Hearts of Stone

Rating:
4.0 / 5

Words & Music: Rudy Jackson

Hearts made of stone will never brake
'Cause your love is never there, they just don't care
You can ask and plea, please, please, please work
And all your love is there to stay

These hearts of stone will cause you pain
Although you love there has stopped just the same
You can ask and plea, please, please, please work
And all your love is there to stay
But they'll say no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You daddy know, I thought I knew hearts made of stone

Hearts made of stone will never brake
'Cause your love is never there, they just don't care
You can ask and plea, please, please, please work
And all your love is there to stay
Cause they'll say no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You daddy know, I thought I knew hearts made of stone

I've always liked this song and Elvis' rendition of it was tremendous. I love listening to the recent Memphis Recording Service remastered edition of this Elvis recording. It sounds far, far better than the very bad sounding recording of this song that first appeared on the Elvis "Sunrise" two cd set back in the late 1990's.

Every "new" song they have of Elvis is great. I'm listening to the Sunrise version, and the sound is really awful. Still, I'm happy to be able to listen to it.

The recent revamped recording is a lot better in quality than the first release. Not professional when compared to Sun studio tracks but somehow I find this song rarity both atmospheric, and beguiling.
