Izvirniki in (sumničavi) rimejki 5


Zakaj "sumničavi", pardon, "sumljivi"? Ker je že izvirnik v resnici izposojen od nekoga drugega; namreč od ameriškega tekstopisca Marka Jamesa, njegovega avtorja. A nič zato: kar zadeva izvajalce in vokale, je Kralj še vedno eden in edini. Yeah.

Opomba. Če je širina zgornjega YouTube videoposnetka napačna ali se ta sploh ne predvaja, je to verjetno zato, ker uporabljaš omejeni brskalnik MalegaMehkega™ Internet Explorer ®

The song is about a mistrusting and dysfunctional relationship, and the need of the characters to overcome their issues in order to maintain it. Written by Mark James (aka Francis Zambon) in 1968, who was also co-writer of "Always On My Mind" (which Presley would later record), the song first was recorded and released by James on Scepter Records in 1968. Even though James' recording initially was not commercially successful, Elvis decided he could turn it into a hit on reviewing the song as presented to him by Memphis Soul producer Chips Moman, owner of American Sound Studio, in 1969.
