Judy

Rating:
4.0 / 5

Words & Music: Teddy Redell

They say you found somebody new
Whose love will always be true
I don't know what it is to be alone
That's why I dread to know you're gone

Oh Judy, don't let our sweet love
Wither and die like flowers in the fall
Oh Judy, don't you know it's you
I love most of all

Oh, please come back I promise always to be true
Oh Judy, there'll never be anyone else dear but you

Oh, please come back I promise always to be true
Oh Judy, there'll never be anyone else dear but you

This is a nice song that fits on the album side perfectly. A nice beat, good lyrics, fantastic production, and Elvis in his best 1961 voice. When it was released as a single in 1967, it sadly was a bit dated for the pop scene.

Shoved away on the B side of There's Always Me for it's single release in the UK. Dated perhaps in 1967 but a better choice as an A side. I also like the original Teddy Redell version. Good song and well ecorded with Elvis in great voice.

The only song on side two (the rhythmic side) of the LP "Something For Everybody" that I wouldn't give at least fours stars. That said it is still a good uptempo number that deserves 3 1/2 stars. It just isn't quite as good as the other five songs.

Elvis at his best 5 stars

Nice jaunty medium tempo song that Elvis cruise's through in first gear with a marvellous piano break. The outtake 1 is also an interesting and enjoyable version. Never skip it and worth 4 stars.

Always loved this song. It must be Hank Garland on staccato guitar. Floyd Cramer is excellent as usual. A perfect little song.

I've always loved this song and Elvis' rendition of it was marvelous. The piano break by Floyd Cramer was amazing too. 5 Stars.

Classic Elvis!

This song is just mediocre at best. No challenge vocally for Elvis at all with this one in 1961. It was a poor choice by RCA for single release in 1967. The rocker "I Want You With Me" would've been a much better choice coupled with "There's Always Me".

2 stars. Boring filler, but is a step above "Put The Blame On Me"; now that song is filler plus!

A mediocre filler, lifted up by the great studio b sound by bill porter and elvis voice. He was truly in his prime as a singer at this point. Still one of the weakest songs on an underrated lp. 2 points for the song and 1 bonus pont for the recording.

Flawless sound, and a flawless vocal, but less than stellar material. Good LP filler I guess. SFE was a major step down from EIB. I once played this for a classmate named Judy back in the 60's. She thought it was bad.

I've always liked Judy since I first heard it! That was on a German EP called Kiss Me Quick! When I got hold of the Something For Everybody LP it was side 2 that were played the most. And the album remains a fav of mine! I feel that Judy deserve at least 4 stars!

Think the same as Steve V, "flawless sound, and a flawless vocal, but less than stellar material". BTW, if you don't mind the joke, I think that the Judy you knew didn't like you and so she overlooked the song, hehehehe
