Good selection of love songs by the King
on 28 February 2005
Elvis recorded many great love songs during his career so trying to select just twenty-four for this compilation must have been a daunting task.
Several of those selected are the obvious classics that will be forever associated with Elvis (even if one or two of them were previously recorded by other singers) - these include Are you lonesome tonight, Can't help falling in love, Always on my mind, It's now or never, Love me tender, A fool such as I, The wonder of you and There goes my everything.
There also some Elvis songs that aren't always selected for compilations of this type (Don't, If I can dream) as well as covers of songs generally associated with other singers, but which Elvis sing superbly. These include Hawaiian wedding song, Fever, Let it be me, And I love you so, You don't have to say you love me and Unchained melody.
While this collection has much to commend it, you may wish to consider the similarly themed double CD (50 greatest love songs), which contains most of the tracks here and appears to offer better value for money.
