ one week before releasing the song. The next day, RCA received one million pre-orders for the tune. It went gold before it was even released, and it continues to be one of the King’s most popular.

A True Elvis classic, based on the equally beautiful Aura Lee, Civil War song, which was a nice touch seeing as the movie was set in those harsh times. Elvis was great in Love me Tender, the exuberance he brought to the screen balanced out the rather dark plot and the woman who played his mother, really was convincing. Many the person who saw this film on tv, had tears when it ended. Gothic ending.

It was already a great (maybe unprecedented) success in 1956. And after all these years still is. Let's not forget that very often people tend to mention more recent songs as these are still 'around' in the general music scene.
