"Santa Lucia" English lyrics --
Now 'neath the silver moon Ocean is glowing,
O'er the calm billows, soft winds are blowing.
Here balmy breezes blow, pure joys invite us,
And as we gently row, all things delight us.

Chorus:
Hark, how the sailor's cry joyously echoes nigh:
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
Home of fair Poesy, realm of pure harmony,
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

When o'er the waters light winds are playing,
Thy spell can soothe us, all care allaying.
To thee sweet Napoli, what charms are given,
Where smiles creation, toil blest by heaven.

I saw this earlier, but it lost some weight. ;-)

This is a very nicely put-together compilation, it must have taken a while.

That said, you might want to make it a stronger, 40-track collection by removing some of the lesser material, maybe 5 per disc?

Thank you, sir.
Yes, it lost some weight by me retracting Harbor Lights, Tender Feeling, This Is Our Dance, It's Impossible, The Last Farewell, before my final posting.

It did take a while. I was shooting for 50 titles, but yes, a trimmer 40-track collection would probably be more effective. I did my best to avoid titles that were already included in the 2001 RCA/BMG release, elvis THE 50 GREATEST LOVE SONGS, but ultimately used just a few that were vital for this compilation.

I'm generally not fond of remixes done by Spankox, but when I stumbled across "Gently" on YouTube, I found it to be a pleasant listening experience, and I felt that it had more bite than the original... and after all, it's still Elvis doing the singing.

I've sort of been on this "love song" kick for a few days now, so this thread pretty much wraps things up. Thanks for noticing!

Take a look at the worldwide impact of "Wooden Heart".
And remember to treat it nice, treat it good, treat it like you really should! :wink:

That page is actually more of a worldwide discography.

You know it didn't even make #1 in Germany? Any "worldwide impact" of "Wooden Heart" is how it marked a signal change in Presley's career direction. As 1960 began to wind down, fans discovered a clean-cut, deferential fellow in a neat army uniform singing a very soft ballad to a bunch of hand puppets and children. It was a number where he lapsed into German, and the lead instrument was an accordion.

This in his first film since leaving the army. We all know how this direction played out.

That's sort of a technicality though, drjohncarpenter, because Elvis' version was listed as #1 along with (unfortunately) another version of "Wooden Heart" by Gus Backus. It prevented Elvis from being solely credited with a #1 hit. What a strange (and unfair) way for them to do the charts in West Germany back then!
~ Click & scroll down to the section titled "Germany (November 1960)"
http://www.elvisechoesofthepast.com/heart-of-wood/

Also of importance...
Scroll down just a little further in that same "Germany" section
to the newspaper article titled "German Juke Box Ops Happy With Presley Hit".

It tells of just how popular (and controversial) Elvis' version truly was...
..."The Presley version, a sentimental, softly sung rendition, is West Germany's No. 1 juke box hit."
