Perhaps you could add the phrase, "Incredible new CD set due from MRS!!!" to the header. That's always worked in the past.

Haha. Good one! Let's see if it attracts attention from moderators to Juan Luis question...

It worked! Thank you moderator :smt023

Brilliant topic (must have missed it until now) plus the idea to make it a 'sticky'.

Time to come up with another eye-catching topic title? I suggest, "Joseph Pirzada claims to have found Hound Dog session tapes in rubbish skip behind Tesco Express in Croydon."

Signs of the Zodiac

According to the book "Elvis - Frame by frame" written by Bill Bram (page 239) the lyrics for the movie version are changed by the wife of sreenplaywriter Arnold Peyser.
The original version was written by Buddy Kaye & Ben Weisman and this version has more verses. Also a lot of lines were changed.
It's unknown at the moment if the longer version was recorded in an earlier take. The master is track 2004 take 9.

Made a slight update today. If there are interesting and informative song related topics (as discussed on this forum) missing, please let me know and I will add them to this FECC Song Index.
