So, did you guess?

I just really love this song – it came in at number 9 in my Songs of the 1970’s Countdown last month, so it was always going to rank highly in this Countdown.

The version that was released here in Australia was again a cover version of a song from the late 1950’s and was recorded live in Las Vegas. There’s something about the combination of Elvis, Las Vegas, a live audience and a great song that sets it apart from the rest of his catalogue of hits.

A fitting number one and a great way to complete this Countdown – I’ll be back in March with the next Countdown. Stay tuned!
