Shut up about My Boy. Yeah it sucks. Joke is old.

Is anyone else sick of reading about how My Boy sucks?

I don't like the song either. But stop making jokes about it. It's old.

Every single time I come to this forum, I'm reading a thread, and I run across a My Boy joke. It's not funny anymore.

Sorry, I like the song. Always have.

It's great during the '68 Special.

"My boy, my boy, my boy."

Why start an entire thread about it? Did someone make a joke about it today?

The song is no laughing matter. It was an international smash hit.

Maybe it's just all Doc.

(and no offense to him, love doc)

Burning love... wow and I started a thread about bad jokes?

Yes. I'm sick of reading about it. The subject seems to pop up on numerous threads.
Yes. The joke is old.
No. I don't think the song sucks. I've always liked it. Yes, the Richard Harris version, too.

I also love the song!

I think that the joke is better than the song!

I love it, and was pleased to hear it on an AT40 rerun a couple weeks ago...and now it looks like it'll be on next weekend's countdown, too. I guess Casey like's "My Boy", too.

I like the song, but I know what you mean about the stupid joke. But like many other things on this site, the more you react, the more they do it. Just another example of how lack of adequate site moderation turns a lot of people off.

Like it better than - let's say - Old Shep, Poor Boy, Let Me or We're Gonna Move and some songs from the second album which I happen to find overrated. My Boy is for sure not half that bad compared to most songs from the Love Me Tender soundtrack! Obviously some of the hardcore my-opions-are-more-valuable-than yours-members of this community will take a shot at that, but it happens to be my opinion. (No I am not a 50s basher and yes: I am a big fan of the early years!)

Alexander I happen to agree with everything you said.

Are you kidding me ? One of the first things I do when I pick up an Elvis CD from a local music shop is to see if "My Boy" is among the tracklisting.

My Boy is a classic track and I can't understand why people knock it.. it's ace...

I for one... know of a few people who class it as one of their favourltes and are always asking for it to be played at discos. One guy who has split up from his wife, always wants it played for his young son, who he hardly ever gets chance to see anymore.

Classic track - leave it alone

Sounds like a banging disco.

This was a big hit in the UK when I was staring out as an Elvis fan as a teenager, so it brings back memories and I like it. I think we should leave it alone and carry on knocking the continual disappointment of 1976 soundboards!!! LOL :lol:

Not only sick about this every day occurence but also about the ' everlasting 'santa belt' jokes and such. If one dislikes Elvis soooo much, my advice would be: get the hell out of here then.

I was thinking the same thing. The Santa belts. If it was for a few, we were only talking Vegas 1969.

"Do the Clam" was a hit too...doesn't make it iconic.

Nobody called My Boy nor Do The Clam being Iconic. Wooden Heart is iconic but I skip it with the same speed as I skip Do The Clam, most of the Love Me Tender soundtrack, Old Shep and some of the songs from the 2nd album Elvis. I rank My Boy on a higher level though.

I like "My Boy," and the jokes which go with it. This is only a message board. Lighten up and have some fun.
