This is the worst recording ever released under Elvis Presley's name! Awful.
This one makes the catalogue complete! Just kiddin'. This one should not even be on the list. Today's Song Of The Day does not give credit to Elvis and this site! Check other songs please.
This song was never recorded by Elvis. He fooled around with it in his private time and a tape recorder was running, that's all. If I would have to rate this private recording against his overall catalogue, sorry one star from me.
It just shows how broad Elvis' taste was. He felt embarrased when his "friends" found him playing this tune. Some friends, they were. "Please Elvis, don't read that book about religion, WE want to have some fun." I can do without such friends.
I find this quite intriguing and wonder if Elvis had heard Moonlight Lover by Doris Day which was based on this song. The version of Doris was different from a lot of her music and created a special atmosphere that was attempted in this recording by Elvis which PERHAPS might have succeeded in a professional studio.
I came here to comment on Song Of The Day and once again found the space wasted by something that shouldn't be listed. No star.
