3.0 out of 5 stars Turn the lights out, 2 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Are You Lonesome Tonight? (Audio CD)
The success or otherwise of 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' depends very much on the mood of the listener at the time. Catch you on a good day and its sentiments can sound hokey and melodramatic. But if you're feeling blue, Elvis's tenderness and burning sincerity will eat you up inside.

To get fully into the mood Elvis had all the lights turned out in the studio when he was laying down the vocal.

He carries off the spoken bridge (which even paraphrases Shakespeare!) remarkably well - or at least I thought he did until a friend rather unkindly pointed out that it sounds like a speech by William Shatner in Star Trek, with some emphases in the wrong places. But no matter - 'Lonesome' is still one of The King's signature pieces.
