Video Recorded By DMAL+2 In the Style of Elvis Presley count off16 comments
I haven't done an Elvis tune for a long time, and I know a few of my friends are big fans of The King :). This is such a great classic. "Are You Lonesome Tonight?," is a popular song with music by Lou Handman and lyrics by Roy Turk. It was first published in 1926, and most notably revived by Elvis Presley in 1960. The spoken part of the song was loosely based on Shakespeare's As You Like it using Jacques' speech on Act II Scene VII: "All the world's a stage, and all men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts." It went on to be one of the biggest-selling singles of 1960, peaking at number one on the Billboard pop chart for six weeks and peaking at number three on the R&B charts.
