"How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977
The original version is the best for me.
"If you're an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary; If you're not an Elvis fan, no explanation is possible.
I love the EOT version: kinda' rap in the middle of the song. The original version is a classssic. Love that one too, tough I should admit I voted here for the EOT version.
Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.
"You've got it all together like a lovin' machine
You're lookin' like glory and walkin' like a dream...
Mother nature's sure been good to Y-O-U"
I should have added 69, I was just choosing the more famous ones. I'm surprised EOT is losing to EIC, though.
true, I especially liked August 75, even though that engagement only lasted five shows. He did a nice T-R-O-U-B-L-E, My Boy, and Suspicious Minds
The original version for me !!!! Then after that itīs the 1969 versionīs.
I love the original live version - the Hayride performances. His voice is so young and energetic and I'm southern so I love his accent. It's just endearing and hard to understand. What is really charming for me is that he introduces the song as "I Got a Woman - way Over town" and he sings it that way, too. Even in later years, when he's corrected himself - at the very end he sometimes reverts to his first memories of the song and sings I-got-a-woman! Way OVER town and she-e-e's good to me!
Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go
