Elvis Presley sings more of my favorite love songs than any other singer.

1. Blue Hawaii

To me, this song is so romantic. “Come with me, while the moon is on the sea.”

2. Have I told you lately that I love you?

One time a guy was in a hospital bed, and when his wife was leaving, she asked him this question, and he wrote the song!

3. Don’t leave me now

Another lovely song.

4. Wear my ring around you neck

To me this song is so fantastic. When I was a kid, I loved the drums and the back up vocals. I was a big fan of E.P.

5. Young and beautiful

This is from the movie Jailhouse Rock, after the other man hurt his throat.

6. No More

I borrowed this record from a girl fan when I was a teenager, and this was one of my favorite songs by Elvis Presley.

7. Teddy Bear – one of my favorite love songs by Elvis Presley

This song is also on the ‘Loving You’ movie. When I was little this was one of my favorite love songs by Elvis Presley. To me, the music and singing and everything were just so fantastic. Seeing it on the movie, I realize that it is one of his best performances. The clothes, the lighting, everything.

8. All Shook up

Here is another one that takes me right back to my childhood. It is so romantic. A girl can mix a guy up so much. “My insides are shaking, like a leaf on a tree.”

9. It’s now or never

When I was at Graceland, I saw this record on the wall, and a note said that it sold 32 million copies.

10. Such a night

His on stage movements are so fantastic. No other singer can do it like him. “Just the thought of her lips, sets me on fire.”

11. Treat me nice

When I was a little kid and heard this song, I ran to my brother and told him I heard a new song called: “Dreaming eyes.”

12. Baby I don’t care

I love the guitar beginning of this number. When I was a teenager, this song felt so hip. That it didn’t matter if a girl was square, so long as she loved me. “You just want to park, where it’s nice and dark, and kiss and hold me tight.” This is one of my all time favorite love songs by the king: Elvis Presley.

13. You’re the reason I’m living

I heard this one on the radio years ago. So glad to find it on youtube. An old Bobby Darin number.

14. If you love me

Heard this one for the first time today. An old one from Olivia Newton-John.

15. Are you lonesome tonight

Many times I lie in bed at night and sing it silently to myself. A little while back I read the book by the same title, by Lucy de Barbin, and it is the most precious book about Elvis that I have ever read. It is so intimate and private. A real love affair. I understand now, why he looks so sad in so many of his photos.

16. I want you, I need you, I love you

I think it is very romantic.

17. Stuck on you

This was a big hit when I was a teenager.

18. Smokey Mountain boy

This was the first Elvis movie I ever saw, and I loved the beginning as he drove his jeep down the mountain singing this song. When I sang it, I only did the last verse, and put in my own home town name in the song.

19. Don’t be cruel

This was a big hit when I was a kid, and takes me right back to my childhood.

20. Blue moon of Kentucky

This a ‘live’ recording at the Louisiana Hayride. It is exciting to hear the crowd. This was on the flipside of his first record.

21. Don’t you think it’s time

I heard this one at a friends house when I was a young teenager. It felt so romantic. It brings back all those memories. The good times.

22. A fool such as I

A number of country singer did this one, but I like El’s version the most.

23. I can’t stop loving you

I never knew he sang this song, I have just found it now by mistake.

24. I can’t help falling in love with you

Lots of nice romantic pictures here. People and animals.

25. Paralyzed

This is ‘live’ at the Louisiana Hayride, back in the 50’s.

26. I beg of you

My brother had this EP record when I was a young teenager, and I loved this one the most of the 4 cuts. “I don’t want my heart to be broken.”

27. Playing for keeps

I think he knew how to play on people’s heart strings.

28. Kiss me quick

I wonder if kissing so many girls had an effect on him. I remember reading about Pat Boone not wanting to kiss any girl in a movie because he was married.

29. Love me

“Treat me mean and cruel, but love me.”

Favorite love songs by Chuck Berry

I admire Chuck Berry’s song writing ability, plus his guitar playing and showmanship. Here are some favorite love songs by the pioneer of rock and roll.

1. Promised Land “live”

This was a big song for Elvis.

2. Johnny B. Goode – Hollywood-a-go-go

When I was a teenager I remember watching Hollywood a go go at a friend’s house. Some of my special memories of favorite love songs.

3. Sweet little sixteen

He knows how to rock and roll.

4. Interview with Johnny Carson

I enjoy this so much.

5. Rock ’n roll music – with Tina Turner

Some hot moments.

6. Interview with Chuck Berry

7. School days

Most of my favorite love songs I heard while at high school.

8. Roll over Beethoven

This one runs through my mind many times, and takes me back to my room when I was a teenager. I often hear it on the radio by the Beatles.

9. Memphis Tennessee – My favorite love song by Chuck Berry

Where I come from, this was a big hit for Johnny Rivers. Although this is a sad story, I love the song. It is very sad to see marriages break up. At present I am reading a book by Alex Baldwin and his broken marriage, and love for his daughter.

10. No particular place to go

I often think of this drama, and it takes my mind back to a place I know overlooking a vast valley of lights from a big city.

11. Maybellene

I heard that when The Beatles visited Elvis Presley, that they jammed together playing this song.

 

Favorite Love Songs by Fats Domino

1. Blueberry Hill “live” – My Favorite Love Song by Fats Domino

Fats Domino has the crowd excited here on this “live’ recording. Thank you to all those involved.

2. I’m walking

Here is another one of his famous songs. He has a real good band, and he plays a mean piano.

3. I hear you knocking

I heard this song on the radio the other day that inspired me to do this section. The master at work.

4. Kansas City

I heard this song when I was young, and it was such a thrill to one day drive through Kansas City and think of this song. Both cities.

5. I want to walk you home

Very nicely done. Thank you to the person who put all those nice pictures with it.

6. Walking to New Orleans

Walking “live” to New Orleans. His girl spent all his money. It is a real juggling act between a guy loving a girl, and a girl loving a guy’s money.

7. Red sails in the sunset

The singing, the music and the pictures are all so very beautiful. Thank you Mr. Domino and the band and the computer expert who loaded the pictures.

8. I’m a fool to care

I think I have heard somebody else sing this song, but Fats Domino does it real well.

9. My Blue Heaven

When I was a teenager I heard an instrumental on this song, and I always wondered what it was all about. Then one day I heard Fats sing it on the radio, and it satisfied my curiosity. “Molly and me, and baby make three.”
