    Without a doubt, Elvis would have done a fabulous job with this tune. Its got that great R&B feel combined with his uncanny sense of rhythm, and he used to use the phrase all of the time. God, I can just imagine what this would have sounded like as well as performed on stage.

    "You're the best thing that ever happened to me"
    (all of them were recorded by Dean Martin in excellent versions)

    Yes !!!! - "You Can Leave Your Hat On "

    My other choices :

    " It's Just A Matter Of Time" - Brook Benton.
    " Detroit City" - Tom Jones.
    " Give Me One Reason" - Tracy Chapman.

    Re: Which song that Elvis DIDN'T perform or sang would you like to hear him sing it?

    I would love to hear one song that means the world to me, from an Aussie Duo...

    I have trouble choosing songs for Elvis to sing. I always have. However, there are some songs, that I love the feel of.

    In my opinion, John Farnham is one of Australia's best entertainers; however, his voice still isn't as good as Elvis', so again, the song just doesn't seem to fit. However, I love the song.

    My thinking cap needs to go back on! lol I also really like Brooke Benton.

    "Lonely This Christmas" by MUD

    I think ELVIS would have been twice as good on it.

    Re: Which song that Elvis DIDN'T perform or sang would you like to hear him sing it?

    Does anyone remember "Me and Mrs. Jones" by Billy Paul which was popular in the early 70's?????? I have always thought that Elvis would have done a knockout job on his tune, albeit, long forgotten by now. It has sort of a jazzy flavor to it, but no doubt Elvis could have put a blusey sound it to.

    I heard "Rose Colored Glasses" the other and realized what a perfect song it would have been for Elvis. Someone had told me that John Conlee had wrote that song about Elvis? Does anyone know if this is true?
