Sorry, that's a new tune on me. How does it go?

I'm more interested in gee manatley, which I have NEVER heard in my life and neither has the Merriam Webster unabridged. They do have gee whillikers!!

So the Ravens recorded something in 1953........ How many people were alive in 1953 besides the Ravens?

They also did Without A Song in 1953, The Wiffenpoof Song, Silent Night, White Christmas, and not necessarily the same as the Elvis tunes, My Baby's Gone and Sylvia.

Do I get the sweetie?

Woodley wins.

"Without A Song" with those lyrics Elvis recited in his '71 Jaycees speech--

without a song the day would never end / without a song the road would never bend.....

And I thought all along, Marty helped write that speech....Elvis' memory of verses and songs was amazing...truly his life's calling.

Over the years Priscilla helped write it and so did Red West.

Not saying either of those said that they did, just others have credited them with doing so.
