This is my entry for this month’s Music Passion- “Songs In The 50’s

Love Me Tender

It is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and published by Elvis Presley Music, adapted from the tune of “Aura Lee” (or “Aura Lea”), a sentimental Civil War ballad.
“Aura Lee” was published in 1861 with music by George R. Poulton and words by W.W. Fosdick, and this Civil War song later became popular with college glee clubs and barbershop quartets. It was also sung at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.

Brief History

Elvis Presley performed “Love Me Tender” on The Ed Sullivan Show on September 9, 1956, shortly before the single’s release and about a month before the movie, Love Me Tender, was released, for which the song was originally recorded. On the following day, RCA received 1 million advance orders, making it a gold record before it was even released. The studio, 20th Century Fox, originally wanted to call the movie The Reno Brothers but instead re-titled it Love Me Tender to capitalize on the song’s popularity.

Movie producer Hal Wallis would not allow Presley’s regular band (Scotty MooreBill Black, and D.J. Fontana) to play on the soundtrack. Instead, The Ken Darby Trio provided the musical backing with Red Robinson on drums, Charles Prescott on bass, Vita Mumolo on guitar, and Jon Dodson on background vocals, with Presley providing only lead vocals.

The song is credited to Presley and Vera Matson because of the publishing agreement reached for the assignment of royalties (with the exception of a few songs, the King had no songwriting input on any of his huge catalog of music). The principal writer of the lyrics was Ken Darby (Matson’s husband). The song was published by Elvis Presley Music.[1] Darby also adapted the Civil War tune, which was in the public domain. When asked why he credited his wife as co-songwriter along with Presley, Darby responded, “Because she didn’t write it either.”

Presley received co-songwriting credit due to his Hill & Range publishing deal which demanded songwriters concede 50 percent of the credit of their song if they wanted Presley to record it; Presley never wrote any of his own songs according to Peter Guralnick.[2] But he did co-write “You’ll Be Gone” and “That’s Someone You Never Forget“. As with nearly all his early RCA recordings, Presley took control in the studio despite not being credited as producer. He would regularly change arrangements and lyrics to the point the original song was barely recognizable. This, arguably, justified the cowriting credit in this case.

The song hit #1 on the Billboard charts the week ending November 3, 1956, remaining in the position for 5 weeks and reached no. 11 on the charts in the UK. “Love Me Tender” also reached number three for three weeks on the R&B chart.[3] It was also an achievement as “Love Me Tender” succeeded another Presley single, “Hound Dog/Don’t Be Cruel” at #1. This occurrence marked two important events in Billboard history. During this time, Elvis accomplished another record; the longest consecutive stay at number one by a single artist, sixteen weeks, though this was tied by Boyz II Men in 1994 and stood for eight years until being surpassed by R&B singer Usher in 2004 who spent 19 weeks at the top of the charts.

This version was ranked #437 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In 1968, Presley recorded a 52-second track entitled “Violet (Flower of N.Y.U.)” for the soundtrack of the film The Trouble with Girls. Unreleased until after Presley’s death, the song was Presley’s second adaptation of “Aura Lee”.

Although Presley never re-recorded “Love Me Tender” in a studio setting, two live recordings of the song were released on the albums: NBC-TV Special(1968) and Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden (1972), with additional performances from concert and television appearances being released after Presley’s death. The song was also performed in the Golden Globe-winning concert film Elvis on Tour (1972).

Blog On Fire Award,Top Recent Commenter Twice and I Am It Again 6x

Sarah

sarahpotterwrites says: I tagged you, and hope you’d like to play:-)

Thank you so much Sarah, I just loved your 11 Questions:
1. What’s the naughtiest thing you did at school, and did you get caught?
When I was in High School, I cheated in my exam and I let  my seatmate to copy my answers and yes I got caught… hahahaha

2. What’s the worst grade you got in an exam, and was it your fault or someone else’s? I experienced to get 5.  Our grading system was 1-2-3-4-5.  If you get 1, it means excellent 100%.  5 means failed.  And it was my fault because I did not study.  So I must get 1 to pass the subject on the final exam.  And I usually got 1 so I had lots of those 3 grades… hehehehe

3. Have you ever farted at a really embarrassing moment? not yet… thank God, hahaha… but Vincent and I farted together after we ate different kinds of seafood and we were about to sleep… Wow the smell was so awful we both got up and opened our window and we had a lot of fun laughing.  It felt good though… LOL 

4. What do you feel about writing Christmas cards?  Oh I just love doing it, it just that nowadays, I do not do it anymore because it is faster to just send e-mails, but I missed doing it.

5. Do you sleep on your back, front, left side, right side, curled up in a ball, straight out, recovery position, or upside down? Funny because I just do it all, but most of the time on my back.

6. What percentage of books on your bookshelves have you read? Oh I have no idea…

7. If your computer is running slow, or your internet is down when you’re in a hurry, how do you react? Nothing, a bit upset but not really 🙂

8. Have you ever been to a party and wish you’d behaved differently? Yes

9. If someone you know and like has written a totally crap story, poem, or song and says they’re going to try to get it published, do you tell them it’s crap or leave them to learn the hard way? I will tell my opinion how I feel about the story but then still leave it all up to him or her to decide whether he or she likes it to be published.  It’s better to do something than not doing anything at all.  Anyways, mistakes will make us grow wiser and better until we become our best.

10. If you won or inherited a vast sum of money, would you feel happy or burdened by it? I will be very happy about it… for sure!

11. Is there an occasion when you spoke up about something and wish you hadn’t, or didn’t speak up about something and wish you had? Yes, but rarely.

My respond are the ff:
