Rating:
4.2 / 5

Words & Music: Joy Byers

Please don't stop loving me
You were born just to be in my arms
In my arms
Please don't stop loving me
Your lips were made just to be kissed by me
Kissed by me

When I'm with you
I don't know day from night, wrong from right
You are my world, that's all I know
I love you so, I won't let go

Please don't stop loving me
Darling you'll always be mine alone
Mine alone

The best song from an otherwise dismal soundtrack. Actually one of the better movie ballads from the mid 60's.

4 star ballad from the movie and soundtrack "Frankie And Johnny"(1966). Elvis mixed way up front worked on songs like this and "Puppet On A String", but not on the uptempo songs. Elvis gives a heartfelt performance and the song worked it's way all the way up to #45 on the chart. His highest charting B-side since "Ain't That Loving You Baby" in 1964.

This is such a sensational song and it's the best song from the "Frankie And Johnny" soundtrack album for sure.

A top notch film ballad from the 60's, and a rival to most of the studio slow ballad output during this period. To me it has real depth of feeling and is not far short of Can't Help Falling in Love in impact.

It sounds like a Don Robertson song and that's good. My favourite song from the soundtrack is Hard luck.

Fantastic performance of a very good song. Goes to show that even the worst 60s soundtracks have redeeming qualities.

Love it! Breath taking beautiful. Almost five stars.

Among my favorite Elvis ballads , this could easily have been on the Elvis is Back album.

This song i so good, the only song worth listning to on F&J album, but it must be the same song that won the Eurovision song Contest in 1964, sung by Gigliola Cinquetti - Non ho l'età

A beautiful balad. Elvis singing it so upfront of all other sounds makes it so great that after hearing it, it resounds in my mind for a long time.

I like this song a lot. But when I think of a breathtakingly beautiful ballad from a '60's soundtrack I think of "Can't Help Falling In Love" or "I Need Somebody To Lean On."

Better than average ballad, sung with a certain rawness by Elvis that you didn't always here. Not anywhere near his best, but still memorable and one of only a couple worthwhile songs on the entire soundtrack.

This is by far one of the very best Elvis movie songs from the 1960's and Elvis' rendition of it was stellar. It should've been a major hit for Elvis here in the United States, but it sadly wasn't. The other fifteen songs that Elvis recorded that were written or co-written by Joy Byers were "Baby, If You'll Give Me All Of Your Love", "C'mon Everybody", "Goin' Home", "Hard Knocks", "Hey, Hey, Hey", "Hey Little Girl", "It Hurts Me", "I've Got To Find My Baby", "Let Yourself Go", "She's A Machine", "So Close, Yet So Far (From Paradise)", "Stop, Look And Listen", "The Meanest Girl In Town", "There Ain't Nothing Like A Song" and "There's A Brand New Day On The Horizon".

Dull and uninspiring song from a lousy movie. Please.

Best song on the Frankie and Johnny soundtrack. Beautiful love song that you can hear Elvis is into.

Elvis recorded three soundtracks in 1965 (HS, F&J, PHS) and I prefer Frankie And Johnny to the other two. This period from "Girl Happy" to "Spinout" is the worst artistically in his career with very few notable songs. "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" is one of the better recordings of this period but nothing special. Enjoyable to listen mainly because it is Elvis! 3 1/2 stars

Something had happened with Elvis' soundtracks from Girl Happy and on. His voice wasn't bad during Girl Happy, but sounded unatural . Poor production. HS, F&J and PHS suffered from much of the same. It's a strecth to say all songs recorded during 1965 were poor. But, production didn't help much either. The DF series at least brought some fresh breeze into HS and F&J. As such those are my go to versions. The version of Please Don't Stop Loving Me sound much more "normal" to me on the DF. I agree it is one of the best songs from the soundtrack.

I totally subscribe to the fact that these 65 albums were poorly produced and I always go to the FTD version as they have vastly improved the sound. I love this track, by far the best on the soundtrack. Compares with anything good Elvis did in the 60s re ballads. Stand out tracks on the other 65 soundtracks are So Close Yet So Far and Sand Castles.
