You knew I had to have The King on here some time. And why not start with “Love Me Tender”, one of my personal favourite songs from Elvis Presley? Now I’ll admit that seeing Nicolas Cage sing the song in David Lynch’s Wild At Heart pretty much cemented this one as a classic for me but I was already a fan. Something I learned quite late, “Love Me Tender” was actually a remake of a Civil War song called “Aura Lea” which basically sounds exactly the same but with different lyrics, obviously. Wherever it comes from, though, it’s hard to deny that Elvis pretty much nailed it and made it his own.
