Elvis Presley - And I Love You So: Thanks For The Memories, Songs of Yesteryear

Thanks For The Memories:  Songs of Yesteryear
And I Love You So
by Elvis

This 'butterflies in your tummy and knees turning to wet noodles' song..."And I Love You So" was written by Don McLean and was first released on his own album in 1970.  Perry Como was the first to make it a big hit...but then after Elvis sang

it the first time...we all forgot anyone else had ever sang it before him....OR that there ever WAS anyone else before Elvis...hahaha
And from that first time singing this on stage in about 1975...Elvis sang this song at every single live concert until his death.
But HEY ... there's lots more ...

I was almost hesitant to use this song....because I'm such a sap for anything signifying true love and a forever after connection of two hearts and souls...and to me....the way Elvis starts out singing this song...well I just go as weak as a new born calf right from word one.  And I didn't know if I'd even have the strength to blog about the song...once I heard it again myself.  :-)

WHAT IN THE DICKENS IS IT....about Elvis Presley?  He really isn't that good lookin' least in MY opinion he isn't.  But I can be fizzing around doing this or that and the geezer will pass him on TV singing a old love song on one of his old documentary specials...and I just have to almost set down in the floor right where I am....  He just makes me as weak as a wet noodle just hearing his voice and he's been dead as a doornail for 35 years...

But do you know what?  "I" know what makes him so irresistible to us June Clever's of the world....It's his romantic aura that is so forever present...I think ALL "June Clever's" are hopeless romantics....And we see him on old movies and we watch him sing on his old television specials...and everything about him just says "There's no one here but me and you ...and I'm singing this song just to YOU!.....And do you know what, little lady?   I love you soooooooooooooo" 

ALL WOMEN...want to feel loved..No WAIT...LOVE should be a given...WE WANT TO FEEL ADORED!!!  And I'm sure the old geezers do TOO...But the geezers want to GET the pampering without GIVING the pampering back that makes a woman feel so special...and how's that workin' for ya, you old geezers....not real well I'd say.... Marriage and a good relationship takes give and take....BOTH SPOUSES need to be BIG givers....and what in the world would a person rather hear ANYWAY....than to have the love of their life walk up to them and just simply say "Ooohh, I love you so....."

After a lengthy "broken leg" absence of this popular addition to Bird's Eye View...We're about to get back to it!  

Thanks For The Memories:  Songs Of yesteryear
 will be posted before the blog some, many or most mornings.
I can't get more honest than that.

But here's the matter what I talk about in my blog each morning...By posting a daily love song from yesteryear and talking a little about it...there will always be a little love coming daily from you. 

                                     The very best love stories just have no ending
                       and I'm just so very blessed to be living one of those love stories.

                             BE THE CHANGE and LIVE AND LOVE WITH PASSION


Through all the years, he's never been more than an arms reach away....and that's one of the gazillion things I adore about him....and even after 50 years.....ooooooooooooohhh I love him sooo!

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I've lived till now
I tell them I don't know

I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand

And yes I know how lonely life can be
Shadows follow me
The night won't set me free
But I don't let the evening get me down
Now that you're around me

And you love me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirit free
I'm happy that you do

The look at life is brief
Once the page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief

And yes I know how lonely life can be
Shadows follow me
The night won't set me free
But I don't let the evening get me down
Now that you're around me
