    When He sings live He indeed adds some new words and feelings, so live versions are always better!!! We can feel some more special and never repiting, individual things!

    That song has always been a favorite of mine, but the live version has that something extra. When Elvis was into a song and the audience was responding- it made magic.

    I totally agree. Both versions are good, but the live is just great. Watch this, I especially like him at 2:15, & at 3:25 of course the added bonus is being able to see him as he performs.

    I like that song in both versions but I must admit live versions have always something more or different so I really prefer that one of this song too

    I love both versions but I think the recorded version is sung with much more feeling.
