Thanks Brian! I just checked out the live Elvis version on YouTube. I didn’t realize he sang it, and he certainly put the Elvis touch on it!

Great selection slingers, that’s an old one! Btw Elvis did a great version too!

I’m not surprised Kale! Glad you liked it. I’m always on the lookout for songs I recognize/remember, not necessarily well known, that are playable and singable for me. This is one that made the cut.

I'm not familiar with this tune but I like it.

Definitely a distinctive name for a singer. These songs certainly do take us back. Thanks for watching and joining the Slingers as we stroll down memory lane Alan!

A big hit for Engelbert Pumpernickel Humperdinck in the land down under in the mid 60's, when I was a pimply faced 16 old man boy about town ;-D

Thanks and agreed Uncle John, this is an old one (I’m not sure we do anything that is close to new!!!). It’s also easy.

Wow, this one IS an oldie.   From when I was a little kid.   Nicely done, Slingers.
