Continuing with The Originals and Covers show, and this 2nd Half I was still thinking in Threes!
During the break I thought of a 3rd version of the Song I closed the First Half with.
I’ll have an Original that Elvis desperately wanted to Cover, but its lyrics were considered too racy for the general population.
Elvis HIMSELF worked and worked and re-wrote the lyrics in a more palatable fashion to please Colonel Tom and the record company, and had the big hit with it.
But The King did record the raunchier version, and I’ll play it!
Then a 50’s Classic surprisingly Covered in the 90’s.
And to end I’ll play what is probably my Favorite 50’s Ballad!
All things considered, an Educational, Interesting Show...he said....modestly, lol!
