    Elvis! He sang this song with so much power and emotion. The Righteous Brothers version sounds boring in comparison.

    I think the choice is pretty obvious... In an Elvis fans' site. No mater what, Elvis' version is so touching.
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    Loved the Righteous Brothers but Elvis beat them hands down. No one had as much soul in their voice as Elvis did.

    I voted for the second one just because I have a lot of memories connected to that version.

    This doesn't mean I dislike Elvis version....there's so much passion in his live performances of that song that I always cry

    well, i voted for elvis - but only because 'boots randolph' was not option offered .

    this song is not really one of my favourites - but as instrumental it's not too bad.

    hugs, ellie
    i don't suffer from insanity - i enjoy every minute of it

    Elvis' version by far! He just had a unique way of putting so much feeling into his music...he really made that song mean something more....

    Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..

    I know they sang it first but Elvis does it with so much more class in my opinion.

    I think that every song that Elvis sung sounds better than sung by others. Elvis had a way to sing a song so that I sounds great, whether it was a good song, or not.

    The Righteous Brothers's version is great, but Elvis's version is excellent

    Well....
    I voted for Elvis of course
    I love his version (especially the 1977 - piano version), he put everything he had in that performance Just so toching

    But, I think The Righteous Brothers made the song sound more classy That's what I think though lol.

    I voted for Elvis version simply because his rendition is different and full of emotion.

    I like both versions,its almost like they are two different tunes.The Righteous Brothers is so mellow and teenage 60's whereas Elvis' version is so powerfull and almost like an opera song.
