Your most hated 1970s studio track...

Fri Mar 13, 2015 2:56 pm

Hate is a strong word - most post 1968 Elvis tracks I like, a few I dislike but there's one I just can't stand...

Put Your Hand In The Hand

I always skip this track when it comes on... I can't explain why, but I simply hate it! It's almost like Elvis singing 'Kumbaya My Lord'.

So what is your #1 most loathed Elvis 1970's studio track and why?

If That Isn't Love, Take Good Care of Her, or It's Only Love.

Padre.

Put You Hand In The Hand is a good choice, but I will go with Three Corn Patches. There are plenty more though.

Love the 70s so thats a toughie, but always thought Life was a bit strange, and a couple on the ROR album, but mainly due to poor sound quality ..........

My favorite recording session of the 70s was the June 1970 sessions and yet there are three in a row I do not like:
This Is Our Dance
Life
Heart of Rome

This is a depressing topic, but it's hard to beat Three Corn Patches in the crap department.

ARE YOU SINCERE - Although his vocals are good
I MISS YOU
HE IS MY EVERYTHING
HE'LL HAVE TO GO - Too slow
ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Usually I like most of the 70s stuff but these above are simply awful - not HATED

I've found that AOMM is overplayed - doesn't anyone like myself find that if a song is overplayed it becomes boring to the point when you hear it again you sort of cringe?
Doesn't everyone feel like that?

Woman Without Love.

Re: Your most hated 1970s studio track...

- Only Believe
- Miracle Of The Rosary
- Put Your Hand In The Hand
- My Way (Studio Version)
- Take Good Care Of Her
- I Got A Feelin' In My Body
- Help Me
- If That Isn't Love
- Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain <--- That's the winner (or loser).

Dont hate any specific track but I struggle mainly with some of the vocal work in 71 when compared with the majesty of the year before and later. Only a few notable performances that year for me and I will skip things Like Fools Rush In, Put Your Hand in the Hand also (although the guitar solo is good)
Although ironically Its Only Love is one of my favs and very modern sound then and still in 1980 when it was a top 3 hit in the UK.

HEY JUDE
This is the only one i get uncomfortable listening. I think it was not a suitable choice for him.

Re: Your most hated 1970s studio track...

Fri Mar 13, 2015 6:35 pm

Now I recall HEY JUDE was recorded in the 69 sessions, athough released in 1972! :facep:

Funny
Had Hey Jude, Put Your Hand, Fools Rush In (i.e Now album and most of Fool) remained in the can we would all be ecstatic if they were given new backings and released fresh today. Theres an idea!

Life all the way baby! I just heard it last week for the first time in a long time and was reminded how bad it is. What was Elvis/Felton thinking?

Three Corn Patches gets an honorable mention. The arrangement is ok, but Elvis' vocals are at their very worst.

I don't like Mary In The Morning at all.

Why? Nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the morning... :)

In order:

- Padre
- Heart of Rome
- Life
- This our dance
- There goes / He is my everything
- Girl of mine
- Woman without love
- If that isn't love
- Take good care of her
- My way

Hate might be a bit strong (there is always that voice) but I can hardly stand these European- / Schlager type songs and I can fully understand why anyone listening to these would think Elvis did not matter in the 70s. I skip them always.
Thank God for the great tunes. Considering his body of work in the 70s this 'hate list' is not even that long. Though, admittedly, there are more songs that I do not care for much, Put your hand would make that list, as would Miracle of the Rosary and some others (My Boy too!).

This one's easy. Life. One of the few tracks I absolutely cannot stand to listen to.
