Hey Friends,

I got a new YT video. And it's a cool version by Olivia of a popular Beach Boys song. Nice to hear a Lady's interpretation of this -

Boy ,was she a stunner and that whisper of a voice always got to me.

Whether it was all that good, I don't know but thanks for posting. I actually prefer her to the Beach Boys, as classic as that original is.

(Never a huge Beach Boys fan...but appreciate their legacy.)

Why couldn't Elvis cover her more? :D

Greg, Elvis covered more than enough Newton-John standards.

I think he could have tackled a few more.

I'm sure he could have "Presley-ized" a lot more of the Olivia songbook.

I can see you had high standards for Elvis' creative development as an artist.
